    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and social culture
    Stable work environment

    Cons

    Management is not consistent through every business unit
    In some business units, it seems employees are placed on projects just to fill the space rather than based on their experience and skill
    There is not much of a career development program

    Advice to Management

    There have been a number of things rolled out for career development but management does not seemed trained so they're not able to properly guide their employees
