CGI provides number of technical and behavioral training. Skill development depends on project to project. Politics is there same as other companies. Company provide laptops so you can work from home. Leave policies are quite good as all the leaves are credited in start of the year. Work environment is cool.

Dislikes

CGI gives good hike if you are coming as a lateral but once you join hikes are not good. Company is not having good projects as most of the projects are very old and will not provide you chance to work on new technologies. I did not hear any person went for onsite during my tenure with CGI so I dont feel there are good onsite opportunities. Cafeteria and other services are pathetic inside the company. Dress code policy is there and they are very strict on wearing formals.

Work

Work was quite boring. It was on completely old technologies like vb.net and sometimes classical .net. Most of the work was not at all related to development and more of miscellaneous task related to any application.

The company is open to innovation and adopts latest technology, but your growth is dependent on your project. If project work is too hectic, you won't be given a chance to explore new options or learn new technology.

Dislikes

Compensation is good but growth is slow. Again that's project dependent. The work pressure in my project was very high and i had worked 14-18 hours somedays. Managers do not value your strength, capabilities and sometimes neglect your contribution as well. Company is very good, but projects are based on managers or higher management of that project and therefore certain things are baised. Company culture is good, but you don't get time to know your colleagues.

Work

My work was hectic. It wasn't challenging in way of learning but the way projects were conducted. Always time crunch, poor planning and false promises to client to deliver a project early than the specified date. And i am speaking from my projects point

Best thing I like about CGI is there Culture. When I started my Job as ASE, I was happy in every Scenario. But I got switched to another project and unlucky me that I had suffered a lot in my last 1 year of work. There was no balance in life, no work satisfaction, Compensation or Management.

Dislikes

Because of my last project in CGI company I can say that I didn't like anything. But I had friends from different project also and they were quite happy with everything. So it depends on where exactly you are working and what kind of projects you are getting along with good team support.

Work

I started working as ASE, where I was working on C and Cobol decoding skills. I worked for 8 months in this project then I moved to Application Support Team where I was working as Java Debugger as well as with Shell scripting along with weblogic.

CGI is a good company if one wants to settle , the pressure level depends on the project where one is getting billed.

Dislikes

The biggest problem with CGI is lack of good projects to enable u to progress in ur career. Even if u r well conversant in particular technology high chances are there that u might not get work in that particular area of interest. Most of the projects here hardly have any productive work but during the appraisal time they question u about ur contributions even though u might not have taken a single vacation. The compensations are also decreasing day by day.

Work

Practically the project which I am working on is boring becoz it's purely support project. There are good projects also but it's all a factor of luck .

The company provides all necessary training to inhance skills and overall growth including technical and non technical. Because this is my first company I learnt a lot and got to know how IT company works. And If I am talking about my project team my all couligues are always very cooperative. They all from different states but still we all have good intereaction.

Dislikes

Sometimes work load is version high. I worked on festivals times when none of the team member was working. My manager did not consider my efforts during my appraisal.

Work

I worked as a tester so I have to deliver product with good quality. This is highly challenging because I have to keenly observed the application so that defects can be identified. I joined as a Fresher and learnt a lot that how tester works.

CGI is open to innovation and readily adopt latest technology. I love the the fact that i am the part of the team that market reliable,high quality products and has a global client base.Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various culture backgrounds and we work happily in collaboration. i also like the employee re-hire policy here.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent,but growth is slow. The work pressure is high. Some times i have to work 12-16 hours straight in a day.

Work

My work is slightly challenging as i have to look forward the changes from Development team each and every day and putting those changes to our environments to keep running smoothly. It will be great learning experience.

In the Beginning stage of CGI it was so good. With employee benefits. But not now. As they are getting cancelled one by one.

Dislikes

The employee benefits are getting cancelled one by one. And seems to be all the employee benefits will be cancelled at a point of time.

The current management of my team don’t take care of the junior employee, they put much pressure on them, hence they struggle a lot, and no proper training are given to the freshers to improve their technical skills. The current management try only to safe guard it self not the entire team. No Team work all plays a much politics.

I liked that I came out alive.

Dislikes

Its a 'Lala' company, no work culture, everything is done on ad-hoc basis. Late night working hours which lead to heath issues. CGI is least bothered about your well being, they will even pull you out of your death bed for there work. Employees are used till CGI feels they are needed & then will make a plot to throw them out. Full politics, its doesn't have a conducive environment for honest, hardworking person. Managers are incompetent.

Work

I worked in CGI for 1.5 years. I handled network infra of one of the client. Handling incidents, tickets, P1/P2 calls.

For Experienced(8 years and above) CGI is one of the best company, work life balance will be good.. no pressure very less work and good hike (minimum 10%) Job security will be there.. during our last days of IT CGI is the best place.. you will get CGI share which will be a good thing.

Dislikes

For Freshers it is terrible company.. No learning and skill development.. No new technologies.. career growth is very difficult.. if you are a person who is very much satisfied with what you get then CGI is good for you.. no work pressure.. moderate hike in salary..

Work

Boring work.. 93% of projects are support.
