    Pros

    CGI offers many good benefits, like matching 401K and profit sharing. Also, they have kept the healthcare costs low, which has been a big help. It is a good place to start and receive a government clearance.

    Cons

    The turnover where I am is very high due to low pay and the amount of leave you accrue is very low compared to other private section positions. There are no annual increases.

    Advice to Management

    Higher starting pay and raises would attrack and retain a better qualified worker and improve over all quality.

    I worked at CGI (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked as an independant consultant for CGI. High perdiem.

    Cons

    In the 24 months of the contract I was renumerated on time only 11 times. All other payments were late or in error.

    Advice to Management

    Move to NET 5 not NET 30 , 60, 90 as that's a violation of your subtention contracts.

    Pros

    CGI allows a flexible schedule. They have a work from home policy. They follow the government holiday schedule. Average benefit.

    Cons

    CGI has poor management. They have no regard for a work life balance. They have antiquated systems and no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Cgi needs to be more transparent with their sales queues. The sales team has sat on their hands for the past few years.
