ProsGood development experience, exposure to new technologies
Flexible work timings and good cab facility

Good hike

ConsWork starts only at Canada time that is by evening IST so hampers work life balance
Less client interaction unless you are very much experienced in the project as there is a team sitting in CGI canada to do client interactions
CGI India and CGI Canada will act as competitors
Less onsite

Advice to Senior ManagementStop competing with CGI Canada after all its the same company
Stop bluffing people about onsite opportunities
Plan for good onsite opportunities
Distribute work among people so that people who work doesnt end up working all the time!
