I have been working at CGI full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Diversified company operating across many market segments. This provides long term stability and many opportunities horizontally and vertically within the company.
- Total compensation package is very competitive, especially for members with proven work ethic, hands-on experience, current and relevant industry certifications and college education.
- Sky is the limit on your career. Your manner of performance is recognized and rewarded.
- Company offers industry certification and education re-imbursement that supports your professional development goals.

Cons

- 401K match is not the greatest, but at least they have a plan, something is better than nothing.
- On-boarding a bit cumbersome and back office response to correct issues lags.
- The direct labor members, who generate some of the company's profit and whose work performance helps win re-competes, tend to get short end of profit sharing stick.

Advice to Management

- Keep up great work providing strong, diversified, growing company that creates jobs!
- Don't try to be smartest person in the room, pride is good, but it can get in the way of success; coach and mentor instead.
- Pass more profit participation (bonus) down to lower levels, highly compensated executives don't need it as much as some members, especially the ones working in economically depressed areas.
