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

    Pros

    - Personal life - work balance

    Cons

    - if you don't have project, even if you are full time they sack you out in 3 weeks
    - managers are least bothered. I personally had experience this year that manager asked to ding the appraisal without any formal discussion

    I worked at CGI

    Pros

    Ability to work from home was a bonus.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor raises. High turnover with technical resources and Senior Management. Lack of support by Senior Managers with client issues. With long working hours difficult to take advantage of training programs. Communications between functional teams and Senior Management is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest taking a closer looked at middle management. If teams are not performing as expected, could it be because of the lack of clear direction and communication breakdown.

    I have been working at CGI

    Pros

    You can have work life balance if you can say the word no. And you can work from home and have flexible hours. I enjoy working my coworkers.

    Cons

    I work for company that value there employee and I work for company the pretend to value there employee. Currently CGI Federal does neither. You are there to do a job and that is it. The company is disorganized and has very little focus. It is not uncommon for you to find out something needs done days before it is due. Also many of the PM’s are scared to talk with the client so if you have any question they will not be answered. CGI Federal does a very poor job of providing training and they are technical weak. Expect very few opportunities for career growth, and if you do get a promotion company is notorious for giving them without accompanying raises. I have seen it happen. Any salary increase will be rather paltry. The bonus structure seems very random so do not expect bonuses. The health benefits have deteriorated in the past several years.

    I have been working at CGI

    Pros

    Gained a lot of technical and functional skills. Had the opportunity to work on a fast paced application development project.

    Cons

    CGI pays under market value, especially for a new college hires. Also, the health benefits are really bad. Most people I know take the benefits from their parents or spouse.

  11. Good starter company, don't stay longer than a few years
