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

Pros

40 hour weeks, great starting salary, lots of young people, learn technical skills, excellent college recruiters

Cons

hard to get promoted, in my account it was 4-5 years for a promotion. Upper management would hire someone as a senior business analyst rather than promote someone infinite times more worthy. Office was in Fairfax which wasn't really metro accessible

Advice to Management

career development, promote from within (especially when dealing with a proprietary software), better raises and compensation for top consultants who leave for companies that are willing to pay them

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits matching stock purchase up to 3%, annual bonus social club which sponsors events, good for college new hires, work from home depending on the project

    Cons

    terrible training (experience hire would have a culture shock) training is geared towards young college grads just starting out their career, 25% chance you will be on a bad team, if your black you will find there aren't many in management they are typically hired in HR and to staff the company's internal helpdesk on the 4th floor

    Advice to Management

    better training, better organized training, stop letting senior consultants work from home all the time they need to be in office more to help develop new members, diversify mgmt. (minorities to INCLUDE BLACK MEN AND WOMEN) . I rated low because lack of opportunity and poor training but you can always take your stock and bonus and pave your own path
