We are team builders

Joining CGI gives you the opportunity to collaborate, build and succeed as part of a team of 70,000 professionals worldwide, serving 5,000 clients from hundreds of locations worldwide.

As one team, we share the challenges and rewards that come from building a world-class company and collaborate closely to share our knowledge and expertise. Our success is based on the competence, enthusiasm and commitment of our team, as we work together to bring the best of CGI to our clients.

For us, it’s more than a mission. We have a dream.

CGI, like most companies, has a mission, but we go a step beyond. We also have a company dream:

To create an environment in which our members enjoy working together and as owners, contribute to building a company they can be proud of.

We strive to create an environment where our professionals enjoy working together and feel empowered, as owners, to build their company and grow their careers.

Our professionals are more than employees.

From our founding, CGI has operated based on a strong belief that our success comes from the talent and commitment of our professionals. We view and treat them as more than just employees; we consider them company owners. In fact, we call our professionals “members” based on our philosophy of ownership and intrapreneurship. As owners, all members benefit from the value we collectively create, and most of us are CGI shareholders.

CGI's unique ownership programs, which reinforce this concept, include the following:

  • Share purchase plan: CGI will match your contributions dollar for dollar, up to a pre-determined maximum. Additional amounts corresponding to a set percentage of your salary also can be invested in CGI shares.
  • Profit participation plan: This plan distributes a portion of our profits to members based on the achievement of CGI’s growth objectives and takes into consideration individual performance.
