CGI has some promise for new college hires, but veterans should stay away

I worked at CGI Group

Pros

The ESSP is very good at 100% match

Cons

Low pay, slow promotion schedule, very little in the way of positive feedback was the standard all four years I worked at the company. I shouldn't need to fight with management to get a raise that beats inflation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest they work on lowering their costs in other ways than not giving their employees competitive raises.

    Pros

    Flex and comp time, friendly people, colleagial environment, work hours are not too bad, generous vacation policy, nice location. Reasonable salary at very manageable hours. Good compensation package (dental, medical). Flexible cultur e.

    Cons

    lack of career path, most clients are in Government, need to expand to other commercial sectors such as financial services, tele com, health care, transportation. Sell themselves as 'business' consulting but in reality they only do IT consulting. Lack of positioning agains competitors such as accenture or kpmg. Jobs sometimes are not challenging. Management lack of focus on how to position itself as a value added partner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be strategic. Expand to other industries that are less dependent on the government sector

    Pros

    some of the co-workers. It depends on what office you work in. Canadian employees are treated great, the US employees, not so much.

    Cons

    Unless you want to be stuck outsourcing your entire life, forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop looking for the $50 million contract, and get your foot in the door with people at $500K - $2M. Then, if you prove yourself, maybe you'll land that bigger contract.
