The work place is very convenient for people living near the town of Shavinigan. I lived in Montreal and worked in shawinigan. So I had to either rent an apartment and live in shawinigan from Monday to Friday, or ride every day for about 180 km to one side. I tried to do it during the summer season. I found this uncomfortable for me.
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 April 2017
Raises were infrequent. Usually had a re-org in Sept (fiscal year-end) Stock purchase was a good deal they match you up to 3%. Depending on the project days could be very long. Clients were varied and we provided their IT Dept. Most of the people I worked with were knowledgeable and easy to get along with.
Benefit flexability and Health Spending account. Stock purchase plan
Unix System Consultant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 April 2017
CGI is the first North America company I worked with after I immigrated from Japan to Canada in 1996. When I first get to Canada and started looking for a job, almost all the company asked me: "Do you have Canadian experience". easy question, kind of hard for me to answer. The four years' experience at CGI help me to get established in Canada, a great company!
Kinesiologist Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 12 April 2017
This placement was a good introduction to everything you can do with Kinesiology in terms of health and fitness, health promotion, ergonomics. I learned a lot, and not every day is the same which allows for a lot of variety.
it is a better company to work for people who does not worry about spending time with the family.The employees are shown to the client like warriors but in reality the employees are slaves who does not have other choice than work work work finally get half a peanut as yearly increment or do 40 hours of overtime a week and not get paid or time off. All the
you have a job
Employees are treated as slaves, Management need to go back to school
Senior Consultant Incident management center (IMC) (Current Employee) – Chicoutimi, QC – 15 February 2017
I enjoy my job, I enjoy the related tasks and the team I am working for.
But the moral is very low, there is too much politics internal politics ongoing and consultants feel like numbers. Depending on the management, there is not much implication model ongoing, feeling like a consultant is far from the manager.
I am fortunate to have a job where I can work from home some times and it is positive, and a relief from the heavy air at the office.
Possibility of a work from home post. Workload is ok
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 August 2016
Not a place I would recommend. I don't feel valued, and it's often reiterated that you're lucky to have a job. I often go above and beyond, and am not recognized for it. The pay hasn't gone up in several years.
You get the general feeling that you are only a number rather than an employee. I have run into many former employees from CGI throughout my employment career, and they all seem to share stories of the same unpleasant employment experience.
IT Project Manager of Operations (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 18 May 2016
CGI great company to work for if you are looking to work in IT I would recommend to anyone, good people and very knowledgeable. The down side people promoted is only chosen my favoritism, that is the reason I left CGI
