    Bad management and even worse internal procedures. Average salary and benefits for a contracting company.

    I worked at GFI Informatique full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - average salary and benefits - good CE (but it couldn't be the case anymore since a few months) - good language courses in the package

    Cons

    - Very bad experience with holidays and internal procedures: the rules (I unfortunately discovered late) say "90+ days notice for standard leaves, 7+ days notice for RTT days and up to 30 days after the request to get a positive or negative feedback". You can't basically get days off the first year without a "proper justification". - For a 5 days leave I had to wait 3 weeks for a feedback... - I also got rejected (after 40 days!) 8 days of unpaid leave for unofficial healthcare reasons, even though I had the approval of the client, I provided a plan of using them in the following 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    - improve day by day communication with employees - consider relaxing the 90+ days notice constraint for holidays - consider allowing the use of holidays as soon as they are accumulated, without any sort of "justification" - consider discussing with employees before rejecting few unpaid leaves if justified and approved by the client

    Pros

    C'est une entreprise très conservatrice avec des gens très sympathiques et parfois, des projets intéressants. Excellent endroit si vous ne voulez pas vous investir trop dans votre travail.

    It is a very conservative company with sympathetic people and sometimes, some interesting projects. Great place if you don't want too invest too much in your day work.

    Cons

    Le travail est fait avec une attitude très conservatrice. Les décisions ne sont prises que quand le risque a disparu et qu'il est presque toujours trop tard. Les projets sont gâchés par des gens incompétents qui sont en charge.

    The business is done with a very conservative attitude. Decisions are taken only when the risk has disappeared, that is almost always too late. The great projects are spoiled by incompetent people that are in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Le management devrait prendre un meilleur soin de ses employés, et récompenser en fonction des efforts, sans se limiter aux vendeurs

    The management should take a greater care of the employees, and truely reward according to the effort, not only the sales persons.

    Pros

    La paye qui arrive à date fixe.

    Cons

    Des financiers qui dirigent une entreprise ne pensent qu'à une chose: comment se remplir les poches. Les clients sont les principaux lésés dans cette vision à très court terme. On oublie les augmentations, les primes et autres, tout part chez les actionnaires.

    I have been working at GFI Informatique full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    une mutuelle correcte, des syndicats dynamiques et force de propositions,

    Cons

    salaires peu attractifs, on se contente du minima Syntec, Pas de dialpgue sociale ou siinon unilatérale, participations aux bénéfices reduites au minima, mais les augmentations et actions gratuites pour le comex garantis.

    Advice to Management

    mieux répartir les fruits des éfforts consentis par le plus grand nombre, revoir le management des DO, abandonner le mode de gestion n'appartenant pas à la culture de notre pays et continent, replacer le salarié (sa formation pour une meilleur compétence) et ses clients aux centre de l'activité au lieu de se disperser dans des opérations d'achats/reventes qui n'est pas notre métier.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    wide variety of work, professional office, respectful staff, modern office, good base salary, stable middle management. modern equipment, laptops, cell phones, unimpeeded internet access, easy access to transit, close to post secondary institutions, some educational assistance

    Cons

    complex work, lack of understanding of work complexity by senior management, poor benefits, language barrier, frequent changes in ownership, long work hours, short vacation time, time sheets, senior management makes workers feel that they are machines there to do a job not as individuals with individual needs and concerns. There are few perks for line staff, no subsidy of sports tickets, no arts programme, maternity limited to what is required by government

    Advice to Management

    give all the employees a sense of ownership, by actually giving them ownership, either directly, or via profit sharing.

    Pros

    A lot of varied work. I can't complain about repetition after 3+ years.

    Cons

    Depends on the projects and clients. It wouldn't surprise me they put you in underestimated projects where in the end you'll be working endless hours including weekends with a ridiculous compensation for it.

    Advice to Management

    Estipulate real compensations for those who give up their personal life trying to push the projects forward.

    Pros

    - They will pay training when needed - You might have the chance to stay at home doing nothing because they don't have any project, but will be paid

    Cons

    - Salary is low - Client is always right, don't have much to say about the project you are working on
