Current Employee - Consultant in San Diego, CA

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

Pros

None. The work environment and office culture is terrible, especially if you are an IT professional with prior experience. Management treats everyone as though you are incompetent.

Cons

This is the worst work environment that I have ever been in:
- work hours are ridiculous; expect 15 hr days
- expect to be micro-managed
- management is not "open door"
- several "clicks" exist

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is so much that needs to be fixed; employees are so distrustful of management.

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

    Pros

    Career development - tuition assistance, access to online training for professional certifications, certification fees are paid.
    Opportunity for promotion without applying; if you perform, you are automatically advanced.
    Profit sharing - stock purchases are matched to 3% without a waiting or vesting period.
    401K matching to a certain percentage. Great benefits packages.
    Annual bonuses eligible after a year. Not many companies now award bonuses to the people working in the trenches, so a very nice perk.

    Cons

    If CGI is the lead on a project, everything is good. If CGI is a sub-contractor on a project, the staff that is deployed on that assignment will need to adhere to the lead contractor's culture and it is not necessarily a good thing. Someone working as a subcontractor needs to just roll with the punches and adapt.

    They made life hell here.

    I worked at CGI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They allowed unlimited sick days

    Cons

    Our IT department had been outsource and the company that won the bid was CGI. It became apparent that this Canadian company did not like Americas. They would make comments about our "poor" work habits, and they did what they could to make our working situation such that we would quit.
