    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management

    I have been working at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits (stock purchase plan, profit sharing when key BU metrics are met, 401k, health/dental/vision etc.), great people, allow telecommuting/remote work.

    Cons

    Often asked to juggle more at one time than is possible impacting focus on key responsibilities, noticed fairly recent demonstrated shift away from core values that made the company great during earlier years of employment and a culture of micro-management starting to manifest in my group.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a person in a small town, it makes it possible to have a career working on projects for world-class companies around the world.

    Cons

    Although they offer opportunities that someone in a small town wouldn't normally have, you are also paid significantly less than you would be in a larger town.

    Advice to Management

    The morale in the office would be much better if the employees had a sense of ownership. After being bought by CGI, a number of things that we used to do in the office (open bulletin board, locally organized events, etc.) have been taken away.
