Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Learning from the worst is always a good lesson to receive. You'll learn how to treat your employees respectfully, how to come down from your high horse and listen to the people who worked hard to get you that giant bonus (what's a bonus?).

Cons

I don't think this box is big enough

Advice to Management

I wouldn't want my job back even if you could go back in time and not lay us off in the first place.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you are driven and motivated to succeed CGI will provide you with ample opportunities to shine and succeed.

    CGI does not hire employee it hires members (owners) that get to partake in all the benefits the company has to offer - profit sharing, stock options and a stock purchase plan.

    CGI's Senior Management are very passionate about the company and they have a clear vision and mission for CGI – it is very inspiring to hear them speak about CGI’s vision and mission.

    CGI has some great Managers that constantly provide recognition and feedback for a job well done – unfortunately there are those Managers that seem to forget to provide that words of recognition and thanks for a job well done do not cost them or the company anything.

    Cons

    It's a great company with many talented people yet they are unable to command the high per diem rates that companies such as IBM, EDS and Accenture enjoy.

    Advice to Management

    The Business Unit model needs some major changes to get the company acting as one - the days of local IT market are numbers and only the truely global players will survive.
