Current Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC

I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Paycheck, it is a job. Good people to work with and a decent environment. Upward mobility if you are willing to work 60+ hours a week.

Cons

Benefits are poor, each year more benefits are taken away or reduced. Looks good on the outside, hey you get to purchase Vision Care - go to use it and find out the benefit is very limited. Health benefit reduced every year and is now terrible - pay $$$$ for catastrophic coverage only. Balance of the reward system goes to Management and Shareholders on the back of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

US Division is disconnected from Canada - US managements needs to attract and retain better talent by fighting for better employee compensation. Weed out management that does not contribute TOO MANY Layers! Internal Departments that SHOULD be responsive to employees are terrible. Try and get any issue resolved in 4-6 months with HR, IT - not going to happen! Established a coporate culture - it is about me. Management needs to listen to employees - they haven't for years and employees are stopping trying to help the company.

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

    Pros

    Great medical and vacation allowances.

    Cons

    Unethical hiring practices, inequality and off balanced pay scale. The absolute worse management people I have every worked with/for. Petty bickering and grudges held by Management personal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to the 'little' things. They will be your undoing. There is a reason CGI is loosing so many contracts, being fined by State Attorney Generals, etc., etc.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work isn't too difficult.

    Cons

    I have worked for this company for over 10 years. Ever since my original company (Stanley Associates Inc.) was acquired by CGI Federal, I have watched this company self destruct. Since the acquisition the following benefits have either been reduced or discontinued:
    - annual raise reduced (no longer keep up with inflation or cost of living)
    - vacation time reduced by 5 days per year
    - health club reimbursement discontinued
    - home computer reimbursement discontinued
    - complimentary refreshments discontinued
    - employee appreciation events vanished
    - etc., etc., etc...

    This company is all about the bottom dollar, the employees are now left with a seat somewhere in the back. One only has to look at the healthcare.gov debacle to really see where the priorities lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue to chase the almighty dollar while pushing your employees (or members as you like to call us) to the background, you will soon find yourself without the talent necessary to make this company a success. You must realize that winning contracts is only half of the battle! It is the people who execute those contracts that make this company a success!!! If you don't take care of your employees, they will soon go find another company that will.
