CGI has some promise for new college hires, but veterans should stay away

Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The ESSP is very good at 100% match

Cons

Low pay, slow promotion schedule, very little in the way of positive feedback was the standard all four years I worked at the company. I shouldn't need to fight with management to get a raise that beats inflation.

Advice to Management

I would suggest they work on lowering their costs in other ways than not giving their employees competitive raises.

    Pros

    Flex and comp time, friendly people, colleagial environment, work hours are not too bad, generous vacation policy, nice location. Reasonable salary at very manageable hours. Good compensation package (dental, medical). Flexible cultur e.

    Cons

    lack of career path, most clients are in Government, need to expand to other commercial sectors such as financial services, tele com, health care, transportation. Sell themselves as 'business' consulting but in reality they only do IT consulting. Lack of positioning agains competitors such as accenture or kpmg. Jobs sometimes are not challenging. Management lack of focus on how to position itself as a value added partner.

    Advice to Management

    Be strategic. Expand to other industries that are less dependent on the government sector

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very good people in most cases. Traveling is fun for the first 2 years. Flexible in work locations. Health and dental benefits are good just like most companies out there. Company matches stock options up to a certain percentage. Salary is only good out of college.

    Cons

    Salary reviews are worthless since you will only get the minimum which is very embarrassing to even talk about. Bonus are very rare and if you ever get one its not worth mentioning. Hard work is only rewarded in words. Management needs to fight more for the well being of there employees. Traveling becomes a pain.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to fulfill there promises. Reward hard work with better bonus's and salaries.
