Senior Technical Team Leader assisting Manager (Current Employee), Montréal, QC – August 29, 2013
Pros: great stability and great core values.
Cons: low salaries, outsoursing, no advancement.
A typical day at work for me consists of emails, conference calls, projects, managing sla's, KPI's, and managing my employees. CGI has an excellent structure and was a terrific learning experience for me in many aspects. To me communication is a very important aspect to succeed as a manager and i am very keen on this with my employees on a daily basis.
Administrative Assistant - E-Business (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – January 22, 2014
Pros: working with professionals
Cons: leaving to get married
A typical work day for me varied greatly. I supported the VP of Marketing but I also assisted in getting new US clients in the company. I attempted the liaison between two groups that were merged into our very own 5 team members. I learned how to look at challenges and tackle them. I learned how to deal with different types of individuals and deal with – more... discretion as well as creating a team. I truly had a difficult time leaving this workplace and most likely would not have had I not met my husband at this time. The most enjoyable part of the job was to be respected by my peers and being able to help and do a good job. – less

Senior system analyst (Former Employee), Toronto – August 16, 2013
Cons: poor management
I have been IT professional for the last 18 years. CGI was the worst employer I ever worked for. Pay was good, but the communications and management were extremely poor. I wanted to leave the company after the first few weeks. It may be good place to start with, but If you are experienced IT professional, do not waste your time there,
Java Developer (Former Employee), Markham – July 23, 2013
Pros: good for work and learning
Cons: politics and other uncontrollable factors
The position and work environment is very good, but the upper managements are not doing so well, they like play politics, compete with each other and as a result, messed up some of the big ongoing project. Project went bad, the department lost the project, lost the client, project got scrapped, upper managements resigned, then a new guy come in to take – more... over, and he just let half the people in the floor just so he could make the net income look nicer on the quarterly report, only to prove to the higher bosses that he can fit into the new shoes. – less

Process Improvement (Former Employee), Toronto – March 6, 2013
Pros: good if you like working for a large entity that moves you to different locations.
Cons: no increases, management dubious, no assistance to move ahead in career.
Overall, your work day is your average work day. Management is always changing, and overall have little contact with anyone. Relationships are a secondary aspect in my view. Co workers are fine, but can tell they too are unsure about CGI. Very little room for aggressive movement and promotion. Status quo. Management does lead people on (destroys morale). No – more... progressive increases (actually they manipulated the time/numbers so people earned LESS) – less
