Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and work from home options and great vacation/sick time. Share purchase plan is great. Most co-workers are good to work with.

    Cons

    Poor communication. So many divisions, it's hard to keep it all straight. Review process is a pain and raises are minimal. Not enough cross training in areas where it is needed.
