Pros

401k and Stock Plan are not bad. Medical is decent. If you are comfortable with not knowing what you're doing and jumping into a new project there's plenty of room to grow.

Cons

Management does not have morale as one of the things they should be interested in. EG: PMs will repeatedly agree to client wishes/changes without understanding the change or impact on personnel and timelines; then expect the 'slack' to get picked up out of thin air. The only reason projects succeed is due to near heroic efforts of some to get the job done. Turnover is also high for the same reason. Many contracts (new bid and incumbent bid) were lost due to new HUGE overhead costs that are baked into proposals.

Advice to Management

At some point you'll have to start listening to the folks that have been telling you for 3 years now since you bought into the defense business with the Stanley acquisition. We're getting underbid and overworked constantly. You're lucky you still have some the people you do.

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

    Pros

    My first job out of college, its been good so far. I feel as if I have grown a lot a a professional and learned a lot about the industry. Many different projects to work on, HR is pretty good about helping you move to one that fits your interests.

    Cons

    Upper management could make more of an effort to interact with/ get to know their employees.
