    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 Management

    Good company for senior level.

    Pros

    This is about CGI India. I don't know about other CGI locations.. may be good or worse. God knows ! I don't have much to write here in pros section. They have a work from home policy, yes. Apart from that some people are good, that is their natural goodness. CGI, India as such doesn't promote any goodness!

    Cons

    CGI, India like many in the business focuses on exploitation of India's cheap labor. It is not a technology company, It is just a back office to get work done for cheap. So advice for technical people is to be awa => Despite all the talk and emphasis on CGI values, many managers continue to remain unreasonably dictatorial. Their ego is inversely proportional to their understanding of technology, The former being more off-course. Such people are the reason for demise of many organisations, they keep filling their own pockets overlooking the majority of workforce. => Company and specially Indian managers seems to be totally aloof of changes in worldwide IT industry trends whether it be technology, methodologies or delivery models. Things like scrum and agile are being used just in name and certainly not in true manner. => Most of the work on offer is mere maintenance or support work. So after a certain level it is really challenging for a techie to build his / her career here. After say ten years this company doesn't offer much to a technical person. => There is less "raw" work here. Architectural or design aspect of work are already done when it arrives here. This company like many many other Indian IT firms treat their technical work force as cheap labor to make maximum cut out of sheer exploitation for themselves. => Rate of attrition is quite high due to above reasons and company also doesn't seem to be bothered. They dupe clients, because maintaining quality is challenging where average retention rate is just 2 -3 years.

    Advice to Management

    None .. hopeless inefficient and cheap people cannot be changed, so no point in giving advice. All worthy people should resign from this company and the problem will be solved automatically. Yes !
