    I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible timing and OKish HR policies. Some people were friendly.

    Cons

    Promotions were not good. Compensation is poor. The attitude of some of the managers is real poor. The HRs need to teach some of the managers to be polite. The level of people who were recruited was not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learning and development has to be the key especially for Consultants managing large teams. Some of them are into micro-managing which is very irritating. Trust level has to be increased.

    Pros

    Good for people who want to have a relaxed life.
    Work From Home is great advantage
    Compensation is good
    Employee Friendly

    Cons

    For Business Analyst, this company is a big NO.
    Vision of the CGI-India management is not clear.
    CGI-India works on slavery model. It is kind of back-office for CGI offices across Canada/US.
    Laid back approach.
    To get promoted, start one initiative with absolutely no meaning. Continue till appraisal then forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mainly, change the focus from being back-office to being delivery centre.

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Work from home option
    get to learn a lot of new things
    a very friendly and interactive environment

    Cons

    the only con I can think of is the take home salary, which is less compared to other companies. But they have other benefits like share purchase plan.
    You might get held up in the same project for a long long time
