      Not over worked , employees well cared for at senior levels although I've heard that at lower levels there is less care

      Cons

      You're a little cog in a big company. Effecting and driving good change across the company is a non starter

      Great company to work for overall

      Feb 15, 2021 - Project Manager in London, England, England
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      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.

      Pros

      Great apprencticeship schemes that give young people a huge variety of projects all across the UK in a variety of industries and sectors. Very flexible working and ability to be mobile in all types of roles. If you work hard and speak up/ be friendly and confident, you will be recognised for your work. For such a large company, the org-structure is at a healthy flat line (but not too flat...). Always exciting to find out more more aquisitions and new clients with very interesting and techincal challenges that CGI is willing to take on.

      Cons

      Sometimes can feel a little too big of a company, and too far spread with local offices not having a sense of community - this creates a difficult environement for new starters and those looking to change to different projects as they might be left behind in the gaps. As a young employee, it is hard to have a mixture of experience - e.g. wanting technical and PM expereince. The company is changing with the relitively new UK SBU President but the company overall is still overly Corporate, in a market and industry that doesn't necessarily need to be - less and less major clients are seeking for a Corporate look/dress code/culture as it does not relate to quality of service or talent - .... yet, CGI is begging for more young and creative Techies at the front of new ideas to join - Overall though - 4/5 stars - (just a shame about that last star though)
