I have been working at CGI

Pros

- outstanding work/life balance to the point that it's easily feasible to take up a part-time job, attend grad classes, spend time with kids, etc.
- easy to take off work when necessary
- unlimited sick days
- team comraderie
- knowledgeable middle-management
- marketable starting salary
- relaxed and engaging employees

Cons

- terrible training (often you are thrown to the wolves in a rather antiquated or faulty subsytem and your deliverable is within the day, and the technical training they have doesn't apply to your client)
- much desired Subject Matter Expert Framework
- promotion determination is vague
- learning levels off after around 5-7 months

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- more socials, nothing 3 months in between
- more care and compensation of staff (keep the benefits marketable and competitive throughout an employees career life line, not just starting)
- make people want to work there (CGI has the right elements and management needs to make the most of it, encourage workers with challenging work and a set standard for promotions)
- develop client specific training

    Pros

    The colleagues are competent and hard-working! The company's upper-most leadership in Canada seem to really care about the employees. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    The local management is not attuned to the employees. Employees are not valued for their experience and are treated as indispensable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your turnover rates for employees. A serious brain drain is going on. Hiring inexperienced workers fresh out of of college to replace your more experienced employees will lead to increased turnover rates.

    Pros

    CGI takes care of employee's interests of work. Not too much pressured and a wonderful environment of work and co workers.

    Cons

    A little difficult in communication when you are working onsite with the client. The employee feels cutoff from the rest of the company while onsite

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is great to work with and provides good opportunity to individuals who have good skills and desire to enhance and learn more. Please find a way to maintain oneness amongst employees working onsite.
