    I worked at Logica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    When done properly (which wasn't too often wen I was there) you have the opportunity to work on different projects during your tenure there.

    Cons

    Very poor career development planning. Met several people who had been doing the same role for years and weren't able to move due to project commitment. HR very badly organised. When I joined several new starters and I were unassigned for up to 4 months. Whilst this was during the cgi takeover, it appeared to be part of the culture at logica.

    Pros

    Loved the people, loved the culture, loved the clients!!!!! Best career move I ever made and wish I had never left! Grass is definitely NOT greener anywhere else.

    Cons

    Still a lot of work to be done with internal training and development and working through the growing pains of the CGI acquisition, but the light is on the other side!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate, communicate, communicate! Train and develop your internal staff as much as you can to keep them around forever.

    I worked at Logica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of great talent on the teams and at the client sites with great potential and lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Some of the worst leadership I have ever had the displeasure of serving under. Bad management started at the very top and continued all the way down. There were of course some decent and reasonable leaders but for the very large majority, this companies leadership was abysmal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company was recently purchased by CGI. One of the primary reasons CGI could do this is because the leadership ran the company into the ground. Once the new owners were in, they did exactly what I would have suggested. They cleaned house of most of the leadership teams. Both globally and in North America.

    Pros

    Great Leadership and vision from the European Leadership Team

    Cons

    Leadership team in North America was a joke! Supposed C-LEvel executives were no more than tactical managers with no strategic vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully the consultants will prosper under CGI.

    Pros

    Laid back, relaxed expectations. Go along and get along.

    Cons

    There is a definite boys club in Senior Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are who they are by the time they reach their 40s. If they haven't acquired management experience by then, don't expect them to get it over night just because they have the title.
