    So far there are no cons.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, no pressure to find a project, wfh availability (depends on your team)

    Momentum ERP not the most exciting tool

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

    Pros

    The finance team at CGI is made up of 4 people including myself. So it is hands on and there are tons of opportunities to learn. Other pros include
    - friendly environment
    - amazing office set up and great kitchen
    - you can learn as much as you are willing to learn
    - seems to be a .org to grow in the company
    - many offices so you could even transfer to another city after you put in your time.

    Cons

    You are pretty much expected to stay til around 5 most days even if you show up at 7.
    You need to take full responsibility for learning and growing it is YOUR JOB your success or failure is based solely off your own initiative.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great and I honestly have no complaints! Austin and Ralph are awesome managers and I feel right at home here :)

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Easy work for most part. Good co workers for most part

    Cons

    No chance of growth, lack of raise potential, no sick leave, no leave without pay either

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating a better home/ work balance for your employees. Maybe do a manager training program or something that allows growth. Seems like we are just numbers for your government contract so they high ups can make their money
