    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Victoria, BC

    I worked at CGI full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Because its a consulting company there is a positive environment and everyone has people skills. If you get a good team, it can be a great experience. I loved my first project and my first team.

    Cons

    Sometimes people skills take precedence over technical skills for hiring decisions, management will only support you if its convenient for them, when the contract you are on is up, they will only keep you on the bench for a few months so there is not much stability. They will rarely invest in training. Lots of turnover for these reasons.
