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

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package
    Flexible work environment
    Committed to work/life balance
    Excellent stock ownership plan

    Cons

    Limited opportunity in Atlanta with regard to client projects (Mostly staff augmentation)
    Limited commitment to career growth
    Minimal employee engagement in CGI teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each CGI VP should be accountable for establishing new client relationships above and beyond the status quo of existing clients in order to keep employees motivated. Also, each CGI office manager/VP should promote more teamwork that would further encourage employees to have a sense of belonging to CGI rather than their client. Employees need to feel like they don't just work for a "body shop."

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay. My manager is great and really cares about me as an employee. I feel valued. I am a full-time employee of CGI working for another company, which lets me have every other Friday off and work from home once a week. CGI doesn't mind at all, just as long as I'm happy and my client I'm working for is happy. There's also great communication from upper management about what's going on in the company and what they're working toward next.

    Cons

    Last year the healthcare was wonderful, but they changed what they offer for 2014 and I was extremely unhappy. They also don't match much of anything toward retirement. I also don't see much room for growth/other opportunities within the company, but that may be subjective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication, it's appreciated. The benefits to employees need attention, though.
