Your experience at CGI could vary widely, based upon your work location and function. Some people who work here are satisfied with their jobs, others are not. Generally speaking, I fall into the latter category. At most times during recent years, upper management places a strong emphasis on cost cutting and minimizing all expenses. This, unfortunately, goes beyond the expected areas like business travel or small perks. Raises are essentially flat, and so are bonuses - though they have never been stellar anyway (1%-2% raises, and $1000-$1500 bonuses). They used to provide a small stipend for those working remotely to cover expenses - around $100 per month to cover printer ink, paper, internet connections, phone, etc. They've also stopped that practice as well. If career growth is important, you may want to consider other places. Most of the people I've worked with for over 8 years have stayed in the same position, with the same title, performing the same activities. Other consulting firms have more defined career paths, with clearly articulated expectations. In many cases, management seems uninterested in working to help grow people and their careers. This is unfortunate as I've seen some very good people leave the company because of this. Many more are quietly looking for other opportunities as well. I'd really like to say that I like working here, considering some of the flexibility that some positions (like mine) offer, but I can't. Had I to make the decision to come here, knowing then what I know today, I would have pursued other options.
Good work environment with great benefits. People are treated with respect and given opportunities to grow into higher level positions. Primary focus of company is profit and all decisions are based on maximizing profit even at the cost of employees.
With CGI, you can expect good work life balance and management that cares to have your professional and personal needs met. The only downside would be the compensation, which I've found is significantly lower than the industry standard without much ability to negotiate a raise. Very inclusive and community based culture.
#1 employee desire was job security according to a poll I did when I took over a team of 40+. Executive management doesn't get that. Frequently left members hanging with regards to what opportunity they would have after a project completed. Employees that knew the application in and out, no problem. Those on the outskirts that performed support roles might find themselves on the street when project finished. This company doesn't reward loyalty.
Flex time, Wfh
Loyalty, job security
CGI culture: In nurturing our ownership mentality, we always seek the best equilibrium between our three stakeholders, our clients, members and shareholders, while being a caring and responsible corporate citizen in the communities in which we live and work.
CGI has seemed to change over the last 4 years. While teams and projects seemed to work closely to create new innovations, it seems that leadership is no more focused on the bottom line. CGI struggles with new innovations, ideology and overall direction.
