      Pros

      You will always be respected Better learnings in initial phase

      Cons

      Do not expect much pay hike unless you are promoted. It is all in the hands of managers & directors to decide on your hike no matter how hard you work. Work life balance isn't there is many projects and you are expected to be available for atleast 15-16hrs. You receive onsite opportunity but will not receive hike because of it and travel process atleast takes 2 + years. Market standards are being followed in salary but not in amount of work.

      Pros

      Those who wish for a comfort zone and want to want to work on legacy projects and can expect profit share bonus, performance bonus and hike depends on project performance etc...

      Cons

      No documentation of legacy projects, support lame testing, hidden knowledge of some components only known to few employees. Very few development opportunities, less exposure to tech stacks. Managers blindly expects the delivery without any KT or doc.

      Pros

      Awesome Culture Flexibility Good Benefits HR policies - Best practices in the market Strong Management and Leadership team Work-Life balance CSR Activities Not here to just rub my opinion, any company has its own pros and cons. I wanted to be really open and genuine here. Been with the company for almost 1.5 years. CGI as a whole is a cool company to work with; A great place for freshers to start. Also for senior and mid-senior employees. Business is good with strong pipeline HRBP team is very supportive and employee friendly. Policies are in place and practice. Senior Management is cool and open. COVID care is a great initiative🙏

      Cons

      Need projects with Emerging technologies Need more employer branding in Indian markets Lengthy processes sometimes Manual work in some functions (automatic is happening though) Still a lot more can be improved ( it’s a dynamic world :))

      there are nothing much as of Cons but i do believe that anyone who joins should get a good salary and come to this company as they might not see any hike more than 8% for years to come.
