    Pros

    The people at CGI are great. Those that I've worked with have been very easy to get along and work with. Member managers have been attentive when necessary and willing to provide good advice. The benefits are also great, especially the Share Purchase Plan.

    Cons

    The bench policy is unreasonable. Once a project is over, employees have 3 weeks to find a new project, or they are separated from the company. The system for find a new position is quite flawed; employees are expected to use an often out of date list of openings to find a new project as well as their own network. Communication from management has gotten better recently, but it's still pretty poor. Employees rarely find out about upcoming projects, so planning ahead is rather difficult. Salary increases are another point of concern. Salary reviews come yearly, but the increments are very small - these are said to be performance based but that does not seem to be accurate.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication to lower level employees about what is going on with new business. The bench policy is not acceptable with the given resources. Improving the resources for employees to find new positions would go a long way in improving satisfaction.

    Pros

    The lower level co workers are the best thing there. One of the perks is the company match for a Social Club which allows us to get together and plan events.

    Cons

    Management is more interested in trying to make their bonus numbers and not interested in employee morale.
    The number of consultants/senior consultants let go to make room for a senior VP of sales is astonishing when they dont sell anything.

    Advice to Management

    Need to sell more consulting projects and services. Stop blaming the onsite teams for problems caused by lack of senior management.
