    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, awesome learning experience, so much room for growth

    Cons

    Sometimes busy work that doesn't always push u to expand your thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pawn off work that you don't want to do. Give the associates more responsibility to showcase their knowledge and ability to learn and succeed

    I worked at CGI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Rebounded from the healthcare.gov debacle fairly well.

    Cons

    Exclusively hires people from India, I was on a project with 83 people and 80 were from India. Unless you are from India don't count on getting invited to the group lunches or even understanding what is being talked about because, yes, they exclusively speak their own language.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity rocks, embrace it!

    Pros

    Work from home. Great co workers. Share purchase plan.

    Cons

    Constant worry about the 'bench'. Not enough communication relevant to your division of the company. The dreaded annual tours. Increase in medical insurance premium every year.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are good opportunities to work on projects all over the US and internationally if desired. The company has good resources to leverage to help customers be successful. I had many good opportunities for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Organizational change can happen quickly if major contracts are lost, which is expected. When your project is over, it is each employees responsibility to find their next opportunity. CGI has almost 80,000 employees across the globe and an employee can very easily feel like a number on an org chart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more pro-active role in finding new opportunities for staff at the end of projects. Actively groom leaders within your organizations. As in any company, some leaders seem to be less truthful with their staff. I would recommend that top leadership promote more truthfulness and openness in the upper leadership ranks. Do more to prevent internal conflict between account teams and leverage resource teams (i.e. product and shared services).
