Sync Outlook with iPhone/Gmail/iCloud. Difficulty level: IT-Managed PC.

I want to do something that seems like it should be straightforward. My company uses awful, awful, awful iOS email/calendar/contacts software called "Good For Enterprise." It syncs with Outlook over-the-air and displays the synced info in a separate (terrible) app. There is no syncing with native email/calendar apps in iOS. How can I get my Windows 7 Outlook calendar onto my iPhone?

On my iPhone, I have connected my Google account with the native apps so I can view my gmail, gCalender, gContacts, etc. This works great, and since it's all also synced through iCloud, I can view all the same information at home on my Mac. Great!
What I want is to get my Outlook Calendar into that mix as well. Apparently this used to be possible with Google Sync, but that was shut down a while ago. Is there any way to do this now? I tried the iCloud control panel that sort of syncs Outlook with iCloud, but the implementation is poor - you have to use a separate calendar in Outlook, and that won't work at my company because the default calendar has some secret sauce for syncing calendars company-wide. All I want to do is get the events from my iPhone or Google calendar into Outlook, and vice versa. Surely this is possible?
