    Very stable place to work, but not a lot of opportunity to excel.

    Pros

    They are a large company and many transfer options are available. They are involved in many industries so it's easy to find a project that you'll enjoy.

    Cons

    Getting a raise is like pulling teeth. The most effective way to get one is to get an offer from another place, which also creates animosity with your manager. There is a lot of redundant overhead, and the internal IT department is very slow and difficult to get a hold of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your largest resource. Losing them to other companies means a great loss of information. While money is not a motivator, it can be a demotivating when an employee realizes he can a lot more money somewhere else.

    Pros

    Fringe benefits are OK, work/life balance was also OK, at least for me.

    Cons

    I've seen the worst-demonstrated business practices applied across all functions in CGI. Complete lack of vision by upper management. Business in still managed as a SME. A lot of nepotism, career opportunities are definately not aligned with your performance. Poor communications, poor internal systems, poor decision making. Ambitious people should avoid this place, you won't be able to make a difference, even at VP level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk, invest in your systems and in your internal processes so that strategy is communicated and properly executed.
