    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Able to work from home when needed. Many opportunities for advancement. Lots of training available to you. You can bank comp-time up to 40 hours for leave. However, this accrued after you work hours over. Also get up to 8 hours flex time which you must the week after you work it or it's gone. Profit-sharing at the end of the fiscal = Christmas bonus. Flex Spending account for health care spending AND Dependent Care (i.e., daycare). Shared purchase plan lets you purchase company stock (company matches up to %).

    Cons

    If you work 8 or less hours over on a week, you can ONLY use that as flex time the following week or it goes bye-bye.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Outstanding group of professionals to work with. Co-workers were for the most part very helpful and gracious to assist in projects and troubleshooting.
    -Unlimited sick days.
    -Flexible enough to allow you to work home one day per week.

    Cons

    -Micromanaged to some degree.
    -Worked way too many hours due to unrealistic and unknown deadlines. This created unnecessary stress.
    -Lousy benefits package.
    -Some managers would not grant you the ability to perform your duties without intervention.
    -Salary ranges varied wildly and mostly below normal industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Review yourselves often and allow more autonomy for your subordinates to complete tasks and manage projects. Support your people's decisions even when faced with risks of failure. Start growing this company outside of the government sector.

    Awesome office, great people who seem to take pride in what they do. The interview process was welcoming and felt very genuine. Did one interview on campus and one onsite.

    Haven't began to work there yet, but there we're no problems during the interview process whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the interview style, it was nice to meet people on both sides of the company.
