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

Pros

The company is fairly flexible with work/life balance.
There are some great projects with great management that can make you really enjoy your daily work.

Cons

Experience with the company entirely relies on the project you land on, many projects are long term and movement between projects can be nonexistent at times.
The company is very slow to "cut the fat" and often those less than stellar employees cause a lot of extra work or headaches for the top performers that the company has kept around.
The company definitely feels like you're just another grunt in a large consulting firm without much feel for the rest of the company.
Company culture is almost nonexistent but they attempt to retain some socialization with a social club.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on compensating your top talent better and work to maintain more of your talent instead of losing them in the 2-3 year range only to repeat the new employee training cycle. This will lift up your overall work force morale and improve performance.
