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

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

    Flexibility in assignments and workplace location. A lot of different domains one can work in.

    Cons

    Little or no work life balance as with almost all consulting firms. The travel can also get to you after a while. So, know that you may travel up to 100 percent for some assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee retirement options and benefits. Make available better placement options for those consultants who cannot be deployed internally.

    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.
