Stay away from this place
Passport Support Associate (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJanuary 21, 2017
This is a horrible place to work for. Your a contractor and will always be reminded and the government employees and administration hazes the contractors, CGI management is incompetent and will not stand up for you. The company does not have an existing contract with the government and they are on a bridge meaning the company gives in to the government's every demand
Pros
Medical Insurance
Cons
Bad Management

Contractor atmosphere
Manager, Consulting (Former Employee) –  TexasJanuary 20, 2017
Overall, it's a great place to work, as long as your client has work. Once work is more maintenance, your role is eliminated, with minimal heads up and severance is non-existent.
Pros
Great benefits, great pay, outstanding coworkers. Enjoyed the work.
Cons
More of a contractor with benefits. Once assignment ends, it's YOUR responsibility to find next role. Layoffs abound.

Tech Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 20, 2017
While CGI is a great company to work for with great people and great opportunities, there is a lack of communication throughout the company.

I enjoy the networking that the company has to offer, and they provide tools to help you learn more about any technological field you set your mind to.

However, the opportunity for growth/advancement is a joke.

Under-qualified people get promoted, so in turn they are not much of a team player being that they do not understand a lot of process and procedures that the rest of the team knows.

I've been to other CGI locations that have more involved members working on projects, but sadly that is not the experience I've had.

The opportunity for overtime is great, however at times you can get taken advantage of your overall flexibility.

CGI is an OK place to work. I just wish that there was more opportunity for growth.
Pros
Co-Workers are great, Overtime opportunity is great
Cons
Management is undertrained

A slow company..
Consultant/Senior Developer (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VAJanuary 19, 2017
CGI is a slow company, does not believe in training or learning opportunities.

CGI provided ample PTO while I was there. Compensation was not very competitive and the work was not forward looking or exciting.

Benefits were not that great.

Not a great place to begin a career in technology.
Pros
Slow, PTO
Cons
Low compensation, boring work

Revenue Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 18, 2017
Overall, I liked working at CGI. My fellow coworkers across departments were amazing. My department had it where each person was assigned a birthday and you were responsible for setting it up: buying cake, decorations etc. It was nice to have a individualized day rather than sharing it with all the birthdays in the month or just getting a card on your desk. The pay was low all around for most positions. However, they did have flex hours.

Management lacking, Employees don't Matter
Manager (Former Employee) –  United StatesDecember 15, 2016
No employee loyalty, dysfunctional management and work environment, poor management, little commitment to career training and advancement. Management provides little to none in terms on mentoring and it is a extremely political environment. Many egos get in the way of being considered a High Performance organization. The HQ organization in Montreal is committed to the company growth and employee retention but it doesn't flow down the subsidiaries.
Pros
Many talented and dedicated employees.
Cons
No employee loyalty, dysfunctional work environment, poor management, little commitment to career training.

Good Company to work for
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mansfield, MADecember 6, 2016
I was employed by CGI for 25 years. It was a good company to work for with good benefits. The health insurance leaves a lot to be desired, however all the other benefits are good.

The department that I worked in was a diverse group of people doing various jobs, such as print operators, insert operators, clerks and warehouse workers.

One of the offerings is the employee Social Club where a member decides if they would like to participate. Participants have a deduction taken from their pay each pay date. The company matches the deduction which is twice what the member puts in. This money is used to run fun activities. Our department enjoyed several outings, apple picking for the families, seafood buffets and several other eating activities.
Pros
Stock Purchase Plan offered to members with match
Cons
They outsource departments

Good Location
Business Analyst Intern (Former Employee) –  Los AngelesDecember 5, 2016
The LA city office has a very friendly atmosphere and decent work-life balance. The downside is the work is mostly governmental and less industry so the variety is potentially less than some of its competitors.
Pros
Work-Life Balance, Decent compensation

Consultant - CGI Public Sector Group, Advantage (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VANovember 30, 2016
CGI is an international corporation, therefore, many big projects available. Which means many opportunities.
If you have a good team lead, manager, it's a very good environment to learn from a big company like this.
Furthermore, many nice and smart people.
