    Pros

    Progressive company with emphasis on employees as members, 80%+ are involved in the share purchase plan.

    Cons

    At times, the manager lacks a vision for workforce development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more creativity and offer regular time for team meetings to brainstorm and allow some ideas an opportunity to takeoff and see how they do in the real world.

    Pros

    The people at CGI are great. Those that I've worked with have been very easy to get along and work with. Member managers have been attentive when necessary and willing to provide good advice. The benefits are also great, especially the Share Purchase Plan.

    Cons

    The bench policy is unreasonable. Once a project is over, employees have 3 weeks to find a new project, or they are separated from the company. The system for find a new position is quite flawed; employees are expected to use an often out of date list of openings to find a new project as well as their own network. Communication from management has gotten better recently, but it's still pretty poor. Employees rarely find out about upcoming projects, so planning ahead is rather difficult. Salary increases are another point of concern. Salary reviews come yearly, but the increments are very small - these are said to be performance based but that does not seem to be accurate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication to lower level employees about what is going on with new business. The bench policy is not acceptable with the given resources. Improving the resources for employees to find new positions would go a long way in improving satisfaction.
