    Pros

    A very laid-back, fun place to work (at least in my group). Hours are lenient as long as you're being productive and accomplishing things on track. Everybody's really willing to be helpful and get you what you need.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any off the top of my head. Many, many status meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.

    Pros

    The reason you work at CGI Federal is because you want to advance your career in IT and appreciate your work life balance. CGI Federal is a great company to work for, large enough that they can be flexible without having you feel just like a number.

    Cons

    Opportunity to work outside of the Federal government contracts. Being in the Federal space it is difficult to get experience in the corporate side of the business (CGI and CGI Federal are separate companies).

    Advice to Management

    Move people around more and give the younger members more responsibilities.
