Current Employee - Director in Fairfax, VA

I have been working at CGI Group full-time

Pros

Nothing much to say here. Infighting, poor management, favortism and nepotism, I could go on and on and on..

Cons

Worst place I have ever worked in an almost 40 year working career. Cultural misalignment between US and French Canadian entities-- socialistic philosophies DO NOT work in the US. VERY poor leadership- the fish sticks from the head down. Extremely bad decision to buy a large, failing European company. Can't wait to leave!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am beyond words. They would not listen anyway.

    I have been working at CGI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. The work environment and office culture is terrible, especially if you are an IT professional with prior experience. Management treats everyone as though you are incompetent.

    Cons

    This is the worst work environment that I have ever been in:
    - work hours are ridiculous; expect 15 hr days
    - expect to be micro-managed
    - management is not "open door"
    - several "clicks" exist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is so much that needs to be fixed; employees are so distrustful of management.

    I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They were a really good company until they started looking for a buyer.
    Good pay raises for the first two years. One at 6 months and one at the first year mark.

    Cons

    The last 2 years before CGI bought them they started messing with our annual reviews and delaying promotions and pay raises.
    They were very anti-military. Constantly harrasing me about being gone for the military.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully they changed the culture of the work place. If you did not work in or around DC, they never wanted to hear from you.
