    I worked at Logica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free Tea and Coffee.
    Paid the Mortgage for 3 years.

    Cons

    Left the company 6 months ago.

    Left due to the way Logica treats its staff.

    No pay rises. Period.

    Agree with other people on here about the crap review process, but a large part of the review process is to make sure you don't get a high grade, as that would involve a pay rise. So - tiny mistakes get amplified , goalposts get moved, etc. What's the point in working hard when a high grade is impossible to get? The review process encourages slacking, buck passing and office politics.

    No training. If you get put on to a project that has Java, and you know nothing of Java , well - thats your problem.

    No promotion prospects. Same job title and pay grade for 3 years. Just got moved around projects.

    Changes in terms. I.E Used to have flexitime but had it cancelled as “the project requires it”. Company moved office from cardiff to brigend. Told to like it or leave. P.S the new bridgend office has no parking spaces. Only join if you like a 30 minute walk from the car park to the office every day.

    Managers would not let people take holidays they wanted most of the time: “to maintain minimum staffing level at all times” – I.E sitting in the office on facebook on xmas eve.

    Never ending redundancies.

    Logica is a company that has utter contempt for its staff.

    Avoid.

    Advice to Management

    Resign!
