Engineer (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALAugust 20, 2014
Pros: unlimited sick leave
Cons: healthcare has gone from blue cross to hdhsa. which is much more expensive if you get sick often.
I enjoy working at CGI. They are a large company, but they have a hometown feel.

A typical day at work is low stress with flexibility to family situations and personal errands.
Management is the best part of this company. They care about there people and they make coming to work pleasant and enjoyeable.

The employees/coworkers are very positive and – more... always work together without issues. – less

On an average day at work I come in at 8 am start working on updating project and or creating new projects. During this time I am also training other members on the project side of different accounts. 10am I will start running invoices. This is where I send final invoices to clients via email/mail or CGI members will pick them up.

Good Employee Benefits but no real job stability right now.
Sr QA Engineer (Current Employee), Fairfax, VAJuly 26, 2014
Pros: if you are on the right team - you can work from home several days a week.
Cons: still some directors and management are freaked out by the whole work from home concept.
This company is great for someone who gets into the right place at the right time. If you get in on the ground floor of a long term contract and are there for many years - and are one of those people who can make the right people like you - then eventually you know where all the bodies are buried and they cannot do without you. So when the time comes – more... for the "Roll offs" you won't get hit. If the contract is rebid and CGI looses it - then you are out - and will need to look for another project. The last hired is usually the first rolled off. And you might as well not even try and move up - because if you make manager it is almost impossible to get another project. If your rate is too high - you won't make the cut for a position even if you are well qualified.

This become almost like a step up from a temp contractor job - except you are part of the company and treated like you work there. Government contracting for CGI is no longer a stable job.

As a college hire - if you can stay and hop around for at least 2 years it will give you a great foundation to move to another company. But I would not make any large purchases until you are sure that you will not be "rolled off" your contract.

Certain people are given opportunities - (for the Project Management PMI certification) and some of us are never even approached. So career growth is really non-existent and on every survey the training and career opportunities are rated really low,

Benefits are better than most - the bonuses for Individual contributors - not so much.

On some projects you are allowed to work from home a few days a week and your schedule is very flexible - but when they need you at midnight they expect you to be there (which is fair).

There are other projects where the management is old school and is really into face time. They are really freaked out by people working from home - its like they are loosing control or something. Oh and these managers will still call you at all hours and expect you to jump and then be in on time the next morning.

Unfortunate because some projects the employees are getting a raise just by being able to work from home while those that come in every day are not. – less

CGI has its ups and downs but it really depends on whats important to you.
Service Desk Analyst, US Courts (Former Employee), Reston, VAJuly 12, 2014
Pros: shared purchasing plan
Cons: management
I did not have a great experience working there but I am sure others will be different. The benefits were awesome! The management wasn't very perceptive to the needs of their employees. The morale was often extremely low in the office and if it was brought to the attention of management they wouldn't do anything. Hardest part of the job was watching – more... as people sat around milking the clock were rewarded and people who really wanted to learn were laid off. Most enjoyable were the times when the off-site and on-site employees would get together for events or meetings and you could actually feel like you were apart of something. – less
