      Pros

      Learning the consulting process ! Get to work for big clients !

      Cons

      You are mainly on your own with the client, CGI bills your service and give you little money while you've done all the hard work ! Account director doesn't care enough about you, sometimes you meet them once in 6 months or more.

      Politics and Favorism

      Feb 16, 2021 - Senior Consultant in Montreal, QC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You can advance if you are lucky. Great learning opportunity. Diverse and inclusion. Shares matching

      Cons

      Favoritism is played widely in the company, you will advance if you are liked regardless of the qualifications. Salaries are sub bar, also the insurance A legacy company that serves other legacy companies and hard to adopt new technologies. Advancement in this company is too little and too slow, they are of a mindset that you have to do the time before they can give you a chance to advance. Turnover is too high, talents tend to find out in the first couple of years they don't want to spend their career life in this company, so CGI ends up stuck with seniors that been there forever. A lot of talk about career development, but this is never transferred to reality. Good place if you are stuck, but if you have another choice go for it.
