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

    Pros

    Competent staff, professional managers, good offerings in supply chain, strategic sorucing.

    Cons

    Needs a slightly better approach to balancing solutions for their clients; focus on the right solution for the client, and only then start discussing Business Process Outsourcing, off-shore relationships.

    Continue the focus on the customer.
