A great work culture
Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Belton, TXDecember 13, 2018
The ability to work remotely is a great benefit for those ho are able to take advantage of it. The company healthcare plan isn't the best out there so if that's a huge issue applicants may want to seriously reconsider applying.

Good Company
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 10, 2018
Very few companies will provide employees the ability to purchase stock in the company and then match what the employee puts in. The biggest knock I have is the extreme disconnect between the local business units and the corporate office, which is generally consistent with any large company.

I really felt that CGI wanted me because of my skills and they expressed interest in what I brought to the company. I would recommend any IT professional to work for CGI in the future

Responsible for Every Detail
Meetings & Exhibitions Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARDecember 6, 2018
The days in the office are typical. Working 8 hours or more to complete the required task which included data entry, phone research and finding locations for meetings. Four staff members worked in an office that was approximately 6'x8', therefore conversation with other employees was not possible. Everyone was is very friendly. However, I was the oldest staff person and proving that I could do the same workload as other staff was always challenging. Part of the job was traveling to various locations and working with vendors, hotel and food service management. That was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Frequent travel and learning about hospitality industry
Cons
Too much travel, not enough family time.

Sound management, slow to respond to market trends
DIRECTOR, CONSULTING SERVICES (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 6, 2018
The company is responsibly run but often a cultural and management difference amongst different projects/programs.

Responsibility to move around internally is placed on the employee, little to no help internally.
Pros
Trust the people here and that they will do the right thing for the client.
Cons
Benefits declining rapidly, including training opportunities

The manager with which I worked was the most ineffective and feckless person I have ever seen. He would not engage and advocate for needed changes with the client.

Meh working conditions. Young culture is great though.
Business Analyst, Consultant (Current Employee) –  Belton, TXNovember 27, 2018
Your day to day depends on your project. It can be mind numbing easy, absolutely nothing, or straight up abusive. Some clients are better than others. Management can be nice, but don't expect anything more than a 1 or 2% raise a year no matter what.

COMMUNICATIONS SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 12, 2018
Great place to work. Everyone has a common goal so it makes for a great working environment. I do wish I was able to telework. That would have made coming back to work after my birth a lot easier.

Internal Advancement Highly Preferred
Control Account Manager - O&M (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VANovember 6, 2018
I worked with CGI for over a decade and realized that CGI would prefer to advance someone internally over a hired position in most cases. Where this mentality failed was with upcoming or ongoing relationships where the contracting organization was critical of CGI's approach to success. Certain contracts require personnel that are aware of CGI's incredible depth and breadth of skills, while balancing the needs and end goals of the agency.
Pros
Breadth of knowledge/skills
Cons
Lack of experience with particular agency
