    Flexible work hours, minimal upper communication

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsFlexible work hours and work from home options and great vacation/sick time. Share purchase plan is great. Most co-workers are good to work with.

    ConsPoor communication. So many divisions, it's hard to keep it all straight. Review process is a pain and raises are minimal. Not enough cross training in areas where it is needed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The experience has been pretty good so far.

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsThe pay is decent for a recent graduate. The people are really nice and really want you to learn. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth within the company. Having the opportunity to travel is nice.

    ConsThe benefits are great, but expensive. Depending on the projects that you land on, you could work LONG days. The pay could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your new hires more and there won't be such a high voluntary leave rate.

    Slow, but good experience

    Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsYou get experience in all different aspects of marketing. I did RFP and RFI's, PR work with their annual conference, as well as marketing research and social media work.

    ConsThe community you work with is very bureaucratic so you have to go through a lot of paperwork to just get the job and then in order to change anything in the way you do something you have to get your bosses permission as well as his boss and maybe even corporate

    Good company to work with

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsCGI is multinational company. As a big company you have ability to relocate in a place of your choice and a possibility to grow.

    ConsSalaries are not as good as some other companies in the industry

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be in order to attract more talented people, CGI need to increase its compensations to match the big players on the market!
