    I worked at CGI (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - I guess it depends on which sector you work in but my sector was/is amazing.
    - Unlimited sick days
    - lots of time off that rolls over if you do not use
    - got laid off after 6 years and severance package is great
    - ample time to look for a new position while still working at CGI
    - work from home
    - Understanding boss
    -

    Cons

    - I was an EA and I never got to see co-workers much
    - Little if any travel involved to meet other co-workers
    - no one works in the office in this location
    - More interaction

    Advice to Management

    None. I was very happy with my time at CGI

    Pros

    Great benefits, love Shared purchase plan

    Cons

    Long work hours, not enough jobs currently being offered, shows a lot of favoritism towards certain people. Lots of gossip and nothing is kept private. No sick days offered.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited sick leave - but high accountability
    Flexible PTO
    Smart coworkers
    Supportive environment
    With long term contracts and large clients, little need for travel if you don't want to
    Self-directed career growth
    Great social club organization - 3-4 events per year, all paid for with a small payroll deduction
    Good Corporate Social Responsibilty - several efforts throughout the year to provide for the underserved (habitat for humanity, soup kitchen, Alzheimer's Walk, etc)
    Very strong senior management - not willing to sell out and wants to establish a long-standing company.
    Stock purchase plan is great, and employees are encouraged as members to have input into corporate strategy.
    Diverse workplace.

    Cons

    Easy to get too much work handed to you if you don't manage your own boundaries.
    Career growth is a double-edged sword. You are in charge of getting what you want. Management is very supportive, but will not come to you necessarily with advancement opportunities on a silver platter.
    Some pay disparity between men and women.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked primarily across Canada and the people were magnificent.

    Cons

    Senior management, especially out of Montreal, was clubby and clueless.

    Advice to Management

    Get global and stop acting like a Quebec boys club.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, great pay

    Cons

    No training, lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees, and make sure decisions are communicated with a clear purpose and goal. Need to focus on training your employees instead of playing catch-up when projects fail (due to lack of training).

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

    Pros

    I've worked at CGI for 14 years. I have been treated fairly, always had work and have been paid well. I enjoy my co-workers. Our BU has excellent leadership. My experience is the company lives up to its values.

    Cons

    Your mileage may vary...I think it depends a lot on where you are working, what sector you are working in and what BU who your managers are, etc. CGI is a large company.
    Medical Benefits - only the High Deductible with an HSA is available. However, I understand this is what we'll be seeing more of in the future...Consumer Driven Health Plans.

    Advice to Management

    Consider offering a different medical package even it is more costly. People like a choice and some may want to pay for a PPO.

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

    Pros

    CGI is a large company with a small company feel, despite its 80k employees, 11B US in revenue, and presence in 42 countries. CGI provides a diverse opportunity across many industries. At its core, CGI's focus on corporate membership, its people, and corporate culture are what keeps me here, and loyal to the company.

    Cons

    Compensation is average, with bonus structures relatively modest. Benefits are good, but closely aligned to the ACA.
