  1. Good company, trying to be global

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Bright, talented people who want the company to succeed. Stable financial outlook and approach. Diversified portfolio allowing for cyclical trends.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be hard to manage. Lots of change without much change management or regard for impact due to varying business circumstances. Seems to be behind in terms of compensation strategy for sales people and executives.

    Advice to Management

    Global does not have to mean one size fits all. There are some really talented, dedicated employees who know the markets they work in - let them help define the business model that works best for their industry and location.

    I worked at CGI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was given pretty much every thing that I needed to get my job done

    Cons

    EXCEPT - the GOALS. I was told on a regular "We are NOT a staffing company" but yet the recruiters harassed people/candidates like they were a staffing company or a used car salesman. And there were quota's that were supposed to be hit every week that I was never made aware of. I am GLAD I am gone

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more transparent with your expectations.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location and free parking.

    Cons

    Supervisors micro managed employees. Some supervisors would make employees send emails to them when they arrived to work, go to lunch, return to lunch, and then leave. Low morale throughout company

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to get more involved and allow employee input.

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

    Pros

    Some projects allow working from home, share purchase plan, 401k, and usually friendly people to work with. Training is usually available and the ability to move to new projects.

    Cons

    the health insurance is lacking and sometimes you land on a bad project.

    Advice to Management

    Better health insurance would be more attractable for new employees and a employee retention..

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

    Pros

    Friendly people, number of paid holidays if you work for the federal side, unlimited sick time

    Cons

    Unlimited sick time - seems to translate to call in any time you want- making the workload fall on others and management is very very very slow in getting rid of slackers thanks to HR. The workload is excessive if you are an exempt employee- no work/life balance. Limited growth. Pay does not correlate to hours required.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they deserve, make bonuses, salaries performance and attendance based. And to agree with a previous post- keep your VP promotion emails to yourself- nobody cares. How about send out a performance and member evaluation six months after their promotion?
