    I worked at CGI full-time

    Pros

    Great people and good solutions (but some solutions dated). Working remotely is possible. Very good benefits including stock.

    Cons

    Leadership in many of CGI's industry practices don't offer the same level of help as in other big companies. They need to listen more to the staff's ideas on ways to improve the company and products (i.e., Leadership does not have all the correct answers). Many leaders seem to be still practicing the management techniques used decades ago.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and use the knowledge that outside experienced hires bring to the company.

    Pros

    Benefits, SPP sharing and insurance.

    Cons

    Management and on the job training. Projects are short and long term ones have senior employees with a non-team approach. Current employees do no look out for new hires and aid them with the project. Everyone must learn on their own and no one looks out for the other so they grow as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Have on the job training for new hires and current employees.

    I have been working at CGI full-time

    Pros

    CGI was willing to take on an employee who did not fit exactly into their model and created opportunities to grow and mature professionally.

    Cons

    Treatment of employees was not necessarily great. The front line managers cared about their people, but Corporate did not seem to be invested in their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line managers more and take their advice.
