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

    Pros

    - Great work-life balance - Fair treatment of all employees - Plenty of diversity where CGI will happily accept individuals of disabilities and ethnic backgrounds - Flexible work schedule (depending on project and manager) - Stable company to work for. Their finances mean that they don't often offer redundancies - A lot of employees have been working there for 20-45 years, which says it's a good company to work for

    Cons

    - Promotion process is terribly long and pay raises could be better. -- You need to be put forward by your staff manager if they think you're eligible. -- The nitty-gritty starts off with having to fill out too many forms on an internal system which seems like a tick-box activity -- Having to present your case to 5-6 individuals where you have 10 minutes to pitch -- Having to wait 6+ weeks for the decision of whether you'll get promoted -- If you are promoted, based on your upon your performance score, you'll then be given a raise in salary which ranges from 2-10%. You've done really well if you get 10% - Promotion process means that your salary increment (raise) is only counted in the next financial year -- If you have put yourself in a position to go for 2 promotions within a year, you'll have to wait for the following year (January) to see the effect on your salary.
