Dynamic Event coordinator
Administrative Coordinator, Global Communications (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 September 2014
A typical day at work would be to begin the day with team meetings to discuss upcoming events, communications, presentations, etc. for the President that had to be addressed and coordinated.

I learned to become a team player and developed leadership skills during the time I was there. I was given the opportunity to share my ideas and intentions to improve the company development.

I worked with fantastic, dynamic colleagues that made my work environment very pleasant.
Pros
Shareholder of company and great benefits
Cons
Large teams that prevented Mgmt to meet with employees

Co-workers were great
Computer Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 September 2014
Our company was taken over by CGI Group and the pay and benefits were on par with other companies at the time. They were very flexible on what time you arrived as long as you put in a full day which was nice on those days that you just wanted to sleep in. The corporate culture was difficult to navigate as they expected the employees to make up any work time missed during natural disasters or take it as unpaid or vacation. Overall I had a good experience due to the quality of the co-workers I was able to work with every day.
Pros
Great co-workers, flexible times, possible work from home
Cons
Corporate culture

Siloed organization that stifles creativity and value generation
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB4 September 2014
This organization is not just siloed by tiers, but the tiers actively fight and compete with each other in front of the client. Knowledge is rarely transferred effectively and a steady stream of people passing through roles make solving even simple problems more rigorous and difficult than they should be.

As an independent consultant, you may have a different experience altogether as some friends have stayed with CGI for some time. If you are working for an IT-outsourced client and intend to stay within your job description, this organization may provide you with a good fit.
Pros
Work flexibility offered and considered as needed
Cons
Requests for training go unanswered and unfulfilled
