    Former Employee - Vice President in Toronto, ON
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at CGI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are good people there and you will establish great relationships. The company tries to care and has ‘values’ that some leaders strive to achieve by investing in their people

    Cons

    The organization’s focus on process and numbers prevents them taking care of their people. Unfortunately, the top-level pride in the success built on process prevents them from embracing their true asset - their people. The mindset is old-school and people are cut to ‘make the numbers’ instead of leveraging their people with innovation to ‘make the numbers’.

    Advice to Management

    What got you here isn’t going to get you there. Let go of what was successful in the 90’s and invite new thinking in to how the company can be great.
