    Pros

    Good Entry Level Experience

    Cons

    If one is not Indian, they may not be comfortable with the management style and corporate philosophy within the Financial Services Division, so the employee should try to work for an alternate business unit or Sogetti..

    Pros

    Smart people, diverse work and friendly co-workers, depending on the office you are assigned to. Depending on your area of expertise, travel may be minimal.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as disposable commodities and, unless you have connections, it is extremely hard to advance once's career.

    Advice to Management

    If the company culture does not change, it will be impossible to retain top talent and to deliver top work.

    Pros

    Nothing that was positive to say.

    Cons

    The so called practice is not a practice at all. A practice is defined as a group of people that is organized around a central theme with communications and objective. I was a serior manager in the practice one of 3 or 4 (not sure how many there were because there was never any communication on the practice. In 7 months there was never a practice meeting, a group call or anything else. There were no stated objectives, nothing.... The project I was on was just as bad. It was run by non SFDC personnel, planned for by non SFDC personnel, and there were two senior managers on the project from SFDC that were functioning as business architects. We were excluded from working on the things you would think a senior person should work on: SOWs, Plans, etc... Non of it happened.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure as I think it this is a systemic issue that runs through Capgemini. I saw nothing in the time I spent with Cap to be contrary to the idea that something was different outside of the SFDC practice.

    Pros

    relaxed work atmosphere. nice people. Like someone else said, you can relax for years without getting noticed or even held accountable.

    Cons

    direction lacking. disconnected leadership running in silos. no alignment with mothership in france.

    Advice to Management

    competition is kicking your behind in every segment. Get aggressive

    Pros

    There are many open positions due to low organizational morale. As a result you may have the opportunity to work on the project of your choice.

    Cons

    Highly political organization. Not result or merit based. Due to poor group financial results, for the amount of work you put in you could get paid much better elsewhere.

    Pros

    A lot of young, dynamic people work here.

    Opportunity to travel / work / live abroad is very good.

    Cons

    Career path left totally up to you. Great if you are strong willed enough to do it all yourself, sucks if you can't schmooze internally.

    Lack of quality clients. Too many that want something for nothing and ask you to spend more time documenting your time than allowing you to actually do work.

    Talk about training but it's frowned a upon you if actually want to go to a class, seminar, or vendor training opportunity,

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to say no to clients who aren't worth the time.

    Don't be afraid to fire bad clients. Don't chase minimal $$$ just to have a project.

    Your Seniors and Managers need to be on the same page. Too many have their own agendas leaving first years to find their own way.

    Pros

    Challenging work, pretty good pay, lots of opportunity for bonuses, and great networking potential. Vacation policy very generous for new employees (15 business days, in USA). They pay you while on the bench (aka, while doing nothing).

    Cons

    Work-life balance is very poor. Don't get me wrong, HR will talk about fostering great work-life balance but when push comes to shove, your client and/or Project Manager couldn't care less about your work-life balance. Travel is an inevitability. Do not believe anyone at Capgemini who promises that you won't have to travel. Eventually you will.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to get to know your experience hires. Make the company less of a political circus and more results oriented.
