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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Pay reviews are strictly performance based which is not all bad.
    You would get to travel around and work in different cities if you like.
    I you want to exposure to new technologies, you would get enough chances.

    Cons

    I noticed a lot of senior heads leaving the organization as soon as CGI took over so i would suspect something went drastically wrong.

    LOGICA had the UK culture engraved which CGI changed out right and bought in american/Canadian culture of hiring and firing at will.

    You gotta be careful with some very old/boring projects where once you get in, they will not le you go at ease.

    Pros

    Talented Peers, Informal setting, good training opportunities

    Cons

    Pay is woeful especially if you are a graduate and do not expect any hike for a long time. Inept senior management and now that CGI has taken over the company, not sure how it will change as the core senior management is still there

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck

    Pros

    The consultants are individually and collectively very good and specialised.

    Cons

    A big revisioning exercise was going on, but this seemed to stop at management level as a culture or way of working - the people doing the work did not need to be engaged in such corporate engineering and most found it an intrusion and an insult to what they believed in.
