    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very collaborative, entrepreneurial environment. Having worked at Deloitte which is very 'fraternity' like, this is a refreshing environment. Nowhere near the amount of egos, backstabbing, lies and deceit as there. You hold the key to your success...or lack thereof.

    Cons

    Last year's raises were small, upper management sometimes suffers from an identity crisis...are we a low cost provider or are we a consulting firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive value to our customers by focusing on business impact.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are market related.

    Cons

    Very little in promotion or increases in 7 years; Very little support in transitioning when we lost a big account - I was told that one should not expect a job in a technical field to last this long anyway; Don't expect respect when trying to balance your family and work life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down to the factory floor sometimes. Show the loyalty and respect that you want from the assembly line.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent. Self directed training opportunities are available to enhance skills. Potential opportunities to work in many different areas and markets. Intelligent, experienced co-workers.

    Cons

    Political as with any large, global firm. Decisions are not always made based upon the best solution. Some of the management place their own interests and career progression above that of the collective group.

    Pros

    Capgemini is a huge company with hundreds of divisions, groups, teams, etc. If you can find a good manager and a good customer then the experience will be satisfying. I've had the blessing of working in a great situation for many years.
    I'm allowed to work from home 4 days a week. The pay, time off, flexible schedule, and overall benefits are great.

    Cons

    Capgemini is a huge company and there will always be people still hanging around whom should have left years ago.
    If you want to grow in your career you will have to put 99.99% of the effort in. Capgemini's outsourcing division does not mentor employees or seek to grow and promote them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR transparency needs to be real, not a smoke and mirrors game. Star employees should be valued, not just given a number on a review once a year.
    Figure out how to work within the various divisions, business units, and geographies. Stop acting like 100 different companies with the same logo.
