Approves of CEO

I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Employee friendliness, work life balance.

Cons

Limited growth opportunities, too many HR employees for very few employees (highest i have seen in my career), very bad with tools and automation of internal processes, most of these tools are not integrated and with logica acquisition the situation has gotten worse.

Advice to Management

please invest in tools to streamline our processes, there is limited India-specific plans and activities, no branding (people hardly know us).

    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allowed to work from home Participate in Share Purchase Plan (stocks have been doing very well as company is keeping overhead costs low and purchasing global companies around the world)

    Cons

    They are presently laying off a lot of employees to send jobs to India to lower labor costs for Support Center. For Projects in North America; they hire recently university graduates (no experience necessary) to pay lower salaries They no longer pay/compensate for overtime. Due to the layoffs, many are working 2-3 projects at a time, working from 55-70 hours a week with no compensation. In terms of corporate values, the corporation wants the employees to value integrity, however it does not practice it itself (in terms of the company towards client).
