Boring but great place to learn
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 June 2018
Lots of opportunity to get involved with big enterprise projects. However, you may get lost (forgotten about) among large programs or initiatives.
You'll meet lots of people at this company - people who lied to get to where they are today, people who are too smart for their own good, people who are lazy, people who are helpful and people who you want to have on all your projects.

Some people work a few hours a day, some work most of the hours in a day. I think it's luck of the draw.
Pros
Good opportunities
Cons
Could get stuck on bad projects for years, could get stuck with terrible managers, boring, opportunity to get forgotten about

Par contre, il y est difficile de gérer une progression de carrière.

Moins d'emphase sur la progression de carrière

Moved the Western Canada Service Desk to Montreal
Help Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK19 April 2018
CGI made the decision to close the only CGI service desk in Western Canada and move it closer to head office in Montreal. While we were give notice of this and some assistance to improve resume, no real assistance was given help find work or try to find positions within CGI in Regina. For myself, this has resulted in me searching for work unsuccessfully for 9 months. This decision appears to have been made without looking at the possible impact it would have on current clients of the Regina Service Desk, only at the reduced operating expenses following the move.
Pros
Had some learning sources available, local management was good
Cons
Poorly managed from the top levels, little cost/benefit analysis when making decisions, paid below average

The place of work is very convenient for people living near the town of Shawinigan
Developpeur .NET (Former Employee) –  Shawinigan, QC6 January 2018
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.
