Pros

Great colleagues and easy-to-work-for management. CGI promotes healthy work-life balance. Above average compensation. Diverse offerings allow for plenty of job variety, if you so choose. Nice stock purchase plan.

Cons

Very little emphasis on career development and personal growth. Huge company where you can sometimes feel like a number rather than a valued employee. Benefits are not stellar - vacation time was just reduced and the highly-touted profit sharing is fleeting and hard to come by.

Advice to Management

Place more emphasis on individual employee development through training initiatives and evaluations that are not so routine and formulaic.

    Pros

    Depending on the project and team lead/manager, there can be very good mentoring from the senior staff. Most personnel at the director level are very good mentors and excellent subject matter experts. Most co-workers are a pleasure to be around during work and after work hours.

    Cons

    Long hours depending on the project. If you end up working on a large engagement on a client site, there will be virtually no work/life balance since you will be asked to work long hours. More than likely, you'll end up loosing your vacation time. It takes several years before most people see their first promotion (of course there are the exceptions where people are promoted within 4-6 years). Yearly raises can be given before receiving yearly performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance for project staff, better raises and bonus system to remain competitive, and career mobility.
