I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

strong focus on staff development and lots of opportunities for people who want to advance to dig in and do so...but you have to work for it.

Cons

Some senior leaders are burned out, cynical and far beyond their skill sets. CGI Federal's business is to sell the skills and time of it's staff; i.e. the people are truly the asset. I think some senior leaders forget that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior leadership (VP on up) needs to be kept in check. And, never sell what you have not properly prepared yourself to deliver (i.e. FFM). I was once told not to confuse sales with delivery. The only people who say that are the arrogant tools who then turn around and tell you to get it done.

    I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company to work for, they cared about their consultants. The assignments were challenging and I learned a lot.

    Cons

    When the local workload decreased, out of area consulting work was tough to obtain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting from within the company's local talent! Senior consultants that moved to account managers were terrific; whereas, managers hired from outside the company or local area were not always 100% effective.

    I have been working at CGI Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They try pretty hard to create a positive workplace attitude and culture, and offer a fair number of extras throughout the year to try to connect with individual worksites.

    Cons

    Company is so big, individual job sites can often feel like an afterthought. Communication to employees can sometimes all but say you were not thought of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for the lower levels of employees to advance.
