I have been working at CGI

Pros

CGI provides lots of opportunity for diverse work assignments. They have a wide variety of projects and customers and are very open to moving employees around to different projects.

Cons

CGI does very little to encourage a work-life balance. They have caps on vacation and comp time, and ofter require very long periods of time where taking vacation and comp time are not possible. This almost certainly leads to lost benefits. There are no real policies or practices related to doing your job. While in some cases, this could lead to very efficient small groups, in most cases is leads to varying degrees of poor management which puts the burden for success on the lowest level employee who is unwilling to tolerate failure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management, please do one of two things: either appropriately compensate and reward the superstars that keep you projects running, or reduce the burden and improve middle management such that the superstars needn't be heroes.

    Pros

    The comaraderie at CGI is good; if you're interested in moving around on various projects, CGI has offices all over the US and world.

    Cons

    Very limited training opportunities; projects and products can become obsolete over time because of an obsession with the month bottom line; very little interest in innovation and keeping products competitive.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume to be a contractor at the Library of Congress.
    Good healthcare benefits from CGI
    Good exposure to other languages

    Cons

    Constantly belittled and criticized for not knowing information you were never given.
    Poor training.
    Belligerent manager.
    Underpaid.
    Micro mis-managed
    Pushed to produce statistics, but not quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the Project manager and assistant project manager. All they care about it statistics, not the quality of the work or respect for employees.
