    I worked at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, SPP sharing and insurance.

    Cons

    Management and on the job training. Projects are short and long term ones have senior employees with a non-team approach. Current employees do no look out for new hires and aid them with the project. Everyone must learn on their own and no one looks out for the other so they grow as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Have on the job training for new hires and current employees.

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

    Pros

    They dont really think that highly of you, thus you dont get that much work. Simple work, nothing hard, always give you instructions on what to do. Thus, you have even more time to just do whatever you want since nothing is hard. Good benefits for people with families

    Cons

    no career growth opportunities. From seeing the environment here, this is a place you want to be where you only care about making money and supporting a family. For younger people like myself, be prepared to use 10 year old technology, and others which make you laugh when your manager says there are a lot of career growth opportunities. Salary was low, but after being here for a bit, understandable why. Manager has constantly asked me to stay after work hours to work, has asked me to stay on weekends every now and then, as well as told me to eat as little as possible as time is valuable. With literally barely any work given, why on earth do I need to put in all of those extra hours? When he asked me to come in on the weekend, he told me yeah you'll probably just be sitting on your computer doing nothing always but i still want you to come in. For the love of all that is good, stay away and pray for me that I can find a job soon so I can shove a big fat resignation letter with "I quit" in a font size of 72.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to get ahead of the curve and be up to date/at least knowledgeable about newer technologies. I don't see how this company will last in the future. Once all of the older people die, most of the younger people would probably not come to work at CGI especially if they were in my shoes currently. Also, please try to give your new grads more challenging work so they can learn more and not just sit around doing nothing, though if I had a family to take care of, I would definitely want to continue for the sake of money. Also, try to give your employees a better work life balance. I know most of the older employees don't really care since they like taking the money for their families, but from the outside, it looks really toxic.
