    I worked at CGI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with. It was a friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going into work each morning. I felt the leadership team was great as well. They knew all of their employees on a first name basis and tried to make those personal connections.

    Cons

    One of the reasons I am leaving is that I felt I was not challenged enough at the job. As a new employee in the working world, the company offers a great opportunity for a good entry level position. However, after being there for so many years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good company for senior level.

    It is a good company for long term employees
    If you compromise in your appraisals, it will give exceptional flexibility like WFH for as many days as possible

    Cons

    Micro management is too much
    Client base is comparatively less when is compared similar sized MNCs

    Motto of CGI "Experience the commitment"

    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good platform for freshers for jump-starting their career. You will get exposure to all types of job profiles. Be it Development, Testing, Support or Administration.
    Comfortable working hours, general shift (9am - 6pm) , project based shift timings (11am - 8 pm, 12pm - 9pm, 1pm - 10pm, 7am - 4pm).

    Cons

    As the company motto goes "Experience the commitment", you realize that there are ppl around you with experience ranging from 8 years to 20 years. So my point is, how can one expect to have growth in his professional career (In terms of hike and promotion) when they are still there around. Saturation constraint of well-experienced employee is very less.
