    Pros

    Good benefits. Continuous projects. If you are settled with a client, it would be for many years to come. Flexible environment.

    Cons

    Salary is a big minus. Doesn't care much about the employees. Excuses for everything an employee asks by quoting their policies etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people, not resources.

    Staffing issues, not much say on which projects you can get on, projects can last a long time, lack of training opportunities, lack of strong office culture

    Pros

    like any consulting company this review is specific to the practise (SAP in my case) you are part of.
    General work life balance is good, people get promoted although sometimes based on seniority, some exceptionally good guys are always there and if you can get hands on people from other countries like European ones, you can get exposed to some great work.

    Cons

    Cross country integration is poor
    Training is average, people are not top tier

    Pros

    Sizeable, interesting projects. Management straight-forward and easy to deal with. Staff competent.

    Cons

    too much travel and overtime. You are essentially working like a contractor. No idea when a project finishes if you will be retained on bench or not and where / what your next project is going to be. You are not really working for Capgemini, that is only on paper. You are working for an Indian company called Kanbay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone knows that you are hiring just for a specific vacancy and the rest of ones tenure is based on who one knows, not what one knows. Performance reviews are barely even lip service.
