Decent place to work with
Java Developer (Former Employee), MarkhamJuly 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

Consultant (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 23, 2013
Pros: it pays me a salary
Cons: it has no clue how to deal with its employees
Great co-workers but the company does not know how to benefit from its employees. If you are marketable then you are good to them, otherwise, they do not invest in the employee.

Extremely Poor Management
Developer (Former Employee), Fredericton, New BrunswickMarch 21, 2013
Pros: some great co-workers
Cons: the worst mgmt, no training, bad orientation, cultural differences, no job security, not much bench period and fake reviews
If you do not know or have:
- How to play politics
- Have a skill no one else does (don't share it)
- Power over someone
You're not safe. Do not count getting raises, advances or keeping your job.

Poor employer if you are consulting / client sites
Process Improvement (Former Employee), TorontoMarch 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

Fast paced and diverse IT consulting firm
Project Delivery Officer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 6, 2013
Pros: dynamic, friendly co-workers
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

The hardest part of the job was being on call.
Go to work every day.
