Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Fairfax, VA

I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Relatively stress-free projects, decent bonuses, good benefits

Cons

Lack of innovation
Lack of client interaction (most project teams based away from clients)
Not a true consulting firm (selling code to clients rather than solving problems with their processes/organization)
Poor raises
Lack of growth opportunities for mid-level professionals
Staff crammed into small cubes/spaces to fit more people
Upper management generally not willing to invest in staff seeking further education/certifications

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give staff clear paths for advancement... consider an "up or out" approach to avoid stagnation

Doesn't Recommend

Approves of CEO
