    Pros

    Competitive Salary and Benefits and ability to actually use vacation time

    Cons

    Extremely poor top-down communication, leadership, morale and career building

    Advice to Management

    ALL members of Sr Management should verify communication is sent down the way - when one member fails, the whole line fails; when the same member is known to fail time and time again at communicating down the chain (failure to perform reviews, failure to acknowledge direct reports/employees, etc), then SR Mgmt is actually failing

    I worked at Logica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When done properly (which wasn't too often wen I was there) you have the opportunity to work on different projects during your tenure there.

    Cons

    Very poor career development planning. Met several people who had been doing the same role for years and weren't able to move due to project commitment. HR very badly organised. When I joined several new starters and I were unassigned for up to 4 months. Whilst this was during the cgi takeover, it appeared to be part of the culture at logica.

    Pros

    Big accounts mean big names in your resume

    Cons

    Managers are not aligned with some of the consulting work, in some cases are completely clueless on what's going on around there.
    Employees benefits are OK - Some housekeeping will improve admin functions

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees. Remember McDonalds' approach to god!!! Too much hiring from outside breaks the confidence from the subordinates

    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.
