what has worked in the past may not be appropriate in the future; need to act like a global company not a federation of regional tribes

    Know your limits and stick to them, because CGI will certainly push them....

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth abound! Management is very good about allowing staff to carve their own path and encourage researching new ways of doing things...

    Cons

    There is a high amount of "entitlement" in the office I work at. People have obtained positions based on "who" they know when their skill does not support that position. It is very easy to lose focus on the fact that CGI does actually support a work/life balance. They will happily work you like a dog, but don't flinch if you say no.

    Advice to Management

    Good staff keep the good clients happy. If you want to keep your best clients and grow your business with them, make sure that you are giving the staff that work with them the ability and the tools to work effectively. Focus more on quality and less on quantity.
