I have been working at CGI full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are work-from-home/remote work roles which saves on comuting, travel time, and allow members a better work/life balance. The stock option is a great benefit.

Cons

Unless you are willing to travel and aggressively seek out other roles, your career advancement can be stale.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CGI as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a pulse, they will hire you.

    Cons

    They will lie to your face and make promises that they have no intention of keeping. They go into a client and low ball on a bid for some aspect of IT work They then hire a skeleton onshore team while in the background, developing a migration plan to ship the jobs overseas. They are one of the worse companies I have ever seen, their managers come across as lower than a used car salesman.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your account managers not to say one thing and do another. They are playing with people's livelihoods and have enough stress in their life rather than have the rug pulled out from underneath them with no warning
