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

    Pros

    Organizational structure that provides clear career progressions if you have the work ethic to take advantage of it. There have also been clear investments made toward the "member" base as we'd like to be closer to the Deloitte's and Accenture's of the world, i.e., Consultants. A long way to go, but it shows change for the better.

    Cons

    Like every company, a lot of bureaucracy, and the corporate events to celebrate the employees are very limited. The Annual Tour is more of a patting the back of our executives than anything else, but it's a free meal and open bar.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the halls and say hello/thanks to the folks in cubes. It's extremely simple and amazingly effective to improve morale and work ethic.
