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

Pros

One project I worked on was very good with excellent people, great teamwork, and high morale even under extreme pressure. Everyone pulled together, good sharing of knowledge, and everyone worked hard to get the job done under extremely challenging conditions. Company worked hard to compensate for long hours by providing free lunches/dinners, and some extra compensation for long hours.

Cons

A second project was the exact reverse of the first project. Claimed that schedule was tight, but often times when someone completed a task the technical lead had no new task to give them. One of several signs of extreme disorganization. This caused low morale, and several people leaving within a short period of time. Seemed to be split by new members of the project versus people who had been on the project for quite some time. New members often were not tasked well, and were not given enough chance to understand the business functions. Technical lead bad-mouthed some new members to others on the project, which got back to new members making them feel unappreciated and not being given proper chance. Management seemed not to care about this as long as work was getting done.

    Pros

    office culture, good place to start off, relaxed work environment, not strict on work hours or vacations, benefits were awesome and reasonably priced, profit sharing bonuses and a share purchase plan which was a good way to save money

    Cons

    Center of excellence offices do not want to let employees transfer to other larger offices with better opportunities, and pay employees half of what they would be making in larger offices for the same job and work.
