    Pros

    Freedom to wok with Client and Architects

    Cons

    Poor Offshore support. No Management focus on delivery. Some of the managers had no clue of the environment they are supposed to manage and believed in staying 'on the fence' most of the times.

    Pros

    Capgemini is very entrepreneurial. If your self motivated, creative and aggressive you will be successful.

    Cons

    As the previous post stated Capgemini North America does not follow the tag line that Paris touts "People Mattet, Results Count". That's so far from the truth in North America. Capgemini North America is way to political.

    Advice to Management

    Try to pretend just a slight bit that you really care about the corporate tag line "People Matter, Results Count". Just fake it a bit!

    Pros

    I was trained in a new career. I was kept on bench a long time but some did not get that. I believe mine was because they got state money.

    Cons

    My supervisor was always in a different city and my co-workers in a different country on a diferent time schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Use more people who are us citizens.

    Pros

    Sometimes you get quality engagements. You don't work more than 50 hours a week often

    Cons

    It is a very relationship based organization. If you don't know VP with power you are pretty much screwed. Pretty easy to be overlooked if you are not part of the right group. A lot of staff augmentation work

    Pros

    - You work with lots of different people with lots of different perspectives - Decent benefits

    Cons

    - you're on your own for a career path - you constantly have to sell yourself for new projects - lots of turnover - no feeling of "togetherness" or "Team" - everyone is out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    - Attract and retain better quality CLIENTS - Decide of you're going to be a low cost provider or niche player - you can't do both - Devote more time and resources tot he development of your employees and DON'T make them feel bad about using developmental resources, especially if you want them to stay

    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.
