Graduate Developer/ Analyst in Manchester, Greater Manchester
on 1 November 2022
Graduate Consultant
Lack of guidance, lack of training, lack of progress, lack of projects for inexperienced employee. I'm riding on my perception of CGI to help my career after leaving CGI. I'm expected to do all learning on my own. The experienced capable hands that I've dealt with (colleagues who have been in the industry for 30+ years) have very little time for new comers. This company is great if you're looking to become some sort of manager, or looking to learn how to become completely self dependant.

Great workplace.
A great company to work for with great,friendly workforce who helped me though everything from day to day. I enjoyed chatting to fellow CGI members in a day to day basis as I hadn't seen some of my colleagues for 2 years due to the Covid 19 pandemic and also being on reception desk dealing with all office issues that arouse from day to day.

Stimulating and varied
As a consultant you tend to move from project to project across different clients so the work is varied and challenging. Other CGI colleagues are generally very capable and there is a strong ethic of professionalism within the consulting staff.

Fully inclusive company making everyone feel welcome and part of the family.Decent package that includes significant training discounts and provision of learning materials to progress technical skills and achieve industry recognised qualifications.
IT Service Desk Analyst in Bridgend, Bridgend
on 24 July 2022
Terrible Management, Terrible Training and Worse Culture
You spend the first 4 weeks on the yellow brick road being sold something fantastic when you get to the Service Desk your quality of training is substandard and poor.The uninspired trainers worked their best however Management were not helpful, unresponsive and had a complete and utter disregard for the staff.The place operated on a Policy of One Rule for you and another rule for someone else.Management wouldn't authorize working from home if you were based in the office to just cover a MOT or Car Repairs. They didn't give a hoot beyond it's not their problem despite they would happily provide full permanent remote worker contracts to other employees.Whenever you had a HR issue or needed something to be actioned by Manager, good luck it would take anywhere from 1-6 weeks for them to get off Candy Crush on a Secure "No Phones" Zone to actually look into your request.Quite regularly you'd see alot of emails about people leaving the company for higher paying roles for better companies.The benefits are a joke to how much you're underpaid by the company.The company also loved to talk about how it was going to be a GREEN company and carbon neutral however I knew multiple people that lived 50-150 miles away from the office and were still being expected to attend the office when others were able to stay at home.If anything is ever done wrong or you've made a mistake, don't expect it to be taken lightly or for you to be retrained on the millions of rules and regulations that you must adhere to, you'll get a message on teams and quite inconsiderate emails in bright red font basically telling you that you're a [fill in the blank here].If you're ever unlucky enough to work begin working here, goodluck. You won't have any information regarding your probation infact you'll just get randomly told 8 months down the line they are sacking you or that you're a permanent member.There's plenty of proceedures in place that are there to provide the information however its never updated, there's never anything that give you a clear cut answer as the management are too busy giving their best friends promotions so that they can climb even higher within the organisation.
