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

    Pros

    I felt like the company was very nice to work for in the time I was there. They offered training when I first started, and made the transition very easy.

    Cons

    my position required 100% travel which didn't turn out to be something that I wanted in the long wrong.

    I worked at CGI (Nevada) full-time

    Pros

    Costco membership was paid for by company. Whoop de doo!

    Cons

    If you like being treated like an idiot and don't mind mandatory overtime for weeks & weeks on end this place is for you. Training personnel treat you like your an idiot! Absolutely no teamwork.
    Very antiquated. If you don't fit in with the group and you can think for yourself lookout! If being threatened is ok with you you'll will be fine. Good luck!!

    Advice to Management

    Start manufacturing in this century not the late 70's early 80's. Don't be afraid of tooling advancements. Learn how to work smart & efficient not back in the 80's.
    Create an atmosphere of progress & fix your machines when they don't work properly. No wonder you need all the overtime.

    Pros

    Best job I ever had in the best working group.

    Cons

    Micro managers hated me. We had five sets of managers in the two years I was there. Last set did everything they could to make my working conditions hell.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the middle managers and pay people equitably. Stop messing with a good team because of petty personality differences.

    Pros

    Nothing to say about this company besides they give me a paycheck every two weeks.

    Cons

    To begin employment you are given 3 personal days to start however you don't start accumulating leave until after 1 year of working there. You pay full price for insurance since the company does not pay a portion of it. They do pay you health and welfare for opting out of insurance at a rate of 4$ an hour in addition to your hourly or salary. You must complete a million things online for training but the proram manager for whom I work for is an idiot and doesn't know what she does. This is the company the messed up the Obama Care website. I am looking for a new job ASAP now and I only been working for them for about 3-4 months.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Company is just stupid.

    Pros

    Great co that allows for employee input

    Cons

    Not salary competitive in the industry

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

    Pros

    - Decent benefits and pay
    - Can work from home after a while
    - If you're willing to work hard and more hours you will always find work

    Cons

    - Poor management that is short sighted. Consistently poor planning which inevitably leads to longer hours for lower levels workers. Repeat past mistakes again and again.
    - No training, development, on investing in employees.
    - Used to have great benefits, but have consistently cut back to "benchmark" bare bones benefits.
    - Minimal raises. You are basically hired for a role and you stay in that role with cost of living raises. Low performers who are just warm bodies to bill hours to clients get similar raises to high performers who are key to project success.

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in (spend money on) training and development for employees, encourage rotation of job duties to learn new skills, and enable employees to use new skills.
    - Follow basic project management principles when planning projects

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. There are some challenging projects available.

    Cons

    Many Senior Consultants are given the role of a Manager with a less pay. The promotion by Title does not necessarily give you a pay raise. You have to increase your leverage level to get a good raise.

    Pros

    Profile development is great when seeking a position!

    Cons

    Lack of Management involvment. Powerpoint overdose for "new hire" training. Training group with no up-to-date tools; they are using Microsoft Live Meeting as a Learning Management System. Will quickly threaten employee job if there is any sign of "innovation". Although they profess support of member Entrepreneurialship, they really use that a smoke screen for directly telling members not to add anything outside of linear Powerpoint (so called, decks) for delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Get a PMP or take on leadership skill courses offered by the CGI Skillport. Review and find a "true" LMS.

    Pros

    The stock purchase plan is great.

    Cons

    The organization has lost or forced out all the leadership that was actually focused on success, and now is being lead by people who consider success as being able to pass the blame onto others for failed projects, and stay under the radar. They talk about leadership courage, but they punish anyone who tries to be proactive.
    Turnover is crazy with anyone who has been with the company less than 3-4 years. So do yourself a favor, run away when they call you for an interview.

    Advice to Management

    It is a pyramid scheme, they buy new companies, strip them of their assets, and use that money to cover the losses from their failed projects, then buy the next company to start all over again. If you ever had to actually deliver something to be successful you would fail miserably.
