    I have been working at CGI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent for a recent graduate. The people are really nice and really want you to learn. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth within the company. Having the opportunity to travel is nice.

    Cons

    The benefits are great, but expensive. Depending on the projects that you land on, you could work LONG days. The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your new hires more and there won't be such a high voluntary leave rate.


  2. Great place for new college grads.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They recruit heavily out of colleges and have a very young talent base. Many projects are setup to take many fresh college grads each year. They do a good job of mentoring and assimilating people into the workforce. The work/life balance is good and once you've been working there a few years you often have opportunities that most people in that experience range wouldn't, such as managing others (often new college hires). From my experience annual raises were above average.

    Cons

    You're often at their disposal in terms of assignments and work locations. In the first few years many people change projects. A con of having younger leads/managers is often people who have no idea how to effectively manage get placed in those positions. The company's structure is very flat and vague. You start as a Consultant and then don't see a title change to Sr. Consultant until the 5 year mark. This can make it hard to tell 'where you're at' career wise.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more employee input on project assignment and location. If someone isn't happy with that, they probably are going to end up asking for a change or worse leaving the company.
