You'll have a balanced work/life as a CGI employee. It's easy to talk to management and they're pretty much responsive when you need them to be. People are very nice and friendly and try their best to help new members. Decent benefit, lots of fun events and a lot of useful training courses.

Good company but management group at senior levels for division provided conflicting priorities at times.
Fast paced and hectic. Supports work life balance but in reality you are pretty much forced to work long stressful hours to maintain client satisfaction. Benefits are good.
CGI (GTO) division has taken a huge step back in Executive leadership over the last two years. Executives are disconnected from its employees, annual reviews are trivial and at times have nothing to do with your actual performance, its merely seen by management as required paperwork. Employees have now been mandated to work from the office moving from a work from home model contrary to other IT service delivery organzations. Annual staff reductions, are targeted as re-orgs when in fact CGI likes to see a 10% turnover rate and employees in their late 50's seem to be the targets. The work week is 40 hours not 37.5 as per the norm. Work life balance is poor and demands are high. Client abuse is the norm chaulked up to well "they're the client".
Poor career path
Worked two rounds at CGI, each time it was a permanent Full time position and got laid off after sitting on Bench without enough projects or none. Fairly Decent staff to work with, but management can be favourable depending on the group you are in. Overall it is a good place to learn and move on...
Overall a good company. The pay is good and so is the benefit. But the premium for the long term disability is insanely high. I don't know why and am not sure what percentage of employees used it. 1%? I don't know. The career path for non-technical employees is very clear, and seems much easier to achieve, compared to the care path for the technical employees. The care path for technical employees however is also clear but is very hard to achieve. For more than 95% developers, Senior Consultant will be the title of their whole lifetime. There is almost no salary increase; and bonus? what is that?
Good pay and benefit; work life balance.
Career development for technical employees is very hard.
An average I.T. company with nothing outstanding to speak of. Pride in work was difficult if not impossible due to nature of internal client relationship and a lack of service level commitments between internal business lines. Compensation was fair but processes were dirty. Management was constantly changing and rarely inspiring. Looking back I should have left sooner but my colleagues were largely the single reason that I stayed as long as I did. I would still recommend this employer due to it's growth/global success and if only to gain experience.
I was only employed there on a temporary basis so I don't have enough experience to give a review that would be considered meaningful. From the short time I did work there however, the company seems to be solid in regards to the staff and management.
A typical day at work would include several daily tasks and any additional requests that may come in later. I've learned quite a bit at CGI; I learned how to run scripts, manage files on the sever, reset password, and many other technically related tasks. The management was great, if I ever needed help all i needed to do was ask and they were super friendly about it. The hardest part of the job is when a task is under investigation and clients need the end results immediately while other issues are being raised. The most enjoyable part of the day is having friendly staffs making the environment more enjoyably satisfying.
High pay, growth, and flexible lunch hours
Short staffed, long meetings, and sitting at workstation for hours
I have worked two rounds at CGI....Expect the lay off AX any time during your stay at CGI. They call it company wide re-structuring when they lay off good knowledgeable staff who worked hard. On the other side they hire staff from Off-shore...due to cheap labour. It is an ongoing process. At CGI staff say "you are good as today" your tomorrow at CGI is questionable. Think twice before getting on board. The good old staff left CGI long ago...or being laid off. Lots of new comers with No experience are now running the show. The management are happy as long as they get their pay cheque being deposited twice a month. Good-Luck CGI. Keep hiring OFF-SHORE....
CGI is a good place to start at but not a good place to stay. If you are looking for advancement go somewhere else after max 2 years. Pay is terrible, raises very small. When I worked at the CGI office, if I turned to talk with someone about anything not work related the team lead would put a quick stop to it (sorry but should be able to talk to fellow employees). The worked me like a dog, no down time allowed When I work at client site it is much better atmosphere as you get to live that company culture. Still no matter how much the client likes you it is not reflected in your yearly reviews. (the reviews have no impact on your income)
Management treats employees like dogs
it really depends on which team you are on, the team I was coop at had the most open minded manager, with the most dynamic team member, people are willing to listen to new ideas and try them out.
team lunch sometime
overtime is needed, but personally i dont think this is a con.
A lot of opportunities in CGI which you can grow your career. I have learned a lot and gained very good experience in CGI. But the job is not secure since you have to look for the job all the time from one project to the next project.
challege and good opportunites
job is not secure
