    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are good opportunities to work on projects all over the US and internationally if desired. The company has good resources to leverage to help customers be successful. I had many good opportunities for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Organizational change can happen quickly if major contracts are lost, which is expected. When your project is over, it is each employees responsibility to find their next opportunity. CGI has almost 80,000 employees across the globe and an employee can very easily feel like a number on an org chart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more pro-active role in finding new opportunities for staff at the end of projects. Actively groom leaders within your organizations. As in any company, some leaders seem to be less truthful with their staff. I would recommend that top leadership promote more truthfulness and openness in the upper leadership ranks. Do more to prevent internal conflict between account teams and leverage resource teams (i.e. product and shared services).

    I worked at CGI

    Pros

    Process oriented company. Good requirement team. Keep up the words.

    Cons

    To much process, in-case if you want to switch the project. performance appraisal is just not based on the individual, its has a whole lot of factors(how the tower performance, how is the region performance if all the other factors has the good score then you can think of your salary hike)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance appraisal should be just based on the individual, it make more sense if the bonus is associated with tower performance, how is the region performance. Individual growth opportunity should also be consider. Leave carry forward.
