    Pros

    CGI provides lots of opportunity for diverse work assignments. They have a wide variety of projects and customers and are very open to moving employees around to different projects.

    Cons

    CGI does very little to encourage a work-life balance. They have caps on vacation and comp time, and ofter require very long periods of time where taking vacation and comp time are not possible. This almost certainly leads to lost benefits. There are no real policies or practices related to doing your job. While in some cases, this could lead to very efficient small groups, in most cases is leads to varying degrees of poor management which puts the burden for success on the lowest level employee who is unwilling to tolerate failure.

    Advice to Management

    Management, please do one of two things: either appropriately compensate and reward the superstars that keep you projects running, or reduce the burden and improve middle management such that the superstars needn't be heroes.
