    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training:- Great Learning material on their website. Web sessions, Books, Classroom etc. This is a major plus point.
    Work Life Balance:- Will depend on the account/practice you work for. If you are in a client facing role with an offshore team, you will really have to spend the extra hours to deliver. If you are in a client facing role in a staff aug position, the work load may not be as much.

    Cons

    Personal Growth:- There are many opportunities across NA region. But again, grabbing these opportunities is highly dependent on your current manager and account. You may not be moved to a better opportunity if they don't find your replacement especially when you are on a billable slot. Every manger/account will first consider their own account's priority and will only move you out if there is a better replacement or if you are not doing well enough to stay there. If you are a really smart person in such a slot - then you are doomed to spend your entire career in that same account. The only option to take your career forward is to move out of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not let any associate spend over two years in the same account.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    Provided the opportunity to meet and build relationships with people from different backgrounds. I was presented with opportunities to work on things that broadened my scope of expertise.

    Cons

    The leadership did not necessarily invest a great time behind individual success within the company. It would have been nice for some to really care about one's success as they reach different milestones within the company.

    Former Employee - Sales Operations Manager
    Former Employee - Sales Operations Manager

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Capgemini has an excellent benefits package and most co-workers are very intelligent. Overall I was very satisfied with my employment there and only wish I could have avoided a reduction in force through a reassignment within the company. Compensation was very good.

    Cons

    Leadership is struggling to win business in the Cloud services space. Rate cards tend to be on the higher end and make it hard for Capgemini to compete with Indian pure-plays. Not enough bench talent, leading to subcontracting that eats into profit margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize offshore resources more frequently and more intelligently. Employ more enterprise architects, expecially for pursuit support.
