    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.

    I worked at Logica

    Pros

    Flex time, work from home policy, benefits, training program, salary

    Cons

    position changes often without a notification, management lacks communication with the rest of the company,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication is key, make sure it gets passed down all the way rather than stopping at top management

    Great initially, poor executive leadership made hasty decisions regarding personnel during the recession.

    Pros

    International company, opportunities for growth, friendly clean work environment, clearly articulated roles and responsibilities, cutting edge technology, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor (at the time) executive management, so hungry for work that the company was willing to chase any lead instead of refine a niche, local competitors include much larger and well funded businesses including IBM and Accenture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A competent CEO would do wonders for the business, spend more time walking the halls of the organization to get a better feel of the pulse of the employees.

    I worked at Logica

    Pros

    Logica has a very positive global brand and has an extensive and impressive history in developing innovative and cutting-edge ideas. Andy Green has done an amazing job in turning around the company and focusing its energies on core strengths.

    Cons

    The US has a lack of focus and being that it is a Europe-centric company, does not get the attention and resources it needs to thrive here. US management has also been very unstable and it is hard to see a clear vision from the leadership team in growing the US market and tactically how to get there. Lastly, there needs to be less fear of risk and a greater emphasis on crafting creative solutions for customers. Cookie-cutter outsourcing iservices s not a good long-term strategy and is simply commodity business that other firms have already mined with more success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the US, do not just swallow vision from corporate, but build up a strong niche business in the US. Support your staff more and provide regular, honest, and constructive feedback. Give employees time to develop business and services; do not to grow impatient with the pace of results. And most importantly, been stability to the management ranks and help employees see that Logica is a positive and long-term place to work in the US.

    I have been working at Logica

    Pros

    Big accounts mean big names in your resume

    Cons

    Managers are not aligned with some of the consulting work, in some cases are completely clueless on what's going on around there.
    Employees benefits are OK - Some housekeeping will improve admin functions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your employees. Remember McDonalds' approach to god!!! Too much hiring from outside breaks the confidence from the subordinates
