Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Very good people in most cases. Traveling is fun for the first 2 years. Flexible in work locations. Health and dental benefits are good just like most companies out there. Company matches stock options up to a certain percentage. Salary is only good out of college.

Cons

Salary reviews are worthless since you will only get the minimum which is very embarrassing to even talk about. Bonus are very rare and if you ever get one its not worth mentioning. Hard work is only rewarded in words. Management needs to fight more for the well being of there employees. Traveling becomes a pain.

Advice to Management

Management needs to fulfill there promises. Reward hard work with better bonus's and salaries.

    "An up and coming IT consulting firm looking to outpace the typical incumbents such as Accenture."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is a rising IT Consulting firm looking to compete against the big boys. This means more immediate career opportunity than working for firms like Accenture or Booz Allen but it also means the culture suffers a bit from an inferiority complex. If you're looking to grow your career quickly at a reputable firm then CGI might be the right choice.

    Cons

    The cost cutting culture affects day to day life by sucking some of the fun out of the environment. When compared to non-consulting examples (Google, Microsoft, etc) thing seem drab and boring. It wouldn't hurt to spend a few dollars here and there making the overall day-to-day office life a bit more enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up a bit!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    some of the co-workers. It depends on what office you work in. Canadian employees are treated great, the US employees, not so much.

    Cons

    Unless you want to be stuck outsourcing your entire life, forget it.

    Advice to Management

    stop looking for the $50 million contract, and get your foot in the door with people at $500K - $2M. Then, if you prove yourself, maybe you'll land that bigger contract.
