    I worked at CGI as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office just in front of the Bell Center, close to lots of restaurants and activities.

    Cons

    As a senior IT worker, CGI is not the place to go. Very boring work, lottttsssssss of immigrants who have been hired to fill up boring positions. People are and looked bored. I have worked as a permanent employe 12 years ago and recently as a contractor and it's worse than before. The main goal of CGI is to have people to bill their clients. They dont care about your hapiness but cares about having you do as much hours as possible so they can bill their clients accordingly. No remote work, no work-life balance advantages.

    Advice to Management

    By focusing only on hours billed you will slowly loose something that is very hard to replace, knowledgeable people. There is plenty of places to work in Montreal be carefull....

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some good colleagues who mean well

    Cons

    Company is focussed on profit margin and billable time only; temporary layoffs (no severance pay) common. Overall leadership OK, Toronto leadership lacking. Employees who are favored are kept and promoted. Family members hired. System constraints and lots of spreadsheet work.
