    Pros

    Work from home (depending on project); Some good team members (depending on project and computer/analysis savvy); Unlimited sick leave

    Cons

    1) There are no raises -- especially those who start out at the higher end of the pay spectrum; 2) Benefits costs are not capped, so you will make less take-home pay three years after you start -- the highest amount you will ever make is in your first year; 3) In order for you to be promoted -- all you have to do is kiss the right backside -- but if you are a person of morals and have integrity, you will never be promoted, despite how great of a job you do; 4) There is much racism going on in the "off-shore" US sites; 5) There are no standards for documentation despite the company being ISO 9000; 6) The health benefits will cost you about $150/month and then you still have to pay out $3500 before the insurance company will pay for anything. So don't be fooled - the benefits are NOT beneficial to your health or well-being; 7) There are double standards for certain employees -- some are forced to do additional classwork (on their own time and at their own expense) but other teammates on the same contract are not required to do this; 8) CGI hires former client employees and then promotes them when they can't do the job (which is why they were let go from the client); 9) They hire many unskilled laborers to do jobs - but these jobs require a certain amount of skill, knowledge and ability -- and then expect you to teach them how to do the job; 10) No work-life balance as you will be assigned to projects where a 100 hour work week is the norm; 11) Your reviews will never be anything more than average -- while my client has raved about my work and said that there is no way for improvement, the boss will only give you a rating of 3 out of 5 (or "Meets Expectations").

    Advice to Management

    Encourage fair reviews -- especially for those who really do excel and impress the client; go back to standardizations of documentation; find a better health care plan so employees can get their health needs met; discourage any contract with a project time ceiling of 45 hours or greater; don't have double standards -- knock off the classes requirements for some or make it so that everyone has to do it; stop the racism; provide sufficient raises for those who perform -- and encourage raises as performance-based (not on popularity); do not hire the clients' rotten apples -- we do not need their bad attitudes and bad work ethic on our teams; hire people with skill sets who have done their job for at least 6 years; make sure bosses give fair and accurate reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
