    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. It used to be a good place to work a few years ago.

    Cons

    There are quite a few "orphaned Bell employees" now working in CGI-CSB. On one hand, you can't win the development work because CGI wants to extract as much $ from the client as possible. On the other hand, the client is restructuring and knows they are being taken to the cleaners. The end result is that the systems development professionals get caught in the middle. To top it all off, they are also now determined to offshore the development work to India wherever possible!

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so greedy and be more willing to get your staff back to work.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Let me know when you find out. I love the work, but CGI has nothing to do with that.

    Cons

    No respect for employees, the company only thinks about making money and nothing else. Their constant attempt at making us think we are "members" instead of employees are pathetic at best. They promise the world and deliver none of it. I haven't been able to take any courses because they want me to learn "on my own time".

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that growth is the only thing you need. Once in a while, you need to stop and take measure of your growth and adjust your management style.
