Worst company
Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC20 October 2018
Worst salary ever. 15$/h for bilingual person with computer skills.

Tim Horton offer a salary of 13$ right now.

As an employee, you're only a number.
I would not suggest to my baddest ennemy to work here. This is a big steal. Nobody deserve 15$/h salary when you speak two langs and have IT skills.

Most idiot company ever, don't work here, you will quit yourself after 3 months.

*alot of person in a team where im working is still waiting for higher salary (another role) since 4 months.

The only great thing in this company is insurance.
Pros
Can't find one
Cons
Salary is the same as Tim horton employee, cant work at home, 95% of person you answer will' not be chill with you since, no higher salary after 2 years, company steal your vacancy, worst salary

Not a great company for entry level employees

Its a job
Senior Consultant (Architect\PM) (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 September 2018
If you just want a job CGI is the place to be. Keep your head down you will be here for 30 years.

If you want to move around its easy. I was promoted in a year and have been offered another promotion starting Jan 1. (second year)

You are not going to get angry here You might get frustrated.

Its just a job nothing to get excited about

I would not recommend it for someone new to the industry.
But if you know what you are doing its ok.
Pros
Easy to hide if you want. If you want it take it.
Cons
Zero leadership. Zero guidance. Company culture is 1985

Not impressed with working culture
Senior Hybris Developer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC10 September 2018
Old methodologies are being followed e.g. too much attention is paid to when person comes and leaves. Wearing a tie as developer doesn't make sense to me.
Not define roles especially when it come higher management.
Upper management does gets to know what people actually need under them.

Great company to work for + great people to work with
Agile Coach & Scrum Master (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC3 September 2018
Great company to work for (and great people to work with) and in very comfortable workplace environments. They will support and encourage you learning and studying. Unfortunately they are not flexible to accommodate relocation of employees when employees need it.

Good Company Overall but Not Consistent Across Business Units
Full Stack Java Developer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 August 2018
Having been in the company for 9 years, I've moved from their Markham office to Calgary Office and went through a few different positions. In general, the company is growing very well under CEO Mike Roach. However my experience of working in Calgary and compared to Markham was very different. Each business unit is run differently and has its own issues. Calgary office had a small company feel with many close minded people. It has gone through few years of change, including outsourcing some work to India. In general the morale is not great.
Pros
Steady and flexible work
Cons
Pay is OK. Culture is nothing to be aspired for

Challenging work
Lead BA & PM (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 August 2018
Challenging work is offered
the most enjoyable part is the team work and support from immediate managers, in case of difficult situations.
Salary revisions are not very frequent and high remuneration disparity between co-workers leads to unhealthy environment.
Pros
Higher responsibilities are given
Cons
Low remuneration

Closed Regina office without considering impact on clients of this help desk
Help Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK3 July 2018
Closed help desk to move it to Montreal, as a result lost a very large contract the day before the this office was closed. This is an example of poor management on the part of upper management, only seeing the cost savings by moving rather than looking at the overall impact to the company.
