Senior Program Analyst (Former Employee), Fairfax, VA – January 1, 2014
You have a job when they have a project. If not, good luck. This company depends heavily on federal projects. If you don't have security clearance of any kind, better try other company or else there will not be many projects you can work on.
Poor employer if you are consulting / client sites
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
Project Delivery Officer (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 6, 2013

Cons: did not have a permanent desk
4 months as a PDO reporting to Program Manager providing project support tasks for 2 accounts.
Typical tasks: - Creating weekly defect reports that illustrated the progress of the testing stage and identified areas of risk that required immediate attention. - Preparing client presentation packages on a daily basis; updating project statuses, creating – more... reports as requested by client or manager, communicating with client about project issues - Attend meetings with internal and external executives, preparing and distributing meetings minutes to participants - Providing daily project support to my team as well as other tiers
My prject team at CGI consisted of friendly and hard working managers, often worked along other tiers and managers.
Hardest part of the job was also the most enjoyable and rewarding which was that it was often times unpredictable, client-centric and overall, required results-driven attitude to get things done on short-notice. – less
productive and a learning experience, able to advance in company
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Burnaby, BC – September 5, 2012
Was always a productive day in the office, multi tasking and always learning new techniques to the job. Working with co-workers pulling together team work. Taking initiative to helping others in the office to get the job done.
Agood place to work, the people are the best, a gym in building.
