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!
Reasonable share save scheme and pension, if you live to see it!
Poor work life balance, rewards and work culture. Senior management very poor.
I have the opportunity to work with many great team members on a daily basis. The structured work flow and appetite for further learning is prevalent in the workplace.
Help us improve!

CGI does not train well and the politics are horrible. Not much room for advancement and they will not take your career seriously. They very much have the "we have always done it this way so we will continue to do it this way" mentality. Every project in their portfolio was over budget and behind schedule.
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.
As long as the work is getting done no one gives much attention if you are working from home/office.But then everywhere there are exceptions. Overall experience been good, the last 2 years of working with CGI and still continuing; this is pretty much sorted. Not to forget this motivates the member to do the job much more efficiently and on time as there is a responsibility of not giving anyone an excuse/reason to question. Eventually this servers the purpose of having a good work life balance that nothing gets implicated.
When work demands there is nothing called 9hrs job
CGI is a large company with a lot of processes that are out of date and make working difficult. The culture at CGI is one of "us against them". Teams don't work together and there is no feeling of togetherness. CGI only cares about the numbers which leads to a lot of unhealthy work environment traits - ie CGI informs members there is a lot of room for movement, however if a member is trained and good at what they do, it is very difficult to move to another position because of the monetary value now associated with the training that went into that one individual.
There are some really great pockets in CGI with good bosses and coworkers.
The business cares more about the numbers then the people.
