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

Pros

Pay and benefits are decent for the area even though it falls short of industry standards.
Share Purchase Plan is nice.

Cons

Local management in Lawton plays favorites for certain sections. They hire someone into a group just to get that person into the company. Knowing that they intend to almost immediately transfer to another group leaving the first group in a perpetual state of being short handed.
HR is clueless, our local representatives are stationed in Huntsville, AL. Email correspondence goes unanswered 90% of the time unless upper management gets involved. When they are here and you ask a question they don't know the answer to they say "we will make a note of that and get back to you" which is hard to do when you immediately turn around and walk away without taking the employees name or contact info down.
Job responsibilities are not explained, management uses a catch all "and other duties as assigned" in every job description to justify giving you assignments that have nothing to do with the job you originally signed on for.
Middle and upper management are constantly bad mouthing problem employees when they think no one is listening but never take action against the employee in question.

Advice to Management

The operations of this office need to be closely examined. The company should provide a HR rep that is actually local and is willing to research answers to questions asked. Job responsibilities should be clearly defined and the people should get the right jobs. Not a job that is convenient just to get someone into the company.

    Pros

    Paycheck comes on time. That's a good thing, right? Employee stock purchase program is a good deal.
    From a business side, they run a very tight ship.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't competitive and the benefits are sub-standard. Management doesn't give a crap about career development or career planning; all they are interested in is selling you. Titles and job descriptions are WAY out of whack with the rest of the industry. They don't value highly technical people and consistently reward mediocrity. And if you get rolled off of a project, you have three weeks or your fired; this doesn't make for a very good work environment when everyone is worried about getting fired.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of your people as more than just products. It's a competitive market for people with technical skills and you'll be left with the scrubs that no one else wants. Well ... since mediocrity is rewarded, that may be just fine with you.
