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

    Pros

    The projects are stable and the company does try and acquire new contracts.
    The members that you work with genuinely seem to want to help you succeed and I've made a lot of good friends during my time.

    Cons

    Very little career growth and it basically it breaks down to HR not wanting to help you and will become unresponsive. They'd rather hire someone new than move you to a different area.
    This might be a good place to start a career in IT but depending upon your project and satisfaction it might not be somewhere you stay for 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Work with members to focus on their career growth in order to stop people from leaving for greener pastures.

    Better communication.
