    OK company to work for

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Capgemini (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice working environment but that was at the client site.

    Cons

    Management seems disorganized, and they want you to keep doing a lot of reporting and administrative tasks that impede your core responsibilities.

    Pros

    If you are a techy then you can rule the project such as easy onsite, promotions.....

    Cons

    1. Ruining the freshers future - Worst training
    2. Hiring team - They will hire people who don't even know how to write hello world program nor basic select statement
    3. Senior and middle management will take ages to learn about new technologies
    4. Manangers don't how to pinch in with the client to get a new projects and openings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide adiquate training for all managers. They might have good coding skills in Maingframe but that will not work with today technologies

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    Capgemini has a very entrepreneurial environment which allows flexibility in support of our clients.

    Cons

    Current North American Leadership has not followed the Group tag line “People Matter, Results Count” Unlike other areas of the world, this is not a value that they follow in North America. Also way too political in NA!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    North American Leadership really needs to put more effort on their people. Capgemini is in the business of people. So instead of pretending that you care, its time to act on “People Matter, Results Count

    In a company of this size, there are too many layers of management.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starting out, I think they have a lot to offer. New (especially campus) hires can get a lot of good experience and eventually opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    As time goes by, one starts feeling taken for granted. Training becomes more and more your problem; issues you bring up you're told to just "handle it".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't read these, and if they did they wouldn't take action on them anyway, so no advice.
