Pros

Very smart people - leadership especially in Federal and State and Local

Good rewards - stock purchase is great

Proud to be part of CGI, history

Cons

CGI has yet to come to grips with the Commercial market. Need to invest and brand - likely need an acquisition

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out the commercial space - get in with some investment or get out.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great life-work balance, good benefits, good business model

    Cons

    Not exciting company, not for somebody who is looking for a dynamic company, too many positions offshore which keeps compensation low. If possible projects are stuffed with people from offshore locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are doing good job for shareholders (employees as well since benefits package is good) but it is not an attractive, dynamic company to work for. Company has low visibility in US. Too cost conscious ...

    It was great to get some experience but that is about it at the end of the day.

    I worked at CGI Group

    Pros

    There was a great learning experience and I appreciate the opportunity. But at the end of the day living in the DC metro area is very expensive. The ppl there are really nice and the managers are awesome!

    Cons

    There are more cons than pros. For one it seems like they are only interested in them keeping money in their pocket. The 401K matching is horrible and the benefits package sucks. I thnk I had to pay 200 dollars to go to the ER. Even the guy at the ER was like WOW, this is really expensive I never see this. The employees come LAST!! Its all about their profit. No holiday parties, no company parties at all. I understand that there are alot of ppl from different cultures but they can at least put up a freaking Christmas tree. They totally took my holiday spirit away. Its all about working. The PAY IS HORRIBLE!! Opportunity for growth is little to none. Im so glad my experience here is over!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well I know its a waste of my time but pay attention to the employees needs. They are not happy and u should want happy employees so they can make high profits right?? It could be a wonderful place to work if you ppl would show them that ur thankful from time to time. Stop being so greedy for every single dollar and invest in your employees. The way ur doing things is pathetic.
