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.
The hours were always flexible. If I needed time off to go pick up my daughter I could just make the hour up later that day. If you worked over the required hours in a pay period it would go towards compensatory time that you could then use as vacation later.
Overall good place to work. Office environment is relaxed. Collaboration is encouraged. Flexible working hours are a bonus. Benefits are pretty average. Management will work with you to find a position you enjoy. Sometimes you can get stuck in a position though if it's a hard position to recruit for.
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.
You will work like a slave for a very low wage. They are big on hiring a lot of college graduates and paying them bare minimum. For example, I was on a team of about 25 and 17 were junior level employees, 6 were mid-level and we had one senior level person. The good thing is CGI will send you to a lot of training. The bad is when your contract is over you sit on the bench and unless you are selected to work on another project, you will be played off. If you were a senior on one project, you might have to take a mid-level role once your project ends. There really in not a lot of stability. Again, the pay sucks.
Training, work culture
Pay, job stability
Overall, I would say that CGI is a great company to work with a lot of flexibility and a culture that cares about their employees. Team culture vary depending on what project you are on, but everyone I have been in contact with in the company was always very helpful and kind.
Work Life Balance, Great Co-Workers, Opportunities to Learn
Healthcare seems lacking for company size, Compensation can be lacking compared to industry, Promotion path very ambiguous
Workplace culture is great, everyone is relaxed for the most part. Many roles you can play in your career at CGI. You have to speak up to get what you want, if not, you will be placed on a project you have no interest in. Work life balance is really great! However, pay is low for my area. Discouraging to know that despite getting Exceeds Expectations on your review you still get a a low salary increase every year. No incentive to want to do better if that's the case.
Terrible pay for my area
A diversified culture, aging from 20 to 60+. I learned about different types of contract. The management is good, they will work with you on work schedules and appointments At least one a month the company would have something for members (fun and family time BBQ's, movie nights, bowling nights, catered meals in the office). It can be a fast pace environment. The end of month is always stressful, all the clients want their contract processed and expedited 1st and quick. Mandatory overtime is often at the end of the month.
Free coffee all day and fresh fruit in season, management working schedules and appointments
Mandatory overtime, the amount paid for the amount of work requested
Secure tech job with great Work/Life balance as they allow employees to work from home. No opportunity to advance and management skill varies wildly. Some managers have all the time in the world to micro manage while others are so busy with meetings you are lucky to get minutes of their time during the week.
work from home
hard to advance
- Typical work hours were ad-hoc as we provided 24x7 network support for our customers - Learned much about leadership, time management, diverse work cultures, and working with multiple engagement teams to solve problems - As a part if CGI, I was able to progress into management as an assignment manager. The management structure of CGI is excellently structured for the business they conduct - Co-workers and team members were an excellent part of the work community. - The hardest part of my job was also the most enjoyable part of my job which was the challenge of coordinating across multiple groups, learning technical solutions in short time frames, implementing solutions, and customer satisfaction.
