    I worked at CGI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very nice people, respecting everyone. Good salary, benefits. Autonomy. No micromanagement. I learned a lot from the position and from people with whom I worked. The best part of working with CGI was that you were 'entrusted' with a lot of tasks and managers rarely micromanaged you. It really made you work hard as if they trust you then you naturally feel you should do an excellent job.

    Cons

    nothing really serious. Like most other companies, they too should give higher raises!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up how you respect your employees.

    Pros

    Good folks to work with. Management / Team members were helpful and made work not feel like work.
    Corporate environment balances work and personal life very well.
    Goals are reasonable and well thought out for optimum performance.
    Career growth was emphasized.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. Just regular nit-picking stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the balance between office and personal life of employees. This really helped me want to give 100% to my work.

    I have been working at CGI

    Pros

    Great support network; offers plenty of opportunity for personal growth and training, solid benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of paid time off but flexible enough to be able to take care of personal things. I did work independently so sometimes I did feel a little left out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a little bit more paid time off. Take into account time zone differences.
