    Pros

    Great place to meet great Project Managers and learn from them.

    Cons

    Must wait 1 year to be able to apply for a direct job. HR and CGI Management don't communicate with employees - they just care that you are billable. Company's benefits are not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be a great service leader to the people who take care of your clients. Don't ignore employees' inquiries or brush them off.

  10. Terrible experience. Poor benefits. Incompetent management

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at CGI

    Pros

    A paycheck, but very little personal or professional satisfaction - and that is because of the management, not the work. I have very little good to say about them and thy pay me well into six figures. terrible company.

    Cons

    Management is untruthful on almost all levels. Only one-way communication from the top. Poor raises, no training. Constant turmoil in management. Very uneven reward system. Worst company I have worked for in 45 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending the idiotic notes about management changes at the top. You guys seem like idiots thinking anybody gives a darn about which VP reports to which VP, blah...we all laugh histerically when they come out. What nonsense.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CGI is a wonderful place to work; they give you the freedom to try new things, but do not let you fail. The flexibility and trust is rewarding and hard to find elsewhere. I work with a talented team of motivated and engaged people. All things being equal, I could easily see myself spending the rest of my career with CGI.

    Cons

    Salary is on the low end for my field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep that stock price climbing!
