    Pros

    Employees are nice, friendly and good people in general.

    Cons

    Should be able to work from home, but can't. Systems are out of date. Receive decent amount of vacation time that you can never take. Work/life balance is terrible. No room for growth. Benefits are expensive.

    Pros

    I think quite a bit depends on the people you work with, but I absolutely loved my time with CGI because my coworkers and managers were incredible people. It is a great place to get your start as team members were quick to share knowledge and managers were interested in helping you craft your career path the way you wanted to go. I also enjoyed the work itself quite a bit.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay and a laughable raise after receiving high praise in performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying (and rewarding) your people more. Had the pay been closer to my market value - even still a bit under, just not severely under - I would still be working there.

    I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Minimal supervision from Directors.
    Expectation that employees are professional to their peers/colleagues.
    Share Purchase Plan is nice.

    Cons

    Director/VP level is "cliquey" and if you are not inside the trust circle, good luck advancing your career.
    General lack of direction and oversight, also contributes to employees just doing whatever they feel like, up to not reporting for shifts.
    Management's consistent desire to "do more with less"

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends and start hiring qualified personnel.
    Also, how about winning some business?
