    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work isn't too difficult.

    Cons

    I have worked for this company for over 10 years. Ever since my original company (Stanley Associates Inc.) was acquired by CGI Federal, I have watched this company self destruct. Since the acquisition the following benefits have either been reduced or discontinued:
    - annual raise reduced (no longer keep up with inflation or cost of living)
    - vacation time reduced by 5 days per year
    - health club reimbursement discontinued
    - home computer reimbursement discontinued
    - complimentary refreshments discontinued
    - employee appreciation events vanished
    - etc., etc., etc...

    This company is all about the bottom dollar, the employees are now left with a seat somewhere in the back. One only has to look at the healthcare.gov debacle to really see where the priorities lie.

    Advice to Management

    If you continue to chase the almighty dollar while pushing your employees (or members as you like to call us) to the background, you will soon find yourself without the talent necessary to make this company a success. You must realize that winning contracts is only half of the battle! It is the people who execute those contracts that make this company a success!!! If you don't take care of your employees, they will soon go find another company that will.

    Pros

    This is a big company with plenty of opportunities and a real team environment. The company culture is very suitable for any type of personalities, not just cut-throat types.

    Cons

    Conflicting company structure that creates a lot of strife "in-house".
