Professionalisme et valorisation des membres
Pilote de système (Former Employee) –  Québec City, QC14 August 2018
CGI fut sans nul doute le meilleur employeur pour lequel j'ai eu le plaisir de travailler. En plus d'offrir des salaires compétitifs et d'excellents avantages sociaux, l'environnement de travail convivial et la culture de l'entreprise font de cette firme un excellent employeur.
Pros

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.

They are good in the sense that they will try to find work for you when your client contract completes, but they aren't open and honest about the chances of finding you more work. They set expectations for you and cannot deliver.

Bull work environment

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

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
