Cyber Security Engineer (Former Employee) –  Rhode IslandSeptember 18, 2018
Very poor management. Rude and hateful and they try to micromanage you even if you have had years experience doing this type of work at another firm. Micromanaged to the point of harassment. They drag their orientation out to a year so you don’t get all the benefits starting out which is bull and they tell you it is in your favour to not get burnt out. Bull. Terrible. I hate this company.

Great place to work
Support Associate II (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 18, 2018
This office has multiple teams that work together to process passports. All new hires go to mail processing. Expect to be busy from the moment you walk in until you clock out. No internet access in most desk and managers are pretty set on keeping you busy at all times. Wok volume varies but you will always have something to do.
Pros
Easy tasks with little learning curve
Cons
Not a lot of room for advancement

Poor Management
Network Security Specialist (Senior) (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 17, 2018
Poor Management and unorganized organization. Orientation was not very organized, walking all over the place to find the correct location of the orientation, since the location stated on the calendar was the wrong one. Good co-workers though.

Logistics Technology Specialist (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALSeptember 16, 2018
Enjoyed my time with CGI Federal. Benefits were good. Upper management was always engaged and treated you with respect. Only left because I was a government contractor and we had a new contractor win the bid and they cut our pay 40%.

Passport Associate Support II (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 13, 2018
Great company to work for when your are just starting out. If you want to advance you have to be willing to move to a larger office or go corporate. the pay could be better for the amount of work that you do but the hours aren't bad and you don't work weekends. management isn't bad either, but they can be a little overbearing at times.
Pros
great to get your foot wet in the government world, if you are looking for growth and something more advancing try the corporate sector
Cons
not much room to grown and advance. pay is decent but just barely

Not many opportunities are given for internal growth. More opportunities are given to new hires rather than being provided to employees from the inside.

Good place to work
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VASeptember 2, 2018
Typicall Day - every day is busy, lots of online meetings and phone calls, lots of problems to resolve; sometimes choatic

More than adequate online (Skillport) opportunities, plus tuition assistance - Learned Much on my own thru the job function and research

Management: Variable - frequent reorganization, acquisitions, changes in processes and decisions

Workplace culture - mixed

Hardest part of the job - keeping up with the constant changes in organization and processes, trying to stress excellence

Being busy, solving problems, making a difference
Pros
Very large company, lots of opportunities for change or growth
Cons
Salaries are poor and not competitive

Director of Learning and Development (Former Employee) –  Troy, ALAugust 29, 2018
I have great computer skills and have created and developed all documentation for training including training materials and manuals that were used during workshops and training sessions. I am capable of cross training so each department has an understanding of what the other departments are responsible for. I am not afraid to speak in front of a crowd and have trained

Consultant (Project Manager) (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCAugust 28, 2018
CGI does not train well and the politics are horrible. Not much room for advancement and they will not take your career seriously. They very much have the "we have always done it this way so we will continue to do it this way" mentality. Every project in their portfolio was over budget and behind schedule.

A good company with some poor leaders
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COAugust 21, 2018
Everything about the mission and vision is great. The company culture is awesome and there are great professionals to get to work with.

The opportunities for advancement that are often spoke about have never really manifested. The only opportunities made available require relocation or extensive travel.

The free training offered via SkillPort is a great benefit and the company will reimburse certification costs provided they have a business need. The tuition reimbursement program is also very good.

Upper levels of management seem out of touch and too focused on shareholder interests. Middle management are a mixed bag. There are some who are interested in your growth and development and will actively promote you for new opportunities, while others seem only concerned with making themselves look good to the executive leadership.

All in all it's a good company if you are already an established professional with 10 plus years; but, if you are still building experience, it is a slog to get anywhere.
Pros
Benefits, company culture, varied work
Cons
out of touch leadership, profit over people
