Don't work here. The pay is low and the required hours are long. There is no job security. Jobs are sent off shore. No bench time with no work available in Columbus.
Cons
Pay, hours

Jag hade en gruppledare med psykopatiska drag och en feg chef som inte kunde ta itu med problemet.Visa hanteringen från företaget var under all kritik, efter ett 0t fick jag fixa allting själv.
Cons
Ingen som tänker på annat än sig själva

Great for a first job out of college, but not as good long-term. Great flexibility and work-life balance; most weeks will be 40 hour weeks with flexible scheduling. Generally decent job security if you're in one of the delivery centers but less security for everyone else. Slower on advancement and lesser in pay than nearly all companies in both the technology and consulting spaces.

One of the worst MSP to work for. All they care about is their CEO's and profit share holders money. Was laid off (perhaps age?) because of the company was loosing money (was there reasoning), but turned out they had already replaced my position the next day. I had worked long days, long weekends spent a lot of time working with no compensation or gratitude other than what came from the client. It also became very stressfull environment all due to their unprofessional management (a lot of swearing and finger pointing).
Pros
common benifits
Cons
chaos, firefighting

Inflated sense of what company is capable of delivering. Good people but aimless management. Poor training options for technical folks. If not for CGI's massive presence it brings to new opportunities, your average small startup would eat their lunch in delivering lean, well-written solutions if given the chance.
Pros
Good place for new hires fresh out of school to learn the ropes...
Cons
Horribly organized intranet for employees to find what they need

They don't keep their word on compensation. Promotion is from who you know not what you know or performance. Layoffs are. Random without 2 week notice. They treat federal workers with compassion and respect and make is sit through meetings praising promotion and compassion of federal workers and disregard contract workers.
Pros
17 hr wage to 20. Insurance is Cigna 401
Cons
No in house human resources for 400 workers. No promotion no respect.

Steer clear! Absolutely terrible place to work in the UK. More staff death’s and health issues than any other place I’ve worked. UK business model is simple ‘undercut the competition to the detriment of the service, to win the bid & pass the pain down to the staff doing the work’. If you think you’ll receive management support, think again, you’re just another number! Department managers are poor at best, with Victorian management styles having built their dept empires and final salary pensions a long time ago. Career progression is limited for those that do stay (which tend to be people living close to an office by) steer clear!
Pros
Reasonable share save scheme and pension, if you live to see it!
Cons
Poor work life balance, rewards and work culture. Senior management very poor.

I won't say DO NOT WORK here, but do if you do, don't work at Seattle or have an exit strategy if you do. Yes, compension is somewhat higher than minimum wage in Seattle currently, especially if you do not have a bachelors' degree. However, the management of the contract staff is absolutely horrible. You will be monitored heavily when you come back from break and lunch times and if you're late, it will be characterized as time theft. Management will guilt you for taking PAID time off, quote, "if you stay home or call in, then someone else has do YOUR JOB and that's not fair." Sorry, but that's the modern work life, that employees get sick and need to take time, especially if you have sick kids or kids at all during this crisis, prepare to be guilted. Production is all they care about, and reporting good numbers to govwernment staff, and you will be treated like a number. The passport manager has a strong problem with nepotism and will act like you are invisible if you are any kind of "othered" person (non-white, older, disabled). Government staff will also treat you as less than because you're a contractor. Work stops once you get home and like I said, compensation is slightly better than minimum and it's not labor intensive, mostly boring paper pushing ands processing. \
Pros
Work/Life: Work stops once you get home.
Cons

CGI is a great company and I enjoy working for them. The one downfall is they want you to sell something before you build it versus build then sell. This is a downfall in my mind as the building is hurried and not vetted out.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
Proximity Model, means if you don't work where you client is you are always fearful for your job.

Awfully unfortunately for me, I didn't realize on the interview that somebody's - worst on Earth - pronunciation would become my curse.All team members whispered behind that person's back. He has a very short temper, so naturally the general atmosphere of fear and punishment is in the air ! With the "porridge" he's blabbering, he shouldn't survive 10 minutes, leave along 17 years in CGI plus becoming government employee ! I became the only one was blamed for being "racist". Absolute nonsense, swear my life to God !!! They complained to Public Safety, jeopardizing my career ! So all my 30 years of software development experience (Microsoft, Java, JavaScript, Android, Python, Angular / Vue and others) is nothing for them ! Stay away from CGI in Ottawa, if your career, your health and future, your family is dear for you !
Pros
Their management can get their free lunches to the graves !
Cons
All my 30 years of software development: Microsoft, Java, JavaScript, Android, Python, Angular / Vue and others - nothing for them ! Stay away from CGI if your career, your family and your future is dear for you !

Some excellent people driving the success at CGI (now Pyroguard). Difficult production environment to compete against the bigger companies which often doesn’t sit well with production staff. There’s a balance to be struck. Pyroguard has some market leading products lead by an advanced R&D team.
Pros
Great products
Cons
Acrimonious production staff
