    I have been working at CGI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good new hire training program
    Account team managers are very supportive when rolling onto a project in terms of getting you up to speed
    Some opportunities are provided to show what you can do

    Cons

    Needs a little bit longer training for functional new hires
    Provide more opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Management

    New hires need to be able to afford to work for you, support themselves comfortablyou, and start saving. It's not very possible to do so on the entry level salary in a city like Fairfax. Especially for those who are not from the DC/MD/VA and end up moving to Fairfax or closer areas. Just something to consider for future and current new hires

    I have been working at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Tremendous company, vision, love the strategy and believe in the long term prospects. Check out stock price last 5, 10, 15 years, etc. we continue to run far at a steady but effective pace

    Cons

    Massive enterprise - things don't happen fast and that is for a very good reason. Sometimes trust and faith in corporate doctrine required - you can fall back on the stock price performance all these years to give you some foundation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be you - lead by example and through metrics and those of us destined to follow along successfully will see the right path. Thank you for your consistency and trust and faith in us.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent - especially the accident insurance which covers everything before the farcical medical insurance insurance deductible is reached (not specific to CGI). Note that medical insurance costs/coverage in the US is the laughing stock of the rest of the civilized world.

    Cons

    Old fashioned approach to consulting delivery
