    Pros

    working at CGI is great, just like any place that is great to work at the primary reason is the people. The work can be demanding at times but if you work hard and put in a solid effort you definitely be rewarded accordingly.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of pressure to perform and it can be stressful at times. You have to look at the big picture though and understand what they're trying to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. In any busy you can get far working with hard workers and solid attitudes, almost always these individuals will be result in some of your best employees

    Pros

    I currently work at CGI Communications (for almost a year now) and would recommend this company to anyone looking for a reputable, innovative, and fun place to build your career. The opportunity for advancement is unlike any other company I've worked for- I started as a sales associate then became a sales executive, and now I am an account manager for the marketing department. The work environment is fun and high energy, and the leadership team (CEO, Vice Presidents, etc.) truly care about the company and employees. How many companies have a CEO who holds a weekly morning meeting? I've worked for companies for years and never seen the CEO in person. This is a great place to work if you're looking for more than just a job to get by.

    Cons

    This is not the place to just come in and collect a paycheck. Hard work is definitely recognized, but so is laziness!

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

    Pros

    growth opportunities, great culture and work environment, accessibility to upper management, fun company events and activities, opportunity to gain experience in my desired field and move up quickly

    Cons

    if you're a lazy person or someone with a negative attitude, look elsewhere for employment

    Advice to Management

    CGI has continued to grow but still has the feel of a smaller, team oriented company. Since I've been here, CGI has opened up many new divisions and the employee base is growing rapidly...who wouldn't want to work in a growing organization?

    I have been working at CGI Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Results Driven; Cohesive Unit; Employee Opportunity is a focus of Management, Presidents and Vice-Presidents; Looked upon as a valued member of a team, not a number. Meetings every week are motivational, goals are well-planned and well-known, Looked upon by CEO as a colleague rather than an ancillary number in employment. Best sales training provided starting from basics; Production team is diligent and continually churns out great work.

    Cons

    Potential employees must be prepared to create and pursue goals and opportunities actively. Your path is not always clear-cut, some people look at this as a drawback, others embrace the atmosphere and challenge openly.

    Advice to Management

    More structured progression for employees looking for stepping stones to advancement.

    Create more management opportunities for senior employees to help grow the company from within.
