      You get what you deserve

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Large company with an enormous range of resources. Virtually any skill is available to any project. Remote work is completely acceptable. You can have promotions in any skill that you may desire. There is a desire for CGI to expand into new technologies so you can hone your skills to match. AI, cloud, blockchain and distributed services are all going to be a big part of CGI's future. Pattern your skillset to fit in there. Unlimited self-paced training is available. Formal instruction, including certifications, is completely doable.

      Cons

      You can be assigned to dead end roles that help the company but might stagnant your career. Being a self-starter, comfortable with self-paced learning, is a way forward. If you identify a role that you want, you can gain skills that help you get that role. You might have a hard time getting your manager on side to move you to your desired role. Make a transition plan, (50-50 time on each role), and discuss it with your manager. The two of you can establish a reasonable timeline that addresses your existing project's needs while giving you a path upward.

    3. 2.0

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Fast learning - Great collegues from different backgrounds - Fun at work - Some great benefits (ESPP, Insurance, etc.)

      Cons

      - Low pay (based on industry average) - Big company, so employees are (literally) a number - Lot of micromanagement and politics - Unable to move between the company's different offices. (For the little story, I had to move to another city for personal unavoidable reasons, they told me I couldn't get transfered, even when I offered it while handing my resign letter. I was offered a transfer 2 days before the end of my notice, but it was now too late, had another position somewhere else.)

    4. 1.0
      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Management more worried about what individuals do on an hourly basis

      Jul 25, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Halifax, NS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Great place to work to do some cool stuff. 2. You get to meet some people with awesome knowledge and you learn a lot.

      Cons

      1. Management more worried about what individuals do on an hourly basis 2. Too much micro management especially if you are Technical Lead kind of a role need to keep sending updates to management on literally hourly/daily basis. 3. Plus if the teams are collaborating between US and Canada, management creates further friction by sharing risk and impediments to the development centre that owns the product on a daily basis.
