Current Employee - Project Manager in Fairfax, VA
Current Employee - Project Manager in Fairfax, VA

I have been working at CGI full-time (more than a year)

Pros

High visibility projects using cutting edge technology which push the envelope of their functionality.

Cons

Company focuses too much on account management and not project management. Those who win the contract are not always the right people to run the project.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand there is a big difference between account management and project management. Use experienced program/project managers to run the project and grow it organically...use account managers to run the business unit account and focus on new project business development. Use project lessons learned to benefit future projects. Value individual member contributions to the big picture.

    I worked at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Telecommuting several days a week. I worked in the Troy, AL office. VERY small town (too small for an alternative to Walmart for shopping).

    Cons

    I was happy while working on 1st project. 2nd project I was put on was NOT a fit for my skill set and I was nearly immediately put on performance probation.

    They moved me to AL where no one on my project resided and I did everything remotely from my team. There was no reason that I should have been moved. If I had known it was short term I would not have moved my family or bought a house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Warn people they are only short term so they can make an informed decision.
