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

Pros

One project I worked on was very good with excellent people, great teamwork, and high morale even under extreme pressure. Everyone pulled together, good sharing of knowledge, and everyone worked hard to get the job done under extremely challenging conditions. Company worked hard to compensate for long hours by providing free lunches/dinners, and some extra compensation for long hours.

Cons

A second project was the exact reverse of the first project. Claimed that schedule was tight, but often times when someone completed a task the technical lead had no new task to give them. One of several signs of extreme disorganization. This caused low morale, and several people leaving within a short period of time. Seemed to be split by new members of the project versus people who had been on the project for quite some time. New members often were not tasked well, and were not given enough chance to understand the business functions. Technical lead bad-mouthed some new members to others on the project, which got back to new members making them feel unappreciated and not being given proper chance. Management seemed not to care about this as long as work was getting done.

    Pros

    Good people
    decent pay
    good work life balance

    Cons

    No growth
    micro managing managers
    lack of trust from upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your employees out by delegating items to upcoming employees. They need to learn and grow. Upper mgt would just take the tasks and not relinquish some responsibilities because of their lack in trust in people.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Work life balance

    Cons

    Once you get to the director level, it is very hard to move up to VP level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give opportunity to long term employee so they can contribute more to CGI and also recognize them by promoting them.
