Agood place to work, the people are the best, a gym in building.

Installing mainframe products for clients. Supporting clients, and debugging client problems.
Please refer to my resume for courses I have taken and what I have learned.
As I montioned above the people I worked with are the very best, they are helpful and frinndly.
The hardest part of the job was being on call.
Go to work every day.

I really enjoyed working with CGI Adjusters. I would prepare and type out reports/legal forms from dictation.

File, photocopy, fax, courier and do reception duties as well. Everyday was a learning opportunity as reports and files varied everyday.

My co-workers were fantastic and family like.
Pros

Too large
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 May 2015
At CGI you're not an employee, you're a number. Managers were all out for themselves and would happily throw you under the bus to save their own hide. Rewards for working nights and weekends, otherwise you're a slacker. Don't work there unless you have to.
