Productive and fun place to work
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS12 December 2018
A good company to work with. The management is good and the work culture is good as well. Learning curve depends on the project that you are being allocated.

Not the best place to work
Financial Administrator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 December 2018
Overloaded with work in a typical work day
Always self learning, management is not fair
Different cultures and favoritism
The hardest part of the job is not getting the recognition for a job well done.
The most enjoyable part of the job is feeling fulfil when completing tasks at the end of the day
Pros
There are some collegues that are nice to work with
Cons
Long work hours

Sent us home, then brought us back 6 years later, no compensation
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 December 2018
Raises and bonuses are few and far between. Sent us home to telecommute in 2012 so not to pay us a raise. Brought us back full time in 2018 with no compensation. Too many regulations and constantly changing policies based on the management of the month.
Pros
None anymore
Cons
Pretty much everything now.

This company gave me a better opportunity. However, the account that we are handling was dissolved already. This is why the reason I am looking for a permanent job.

La pire compagnie en informatique au monde
gestionnaire technique (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 November 2018
Aucune formation sur les technos.
Heures supplémentaires non payées, non remboursées, mais bien chargé au client
Direction agressive, insultante, harcelante, bulliante, non-reconnaissante

Crisse le monde à la porte, pas parce qu'ils travaillent mal, mais parce qu'ils arrivent dans le haut de l'échelle. Les mets en disponibilités pour ne pas avoir a payer les primes de séparation et demande du BS corporatif au gouvernement pour avoir des subvention de salaire et de formation qu'il ne donne pas.
Pros
Après avoir travaillé là, toutes les autres cie sont le paradi
Cons
tout ce que vous pouvez penser de négatif sur un milieu de travail existe ici

Hassle place for consultant
Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 October 2018
Working for many agencies but I found CGI is the worse one I have ever worked for. So many things you need to do for their administration. Every week you need to submit timesheet online plus additional thing they ask for. It's very stressful in which you have to remember the date you submit the forms, timesheet etc. It seems like you are being bullied when you are working for them. I hope you understand what I said here
Pros
N/A. I'm still looking for it
Cons
Security login system, so many timesheets have to submit in different date and time, hard to communicate with them

Not a great company for entry level employees

The company needs to review its training of new graduates.
Management can do better in terms of assigning trainers and assigning appropriate assignments.

Very high expectations from graduates without proper training.

Work Life Balance, Brand Name
Cons
Politics, training

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.

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.
