I worked at CGI full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nice company for start ups those are from college directly.

Cons

If your manager wants to replace you due to discrimination , then they will ask you for resignation. If you don't, then they will send you to special program and they will make sure you will fail it, eventually they will terminate you in 30 days. So when you asked to resign, then just resign. Do not fight with any one.
You should be ready any time to get another job. They advertise that they do not have any lay-offs in order to get good share price. But they will terminate you silently with out any severance. You should have more time, money and other resources to go to a law suit.
Please do not join if you have experience of 5+ years. and be ready for all those things said above.

Advice to Management

Please investigate the thoroughly when some one sent to special program. It may be due to racism discrimination and do justice to the particular employee.

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

    Pros

    The pay is decent for a recent graduate. The people are really nice and really want you to learn. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth within the company. Having the opportunity to travel is nice.

    Cons

    The benefits are great, but expensive. Depending on the projects that you land on, you could work LONG days. The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your new hires more and there won't be such a high voluntary leave rate.

    Pros

    Benefits are good and include profit sharing. Depending on your work experience and education level you may be able to get 3 weeks of vacation. Benefits began on the first day of employment. Onboarding process through HR is very good.

    Cons

    Work/life balance will depend on the project that you are on. If you are on the wrong project then the average working hours are from 60-80 hours a week, including weekend and holidays. The turnover rate is very high due to burnout and overall work conflicts (i.e unfriendly office culture, low morale...). Considerable rework and chaos. Lack of communication with other areas that have a direct impact on the application being built. The company rarely has layoffs and it was indicated there are many projects to move to, I personally have not seen a variety of different projects to move to.

    Advice to Management

    Put into practice the mission and values of the overall company. Hire managers and designate those who have the appropriate background and knowledge. Remember Members have lives outside of CGI. Make sure job postings clearly state that the work week will be more than 40 hours to include Holidays and weekends and will require frequent visits to the client site.
