    I worked at CGI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a IT shop, so don'e be surprised to feel like a line item on someone's financial report. They want to to bill. As long as you are OK with that, they have OK benefits and some social activities.

    Cons

    Your sole purpose is to be billable. Very depersonalizing at times. The work can be challenging.
