    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, yearly profit-sharing bonus and raise, challenging work. Every day was different. Never an UN-busy day!

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities for contact center specialists, unless you're willing to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Professionalism should be exercised at all times. There needs to be a fine line between management and employees it comes to friendship, to avoid the idea of favoritism amongst coworkers.
