    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Transparency (financials, mergers, book-to-bill, etc.) Training and some career opportunities. Mentorships. Competitive salary. Profit sharing. Remote work. Employer usually promotes from within.

    Cons

    Long hours. Compensation for overtime is not monetary, rather, you accumulate comp time off. Even though remote work is possible, long-term and short-term travel is expected if you do not live near any of the more prominent clients. The only medical benefits available have high deductibles. Promotions take a long time, sometimes many years for one level advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Management philosophy and techniques at the Director of Consulting level need to be consistent.
