    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions. You sometimes travel, sometimes work from home, and sometimes both. Very flexible in where you work from.

    Cons

    Does not pay what you are worth. Other companies will probably pay more for you. Top talent is lost because they are never recognized within the company. Even if you are recognized no incentives are given to talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to fight for the employees that you represent. Dont think of them as they are your competition instead management needs to steer them into the right direction.

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

    Pros

    High visibility projects using cutting edge technology which push the envelope of their functionality.

    Cons

    Company focuses too much on account management and not project management. Those who win the contract are not always the right people to run the project.

    Advice to Management

    Understand there is a big difference between account management and project management. Use experienced program/project managers to run the project and grow it organically...use account managers to run the business unit account and focus on new project business development. Use project lessons learned to benefit future projects. Value individual member contributions to the big picture.
