    the management are full of lies and deception

    Collections Representative (Former Employee) Bedford, TX

    Proscollections experience is all I can say is a pro

    Consmanagement advised me that I qualify for fmla due to my mother having terminal cancer in the late stages pretending to care about me and my situation I got the paperwork in to them immediately and then was fired for taking my vacation time I'd earned on days that I had to tend to my mother for Dr's appointments which they informed me to do in the first place because they "cared" keep in mind I was #1 or #2 on the scorecard every month I received bonus (that were nearly a joke compared to the hundred of thousand dollars i collected) all but one month from the time I was hired because of the high amount of money I collected

    Advice to Senior Managementthe management are liars and fake we are just a joke to them

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Alot of talk but little action!

    Director (Former Employee) Fairfax, VA

    ProsYou work with some wonderful people each and every day - smart, talented and caring!

    ConsLeadership is lacking in every way
    VP Level managers or hold overs from AMS are overbearing, rude and not very smart. Account Managers or VP's that never leave their office and yet pretend to know what the client thinks - they give no credit to their teams and take commission

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider changing management or interviewing Director level folks to see what is truly going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A job, not a career

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsCGI is a great place to get that first 2 years of experience, or if you no longer care about your career and just want a pay check. I have found CGI mostly flexible on work/life balance.

    ConsThis company doesn't provide any opportunity for career, or skill, growth making it almost impossible to stay here long term. The pay is substandard and they try very hard to keep the salaries low for the employees. A big problem is the lack of employment stability, once your project is over they will bench you and give you 10 days to find another position. If you can't they lay you off. At CGI Federal if your not in Fairfax your treated very poorly, no input into projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating your employees as being easily acquired and disposed of.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
