Pretty good
Project Lead (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAMay 15, 2018
There's definitely potential at CGI to make a great career. Problems stem from just how big the company is and so there can be a lack of development here.

Overall good company
Director, Service Delivery Management (Current Employee) –  Troy, ALMay 14, 2018
Overall a good company with which to work. As you progress in your career, you will find the opportunities harder to come by and if you find yourself on the outside of the preferable career path, it can be hard to find a way forward.
Pros
Good culture, lots of learning opportunities
Cons
Dearth of advancement opportunities and salary.

Prodcutive and Fun Place to work
Senior Auditor (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAMay 12, 2018
Management empowers members to solve problems and is receptive to member ideas to improve operational performance and client satisfaction.

The company has recently changed its work form home policy which is direct contrast to the direction of most companies.

The culture is definitely collaborative, and that cohesiveness results in improved financial results.
Pros
Flexibility and independence
Cons
Compensation may be below market level

Ok
Logistics Technology Specialist (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALMay 10, 2018
This company is ok to work for. The only issue I have was if you were not in the click you would not receive a bonus. I thought that was very unfair but it was ok

Company that is somewhat understaffed to meet demands of new business coming in
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 9, 2018
A tough place to keep a good work life balance. 11 to 12 hour days very common. IT is also hard to take earned comp time when earned. Rejected most of the time. the people you work with are very outstanding. just how the company operates somewhat on a shoestring to make budget numbers.

Lots of opportunities but very little management support
Director Consulting Services (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAMay 8, 2018
Great experience gained and lots of opportunities for advancement. Minimal utilization thresholds allow for better work life balance.

Need to provide more training and support to members. 401K match is awful and health insurance deductibles are very high.
Pros
unlimited sick leave, share purchase plan with company match
Cons
poor 401K match, health insurance deductibles

have good work ethic to move up in the company
Buiness Analyst (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VAMay 4, 2018
Its about who you know here. Be willing to work hard, take on new tasks, and be willing to help others in order to be seen and make a name for yourself. It is great to do your job well, but it is not enough for upward mobility here. It is important to get out of the everyday job tasks.

Stay far away from contracts!
Contracts Administrator (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VAApril 25, 2018
The contracts department is the absolute worst! The management is terrible and incompetent. If you didn't know the director of contracts before coming to CGI, you are totally screwed. I am a religious person so I don't say this lightly, she is the devil. She doesn't understand that her Karma will come back around and hit her. Oh and they only employee white people so if your colored, don't bother...
Pros
none
Cons
everything!

Great Company to work for
Senior Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Albany, GAApril 25, 2018
This is the best company I have worked for so far. They are very fair to their employees and provide annual bonuses, The Paid Leave and Sick Leave are the best I have seen. The company also matches and contributes to their stock if you invest. The balance of work and personal life is great. I do not have anything negative to say about the company as a whole.
Pros
Many opportunities to advance and great benafits
Cons
Medical Benifits are average

CGI is a greats company, but is Contract driven
Case Worker Medicare Authorizations (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHApril 24, 2018
CGI, overall is an ideal place of employment, very little supervision, quiet and independent structure., Management on hand when needed, very diverse group of people. there was no real hard part to the job, not being overly social, and the most enjoyable part was was working at your own pace, while achieving your goal with little to no supervision and no phone.
Pros
schedule time, days and benefit
Cons
location, downtown.. pay for parking

Good Global IT Firm
Content Management Strategist (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VAApril 19, 2018
CGI is a good place to work. It provides good benefits and work life balance. It offers services in the areas of Digital Transformation, but does not invest too deeply in its workforce to build skillsets. Its a tough place to work with cutting edge technology because unless the technology is tied to a paying customer there is minimal investment for training. You must be billable or you get a 2-week notice.
Pros
Work life balance, relaxed work atmosphere
Cons
Job Stability, Limited promotion potential, Limited training and skill advancement

Terrible place to work for
Passport Support Associate (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 19, 2018
No room for growth
Micromanaged
Management is terrible and doesn't not care about you.
You are just a number ..
the turn over is very high.
Most employees are unhappy
There is no way to move to the government side.
Production sheets are required and expected to be done on your personal time.
Like I said it seems like a legit job, but it really is a joke of a company.
If you are looking for a place to grow and advance, this isn't it. Move on..
Pros
None
Cons
Management, pay, no room for growth, micromanaged

Not properly trained, and NO advancement
Passport Acceptance Agent (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 18, 2018
You will be a contractor for the government and the government will remind you of it everyday. The government won't treat you like a human being so make sure you have tough skin, because CGI won't take up for you.There was so many contractors and not enough seats, so you had to look busy with nothing to do and nowhere to sit. People who were there for 4 months was training me and they barely knew what they were doing.So much confusion from the supervisors. They all tell you something different and if the government complains when you get it wrong they act like they don't know what you're talking about. The company is just really unorganized.
