Life is like a box of chocolates, but with CGI you always know what you're going to get

Consultant (Current Employee)
Fairfax, VA

I have been working at CGI Group

Pros- outstanding work/life balance to the point that it's easily feasible to take up a part-time job, attend grad classes, spend time with kids, etc.
- easy to take off work when necessary
- unlimited sick days
- team comraderie
- knowledgeable middle-management
- marketable starting salary
- relaxed and engaging employees

Cons- terrible training (often you are thrown to the wolves in a rather antiquated or faulty subsytem and your deliverable is within the day, and the technical training they have doesn't apply to your client)
- much desired Subject Matter Expert Framework
- promotion determination is vague
- learning levels off after around 5-7 months

Advice to Senior Management- more socials, nothing 3 months in between
- more care and compensation of staff (keep the benefits marketable and competitive throughout an employees career life line, not just starting)
- make people want to work there (CGI has the right elements and management needs to make the most of it, encourage workers with challenging work and a set standard for promotions)
- develop client specific training

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
