Pros

Great colleagues and easy-to-work-for management. CGI promotes healthy work-life balance. Above average compensation. Diverse offerings allow for plenty of job variety, if you so choose. Nice stock purchase plan.

Cons

Very little emphasis on career development and personal growth. Huge company where you can sometimes feel like a number rather than a valued employee. Benefits are not stellar - vacation time was just reduced and the highly-touted profit sharing is fleeting and hard to come by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place more emphasis on individual employee development through training initiatives and evaluations that are not so routine and formulaic.

    Great team environment but focus is on "body shop" than consulting.

    I worked at CGI Group

    Pros

    The environment at CGI is very team oriented. The people there are great to work with and extremely helpful. There is a sense of "family" in some groups that you may not find at larger consulting firms.

    Cons

    CGI seems very focused on the staff augmentation type of projects. Basically "body shop" type of work. They should put more emphasis on IT consulting and management consulting services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a big divide between the management that sits in Montreal (CGI corporate) and the business units. There needs to be better integration between management in Montreal and the business units in the US. This probably stems from the fact that CGI has grown more through acquisition than organically. They should focus on fostering what they already have and grow organically.
