    Lots of room for advancement in the company.

    Project Management Officer (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThere is a lot of opportunities to learn and grow in the company. The company pays fairly well. They love to rehire after graduation.

    ConsThe work can sometimes be really intensive. The training can sometimes cause a problem depending on how adequate the previous co-op student trained you.

    It's a good place to work, but when you are on bench then not a nice place to be.

    Developer Or Analyst (Current Employee)
    Halifax, NS (Canada)

    ProsCGI Group Pays for the certification if approved your member manager. Company matches the shares you purchase for CGI Group (up to 3% of ones income)

    ConsDon't pay good enough. Very less increment even when you perform good. Money minded company and less concerns about the career of members.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey can do better than this.

    ProsCo-workers are great. Office location ok

    ConsSalary increase and promotions are only for friends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare the profit with members. Salary policy is to be revised. 2 individuals doing the same job have significant difference in salary.

    Great Company

    Director of Consulting Services (Former Employee)

    ProsFocused, Highly skilled work force, very challenging and broad opportunities to work on and get excited about. Super company values, excellent opportunity to move up the ladder with good training opportunities. CGI 101 - The Company Kool Aide was pretty tasty! Director and VP training program was excellent.

    ConsHighly structured and rigid, very process oriented without much room for local autonomy. My boss was a very poor communicator and kept every bit of information to himself while demanding very detailed data and account information from everyone else.... control freak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your VP and Senior VP folks actually walk the company talk.

    Member-centric company

    Business Consultant (Current Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsGreat leadership at the high levels board, executives and business unit leaders steering the organization in the right direction. Have introduced initiatives that engage members involvement.

    ConsMid/Low-level management not to par with today's organizational behaviors. Favoritism and politics diminishing member motivation and initiatives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up with good work and member consultation. Train the "old time" managers to be able to sustain and grow the organization.

    Good People, Good Experience, Needs Competitive Wage

    Technical Support Center Representative (Current Employee)
    Regina, SK (Canada)

    Pros- Good Work Environment
    - Good Management
    - Great Values and Experience
    - I enjoy coming to work because of the group of colleagues I have

    Cons- Salaries are far below competitive(leading to constant position turn-overs)
    - Lack of career advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementCGI will continue to be a revolving door unless more is done to improve competitive salaries/wages and career advancement, improve on these areas and CGI will be a stand-alone in IT World-Wide.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
