Canadian Proposal Managers at CGI
Senior Consultant - Proposal Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 April 2015
There's never a typical day as a Proposal Manager at CGI. The projects change weekly, bi-weekly and bi-monthly. Employees are called Members which is to ensure that members of the company feel tied to the company's personality and results. The most challenging part of this job in Canada is the high-stress role and orientation to deadlines. Project deadlines must be set and met. Individuals need to have a high degree of patience and stress tolerance to be able to compete and complete projects on time. Overall the company is a leader in Canada, and has some great people. The company has a long standing list of managers which were promoted within - this is a double edged sword. The good news is, CGI insiders or members with history are kept and keep climbing the corporate ladder; on the backside of this picture is poor management education. Few to minimal Canadian Manager at GIS Canada possess an MBA or higher management education. As a result, GEN-Y culture within the company is low and the employee turnover is quite high. New talent is always being sought.
Pros
Work from home, Flexible hours, independence, career progression
Cons
High stress, poor management education in Canada, solitary

Poor management workplace
IT consultant (Former Employee) –  Montreal quebec24 July 2015
I worked 4 years in CGI Montreal IT department
Poorly managed from an employee perspective, compensation below market, no room for advancement. Duties increase, salary does not. No concrete training accepting every job anytime from clients, but not time to properly train the employees, only eyes on money and save costs.
And every good politics to save money, overtime not paid, yes they said it is their politic to save it (bank it ) up to 40h then your manager will ask you to take time off, you will be force to work statutory holidays and never get paid all you will get is a random day off. The salary is way below the industry standard, 16$/h while Desjardin, TD, Deloitte employees doing the same job were 25$/h
No carrier advancement for non-white, yes I said, if you are real Quebecois you get your way easily, and all the good comments are from them because they advance and get everything for less effort. From My VP, director, manager none of them had an university degree, but the employees had a Bsc to Msc. You have to know someone there to advance, a lot of family member of the VP were working there with no IT degree but were advancing at the speed of light.
After 3 years most of my colleagues got depress and were on medical leave, including me.

Team environment was very good (among colleagues, and my last manager was good too, the previous was horrible)
I hope this will help you
Pros
CGI as a whole is a good company, nice team environment
Cons
Low wage, poor management in my department

CGI est une excellente compagnie en Technologies de l'information.
Chef de Service (Former Employee) –  1350 Boul. Rene Levesque West, Montreal, Qc,29 March 2016
En 1998, CGI a fait l’acquisition des systèmes informatiques de Bell Canada, auparavant gérés par Bell Sygma Solutions Telecom. Il y a eu une grande difference de culture mais la transition s'est fait graduellement et équitablement.
Pros
Flexibilite dans les heures de travail quotidienne.
Cons
Reconnaissance, surcharge de travail.

Environnement de travail acceptable
Analyste financier (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC31 March 2013
La moitié du mois, nos journées se suivent et se ressemblent. Avec des livrables typiques d'une entreprise publique, les fins de mois sont errassante. Surtout, on ne peut pas prendre de vacances pendant ces semaines. Deplus, le traffic est abondant et les places de stationnement rare.
Le management, n'est pas assez motivant.
Le plus difficile est de réaliser que finalement, l'entreprise a le contrôle de nos vies
Le plus agréable, ce sont mes collègues.
Pros
food court au rez de chaussée est des cours de gym dans l'entreprise
Cons
l'avancement est difficile

Environnement de travail varié et agrable
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Québec, QC8 December 2014
Travail chez le client en tant que support de service à la clientèle ( équipe administrative médicale), création de certificats numérique sur le poste d'accès au dossier santé Québec. Généralement le travail se fait dans les locaux du client.
Un travail d'équipe est sollicité, pour résoudre au plus rapidement les problème rencontrer par les utilisateurs du Dossier Santé Québec.
L'aspect difficile est certainement le fait d'expliquer aux utilisateurs les termes et les droits d'accès légal pour protéger la vie privée des patients qui les consultent.
L'aspect agréable du poste, est la variété des tâches, le travail dans un environnement agréable et amicale, le travail d'équipe, le fait de pouvoir améliorer le service offert pour optimiser leur travail.
Les mandats sont différents et apporte de nouveau défi, et permet une adaptation et apprentissage continue
Pros
Frais de déplacement payer
Cons
difficulté à devenir permanente

Trop gros...
Programmeur analyste (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC28 August 2015
Trop gros... et oublie le côté humain de la chose. Pensent seulement aux profits et non à l'évolution des membres. Il faut toujours aller en entrevues...
