    Pros

    Competitive pay. My manager is great and really cares about me as an employee. I feel valued. I am a full-time employee of CGI working for another company, which lets me have every other Friday off and work from home once a week. CGI doesn't mind at all, just as long as I'm happy and my client I'm working for is happy. There's also great communication from upper management about what's going on in the company and what they're working toward next.

    Cons

    Last year the healthcare was wonderful, but they changed what they offer for 2014 and I was extremely unhappy. They also don't match much of anything toward retirement. I also don't see much room for growth/other opportunities within the company, but that may be subjective.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication, it's appreciated. The benefits to employees need attention, though.

    Pros

    The work isn't too difficult.

    Cons

    I have worked for this company for over 10 years. Ever since my original company (Stanley Associates Inc.) was acquired by CGI Federal, I have watched this company self destruct. Since the acquisition the following benefits have either been reduced or discontinued:
    - annual raise reduced (no longer keep up with inflation or cost of living)
    - vacation time reduced by 5 days per year
    - health club reimbursement discontinued
    - home computer reimbursement discontinued
    - complimentary refreshments discontinued
    - employee appreciation events vanished
    - etc., etc., etc...

    This company is all about the bottom dollar, the employees are now left with a seat somewhere in the back. One only has to look at the healthcare.gov debacle to really see where the priorities lie.

    Advice to Management

    If you continue to chase the almighty dollar while pushing your employees (or members as you like to call us) to the background, you will soon find yourself without the talent necessary to make this company a success. You must realize that winning contracts is only half of the battle! It is the people who execute those contracts that make this company a success!!! If you don't take care of your employees, they will soon go find another company that will.
