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

Pros

Being treated like a business owner means you are in charge of your career, and can go any direction you want with it as long as you are willing and able.

Cons

Being treated like a business owner also means that there is a keen eye on the bottom line, so your stocks may go up but your total comp may vary depending on business needs.

    I worked at CGI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good employee stock purchase plan - 3% of my salary matched by CGI with immediate 100% vesting. Interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Low annual pay increases - had a 4% total salary increase for the entire last 5 years I was there. Over that same time employees' health insurance costs doubled while CGI's contribution only increased about 50%. Increasing corporate oversight on costs even when organization-wide systems such as audio/web conferencing system selection ignored the time costs for consultants and clients. Established corporate methodology not always followed. Training was pretty scarce - difficult to stay current with the profession as a SME when unable to attend professional organization conferences.

    Advice to Management

    Do a REAL cost/benefit analysis on the corporate travel organization. It is almost always possible to save project expenses by making arrangements directly with the providers rather than through the corporate site.
