1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

10/10

I am a junior business consultant. ToR - haha whats that? I would say that 20% of my current activities are listed in my ToR. however, the breadth and depth of experience I have gained is excellent for a 21 year old.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

10/10

yes my interpersonal skills have improve4d greatly, also my understanding of the more technical domains is also something that I have been pleased to progress.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

I enjoy it a lot, however, we could do with more set time to complete uni work, for example, working 3 days per week studying one, and allocated a separate day to get on with other work for study.

4. How valued do you feel by CGI?

4/10

it depends, in general, I ifeel like a number. However there a some managers who I get on well with and are appreciative of my student position. however they wont hesitate to work me to the bone.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

it is arranged well. [This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyApprenticeship Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions] is an exceptional leader. However, there are few checks and balances which prove that students are not overworked in their day job. an area I would like to see improved.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

8/10

I receive all the support I need from the university in order to complete the work to the best of my ability. I would hope so too given that other students pay 9 grand a year for the privilege.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

4/10

I feel this could be improved from a work basis. the company don't hesitate to get rid of people who underperform. yet they don't stop managers piling on the work. [This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyApprenticeship Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions] is helpful, but projects vary.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

6/10

how well does it meet the effort I put in.. it doesn't. however I am able to claim expenses which doesn't leave me out of pocket. however the mileage rate is more than questionable.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

7/10

yes - but there were more before CGI took over, I used to play football for the company but now this has ceased. I would like to see more activities and events funded by the company.

9. Would you recommend CGI to a friend?

No

9b. Why?

The package isn't what I signed up to. I never expected to be under such pressure day on day. also, te graduates who haven't worked for CGI for 3 years start on the same wage as us after 3 years. not fair.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to CGI?

brepared to work [This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyApprenticeship Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions] hard. often for long hour and sometimes little thanks. you have to turn down tasks if you don't want to go into a melt down.
