    I worked at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited sick leave and that's about it. They don't care if you work 24/7 as long as they benefit. Could care less about a human being.

    Cons

    All about business unit profit. Don't care about employees

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

    Pros

    There is huge potential for the personal growth within CGI. Management usually pays lot of attention towards personal growth as it falls under their one of the pillars - Member, Client and Stakeholder.

    Definitely a company to look forward if you want to be associated for a long period.

    Share Purchase Plan of the company adds value to the member.

    Cons

    The salary package usually offered is not up to the par.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and work from home options and great vacation/sick time. Share purchase plan is great. Most co-workers are good to work with.

    Cons

    Poor communication. So many divisions, it's hard to keep it all straight. Review process is a pain and raises are minimal. Not enough cross training in areas where it is needed.
