    None that I can think of.

    Work life balance and employee caring company. Employee benefits are good if you are enrolled for share purchase plan. Because of diversity of work culture make the company wonderful!!

    Health insurance plan is certainly not up to mark of bigger organization. It is in fact expensive and you will have to pay lot from your pocket.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Great place to start if you have no experience - they take anyone

    Cons

    Horrible place if you want:
    Career advancement
    Training of any sort
    Good salary (or a decent one at that)
    Good management
    Friendly work environment.

    You have to basically kiss up to the 'account executive' in order to get a decent raise or get promoted.
    Very clique - y, and if you're not in the right clique, forget it.
    Management doesn't understand the concept of profit and loss - think everything that is expensed doesn't come out of their budget.
    Had to layoff 15 people because the management team didn't manage the finances correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the management team in san diego and start from scratch. You can't teach a stubborn dog new tricks

    Pros

    -Great Co workers
    -Depending on Project- all federal holidays
    -Social club is fun but maybe more events? Holiday parties and annual tour are always a blast.
    -You learn a lot through classes that are required by the company.
    -Maje sure you sign up for the Share Purchase Plan for the company
    -unlimited sick days(although frowned upon when they notice you are taking too many days)

    Cons

    Some projects you are assigned to are bad. So make sure you know what you are getting to. Some of them are heavy helpdesk environment.
    Bad health Insurance
