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 !

Management is not good here, everyone from the project feels like a manager and the manager thinks he is a CEO of the company. No career growth and salary increment. They dont have good clients, mostly POC kind they will do and later they look for a client. Logica is a good company which is very employer friendly which is acquired by CGI, later all processes and management change is clearly impacted.
Pros
Only work life balance
Cons
Management is not good, No salary increment for outsiders
