Enjoyed my time at CGI. I like a challenge in a job. Planned on working here until I retired but times have changed and I don't know if there are jobs like that anymore. Enjoyed my team members. When a client contract ends, so do the jobs.
Pros
Great employees
Cons
Many long hours

Was a better company before the buy out
Program Analyst/Asset Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 12, 2017
When we were Stanley LLC, we had a more relaxed company that was moving up in the military contracts world. The company frequently had employee get togethers, on and away from the office. Benefits package was one of the best in the area, and we were rated one of the best companies to work for in the Washington DC area. Once the buyout was completed however, things changed. The company get togethers went away. The new corporate structure did not understand military contracts and the relationships that need to be built and maintained to stay in the field. Company had to downsize by half, due to lost contracts.
Pros
Close to Subway System
Cons

Horrible Contract Manager
Support Staff (Former Employee) –  Honolulu, HIDecember 6, 2017
The worst most incompetent manager. She acts very unprofessional in her demeanor and behavior especially with a male security guard on staff even though she is married. She has no idea how to do any part of the job and is always wondering all over the office just chatting. No guidance or support at all. Very demoralizing atmosphere in the Honolulu passport agency.

Secure and demanding
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 6, 2017
The company is a classic example of capitalism. Most decisions made at the C and PM levels appear to be short-sided; that is, stopping at nothing to hit short-term financial goals. These practices often meant losing key, experienced workers and struggling to find new college hires to fill the positions at a lower cost.

Great place to start
Market Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 6, 2017
CGI is a great place to start. You learn about the world of consulting and how to navigate through it with CGI members that are behind you and back you 100%. The best part of the job like any job is the people. Kind, hard-working, and incredibly intelligent teammates that make working here fun.
Pros
Good work-life balance
Cons
Lower pay than industry average

Hello
Field Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  El Paso, TX 79928December 5, 2017
Hardest part leaving to provide support to customers and not knowing how long you might be home once complete.

Work at location on your own. Visit customers through out the day and provide support or answer questions that they might have.

CGI is a work life balance workplace
Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VANovember 30, 2017
CGI is a work life balance workplace. Management is good. They care about employee. There is no clear path for career advancement. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you can work from home.

Terrible
Support Associate (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYNovember 29, 2017
No room for advancement, poor management, lack of time off. People who do less work are rewarded while the hard workers are punished. Managers never help out when its needed.

Decent Company
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VANovember 27, 2017
Although a large conglomerate, if you learn your way around you will benefit greatly. A lot of opportunity to grow. The key is staying abreast/involved with your environment.

Legacy IT Shop, old school consulting, stuffed shirts, poor management
Director of Development (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VANovember 26, 2017
Total lack of connection between stated management approach, and actual line management. The claim is of transparency, but it is totally lacking. They want people to be local, like IBM, that's so 80s. If you are a millennial looking for a cool place, where management actually cares about your well being, skip this place.

Don't be productive here, it won't get recognized. You need to keep your head down, and not get 'whack-a-moled'.

It's all about filling a time-card, the reminders and pressure to bill is constant and overwhelming. I'm sure many people bill time, and focus on filling in time card, rather than actually doing any work.
Pros
Easy enough to be ignored, just do a good job.
Cons
Time card pressure

Contract project
Contractor, CMS, MSP COB&R CRC (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXNovember 22, 2017
No guarantee of continued employment once a contract ends. Company culture and senior leadership would have improved the life of the contract. As an information technology organization, there were many IT issues which created a strain on any adherence to metrics.
Pros
Many benefits to choose from and with advancement ability to work from home.
Cons
Leadership, management, project culture did not match overall organizational culture.

Very unorganized company changes every week with little training if any. My Team lead was the best thing about CGI at least if you had a question she would get back to you quickly on the thing to do to resolve issues.
