    Pros

    Big Player, if you looking for this.
    Global operating model, one tool/system.
    If you get a project, you can stay for long. Very long time. Within the same customer.
    Restruc? You may get some money to leave ("Abfindung").

    Cons

    Business model does not work in Germany.
    Runs on T&M business, not projects.
    Swiss shut down (AMS, Logica Operations sold).
    Low to no Bonus.
    Not much career opps.
    German Management in charge for too many years.
    Low cost supplier of IT Services to large customers.
    Far beyond the market, competitors and state of the art technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and change.

    Pros

    The work-life-balance is ok, the colleagues are great, the benefits and projects are good.

    Cons

    If you have no project it could be awful for you. The management looks always on the ROI also get a project and create a high value.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a chance to grow and pick some good projects and don't kick them off after some days without a project.

    Company has a lot of global control processes but only a few global business processes and virtually none for asles => turn these figures around: less controll more co-operation in sales and marketing

    Pros

    Nach jahrelangem Verschlafen werden jetzt vermehrt junge Kollegen und Kelleginnen eingestellt. Das ist sehr zu begrüßen, allerdings fehlt auf der anderen Seite das Knowhow welches von älteren Kollegen weiter gegeben wird, da diese das Unternehmen mehr oder weniger verlassen. Und erfahrene Kollege eher einen Bogen um die CGI machen...

    Cons

    Vieles verändert sich zum schlecht. Interne Prozesse werden extremst aufgebläht was in der Schlussfolge der Mitarbeiter auszubaden hat. Ganz nach dem Motto: Ihr verdient sooo viel, da ist das doch eine Selbstverständlichkeit.

    Es zählt nur die billability.

    Advice to Management

    Nehmt die Mitarbeiter als Menschen wahr und nicht als eierlegende Wollmilchsäue!! Jeder hat mal Feierabend und braucht die zeit auch zum Regenerieren. Es ist nur noch ein Fordern und Liefern von euch zu hören. Selbst um 2 Mark fünfzig muss gefeilscht werden.

    Es reicht seine komplette Arbeit innerhalb der 40h zu verrichten. Da müssen nicht noch zusätzliche Pflichtveranstaltungen am Abend (nach der Arbeit) reingedonnert werden. Ebenso ist es sehr kontraproduktiv gegenüber dem Mitarbeiter zu verlangen, seine administrativen Tätigkeiten, welche jeder Berater nun mal hat, in seiner Freizeit zu erledigen.

    Pros

    Die Projektlage ist gut. Es ist nicht schwierig, ein Projekt in der Nähe von Großstädten zu finden.

    Cons

    Das Unternehmen ist groß und international, hat dementsprechend auch eine steile Hierarchie und Unmenge von Frameworks und Standards. Je nach Team kann es vorkommen, dass die Team-Kollegen wenig Gelegenheiten haben, sich zu treffen.
