    I worked at CGI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working for the CGI for over 10 years as senior consultant. Company has 40+ years of success and well known across the Globe.
    Good chance to learn many things, if you work hard and bring value, you will be promoted and receive salary increase.

    Cons

    As with any Consulting company, work assignments could be short or long. Projects may last few weeks or few years. Each end of year Company doing big cleanup of workforce, hundreds employees meet New Year holidays in "unemployed" status, no matter if you good or bad worker.

    Advice to Management

    Too many Canadian jobs go offshore.
    Do not be greedy, give Canadians chance.
