Productive workplace with a break room and free coffee
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Troy, AL – February 9, 2016
A typical work day depends on the project you are working on. For the project I was working on, I had to perform regression testing. The management wasn't located in the office I was working in so we had weekly meetings to discuss items related to our project. My teammates on the project were very friendly. The hardest part of the job is performing regression testing in areas of an application you have little to no experience in. The most enjoyable part of my job was updating documentation to include the new enhancements added to an application.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – January 27, 2016
I worked for CGI for 10 years and I have been on some great projects and some not so great ones. It really depends on the project you are on.
I do say that it is a big company and if you are on client site it feels like each project is a different company. Also, CGI isn't that competitive salary wise with other companies in the DC area which leads to a high turnover.
The profit sharing and the CGI stock options are very nice perks.
Senior Developer/Analyst (Current Employee) – Lebanon, VA – January 25, 2016
This job is good for short term but if your looking to move up or prove yourself then this is not the job for you. They are more interested in getting the fresh out of the college hires and saying how much things are growing.When in reality the only numbers show they are always hiring so many but that's because the seasoned employee was either getting laid off or finding work somewhere else.
Director (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 15, 2016
I have worked at CGI for over ten years, as have several of my colleagues. I don't know of many other consulting firms that foster a similar culture of people building long-term careers in the company.
I have had opportunities to work in multiple offices, to travel and to work locally based on the company's and my personal needs.
I have been put in roles of progressive growth throughout my career and believe the process of reward through compensation and advancement is fair. You have to prove you can operate in a role to receive this reward.
The primary reason I choose to continue to build my career at CGI is the incredibly smart and hard-working people I have the opportunity to work with every day.
People, Flexible hours when project schedules permit
I have been part of CGI since 5 + years and its great place to work and good culture. Its been great support from management to grow professionally. we have very good long term clients in CGI and new technologies involved and CGI always encourage its employees upgrade to new technologies.
Group I worked with was unprofessional & lacked boundaries
administrative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 15, 2015
They provided little to no training and constantly changed procedures. When I asked my team lead about writing down procedures, he replied" I should not have to. You guys should remember." The work environment was very negative and at times hostile. Management did not care. If you did not like it, you could leave. No one took responsibility and pointed fingers at others when there was a problem or error.
Free lunch at times. Free wifi
Management not transparent, long response time to fix problems, not provided tools to do job

Project Scheduler (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 1, 2015
CGI is that company you get hired onto and then find you could maintain a healthy career here and always learn something new. Whether its the government side or Enterprise IT/Project management. Training is abundant and the company really looks out for your work to life balance......
