    I have been working at CGI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart, intelligent, coworkers who work together as a team. Company listens to its employees and takes action when ideas for improvements are voiced by the employees. Very military friendly.

    Cons

    Center of excellence work locations are not as nice as other corporate offices and salary is not as high in these areas. More entry level jobs available at the centers of excellence and not may experienced opportunities available.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Consultant in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    -Challenging projects at good clients (sometimes)
    -Decent starting pay
    -Good healthcare benefits until 2014 and decent amount of vacation
    -the stock matching of 3% is nice. Not sure if that will continue in 2014.

    Cons

    -Does not value employees at all. CGI acts like a contracting firm. As long as you are pulling income for the company, they are not concerned about your career growth or if you even want to be at that project.
    -3 week bench policy and then you will need to find employment elsewhere
    -2014 health insurance plans do not pay for anything (including PCP visits) until you meet the deductible
    -Promotions are on the basis of internal favoritism, so that even if the client is consistently providing stellar feedback on your performance and giving you increasing levels of responsibility, CGI will find ways to deny your a promotion or a raise.
    -Bonuses & raises are based on a division performance. Divisions are done geographically, so you could have a lot of low margin performers, while your projects are some of the most profitable and as a result get little or no raise/bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people or we will leave. Stop cutting costs at the expense of the employee. You can no longer dream of competing with IBM, Accenture, or any of the major consulting firms. When your good people go, you will no longer maintain the brand and loose major clients if you no longer have good people to send to clients.
