I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Momentum program is stable and pays the bills. Not a overly competitive environment. Depending on project, could work with some great people.

Cons

Team members are divided into Functional and Technical. If you are Technical, you're advancement opportunities are more limited as the functional team gets more exposure to clients, meetings, other teams. Some team members not very creative and expect to be told exactly how to do something. Those are the ones that just show up to get a paycheck.

Advice to Management

Hire good all around people. That is, people who could learn the functionality of the application and have technical skills.
