    Capgemini India TS - Good Company - But not very location agnostic in India

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    *Flexibility
    *Work Life Balance
    *Independence, as long as commitments are met
    *Good packages if you bargain well

    Cons

    *Moving between locations in India is a problem, as locations are managed by different business units - makes you think if it is really correct when you say it is one company in India.
    *Growth is also problem if you are not at local head office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All locations of a company in India/any country should be accessible to all employees and not BU/Division wise. After all we do our work via PCs, Phones and network connectivity - and this is our first pitch when we say distributed delivery- and it logically doesn't make sense to restrict within one country when there is available workspace. May be a central location management entity could solve this

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very open environment with opportunities for those looking to learn, be proactive, drive your career towards your personal goals. A lot of learning and training materials made available openly for employees. Ranging from technical, process, PM, etc. Generous PTO and benefits packages. Very strong thought leaders in areas of process and service management. Offshore delivery centers are top notch.

    Cons

    Requires you to manage your own career and make it happen. You are expected to be a business professional and provide customers top service while also managing your own career. This is as expected, but some may not like this hands-off approach. Organizational communications have traditionally been weak, but in 2014 big push to improve. Could do better at driving innovation in tools used at enterprise level as well as at consultant level (laptop spec).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership styles vary widely between service lines. Understand who you are reporting to, their approach and how you fit into the larger organization.

    Capgemini is a good company with great benefits. Capgemini has a good training program as well as an opportunity to travel and meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.

    The compensation is good, but not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Capgemini hires most recent college graduates and individuals from out of state/country. Charlotte has lots of qualified candidates who should be considered.
