    amazing work culture , flexible environment , CGI shares system is amazing you can earn a very good amount of money

    if you want to settle down in IT industry then this is best company to retire but don't expect good opportunities over there

    3. They pay the entire bonus amount.
    4. Employee Friendly company with healthy work life balance.
    5. It's a company where you would like to retire

    Cons

    1. You will feel stagnant over there and there would not be much learning opportunity.
    2. No good training.
    3. Lower salary hike and don't expect promotion

    Advice to Management

    In India, despite having more than 10K employee, the company has it's presence only in Hyderabad, Bangalore & Chennai and a very small office in Mumbai. They should increase their presence in North India as well. I left the organisation for this simple reason that the company don't have any presence in North India.
