I worked at LogicaCMG

Pros

- good working atmosphere (even when showstoppers came up everyone was relaxed and professional until the problem was resolved)
- great staff days out (quadbiking, go-carting, etc always something exciting)
- great project standards (coding, project processes - made code review easy)
- Great online intranet knowledge base where you can find most things related to whatever role you do
- what you put in you get out (efforts are usually recognised and rewarded due to the good project structures employed)

Cons

- everyone is asked to step up during frequent project deadlines and this does mean having to work compulsory long long days sometimes
- at software engineer/designer/tech lead level, the longer you stay on a project, the more dispensable you become to the project (which goes against how they advertise Logica as being a company where you can move around a lot - although I did notice the mangers got rotated quite frequently)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees transparency to project 'rolling end dates' rather than disguising them as 'concrete end dates'. I enjoyed my time at Logica, however one qualm I did have was being told after 2 years on a particular project I had a concrete end date to leave the project and try something new. But this concrete end date turned into a rolling end date and I found myself on the project for nearly 4 years. On the interview day, as the interviewer specifically sold Logica to me as 'a company where you can move around and try lots of different things', I felt slightly misled.
