    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.

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

    Pros

    Depending on your project and project site- it can be relatively easy-going.

    Cons

    Your experience really depends on your relationship with your immediate supervisor. Even if you have a good relationship with your immediate though, the organization still lacks leadership from all sides. Management doesn't care how the work gets done or the quality of the work, as long as it says 'completed'.

    Advice to Management

    Work on putting the right people in the right place. Putting a 'senior' title on someone doesn't necessarily make a difference unless they're doing things to help the projects they're on. Promote the right people and have more direction and insight for the consultants who do the grunt work.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility and ability to work from home/virtually

    Cons

    No room for growth or control over your career, not easy to change between roles/jobs, high deductible insurance, low 401k match compared to similar companies, Zero communication on happenings within company or able to communicate with management, below average compensation and benefits compared to similar companies, not always challenging enough, this location you are pushed into certain jobs with no say

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a compensation scale put into place instead of the randomness that it is currently. There needs to be a system put into place so that people can easily move between jobs within CGI. Employees do not know anything happening or opportunities within company outside of their own group. Listen to your employees.
