    Pros

    Sogeti has been a great employer to me for a few years now. I have been able to be upwardly mobile in the organization and have felt appreciated most of the time. There have been ups and downs but what company doesn't have that. I think they have made great strides to keep up with changing times and have improved their focus on being employee centric.

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication and messaging from corporate on changes. They are working to improve that but it's been somewhat damaging to morale when changes are announced, then recanted. Or when changes aren't fully explained, or implemented without warning. Internal technology needs upgrading.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage your internal wealth of talented people to upgrade our internal technology, use OCM experts before communicating change. Be transparent in communication. Allow more company events and perks for employees - goes a long way in making people feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Benefits and time off aredecent
    Consultants are talented

    Cons

    C level management calls all of the shots - out of touch with real world consulting and sales approaches. Leads by intimidation. Local Upper Management has to follow all of his unorthodox ideas and try their best to act like it's a good idea. Bonus levels are unattainable so don't be fooled during the interview process. Best to negotiate your salary very high at the beginning because you won't be seeing any significant increases over the years. Tenured consultants seem to be brainwashed into thinking there aren't other better opportunities outside of Sogeti. Things change on a dime; as do comp plans/benefits etc without any explanation or rationalization. Sales team is completely demotivated after recent comp changes; made morale at an all time low. Will be tough to attract decent sales people moving forward as they seem to be all looking for other opportunities where they are appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time with your consultants to find out what motivates them and get back to the basics of being a good company. You have talented consultants that want to work hard and be successful. Stop focusing on the small things such as travel expenses and monthly expenses. Those are highly scrutinized every week and make it seem like you don't trust your employees. Pay out your bonuses and create an environment of mutual success, not one sided to the CIO's pocket.

    Pros

    Get to change jobs on a semi regular basis. You will not be stuck on the same project for years, unless you want to.
    Management is very nice and most of my coworkers are as well.
    This is my first job out of college and I am pretty satisfied so far.

    Cons

    You may be put on projects you do not like, but can express this dislike and try to move somewhere else.
    Sometimes you commute will be great and sometimes it will be terrible depending on the location of the client.

    Pros

    Great benefits and management. Very employee centered organization and rewards value.

    Cons

    The only con would begin guidance on status between projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stress employee engagement support, stability, and value. Continue to stress employee security.

    Pros

    Great, intelligent, motivated co-workers. Management will listen if you are willing to challenge their decisions with alternatives (not simply complaining). Upward mobility and compensation for training. Projects are local, so you can have a family or pets.

    Cons

    Corporate red tape. Top down decisions not necessarily conducive to the type of employee they aspire to attract. Insurance isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire and keep smart, creative people quit trying to stamp them all into a mold.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good for someone who wants to continue coursework or get another degree ($12,000 tuition reimbursement), good co-workers (when you see them), smart people, locations everywhere, good office staff (recruiter, HR).

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and unclear direction (or how to get there). If unhappy at a client they will listen to you but you will likely be stuck there or forced to resign. At the end of the day the sales people are more concerned with commission. Growth is possible, but mostly in sales. You may also be on a project alone from Sogeti so you lose a sense of identifying with the company. When I joined I thought I'd be working on a team of Sogeti people.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on what you say you're going to do.

    Pros

    most employees are good and congenial, helping in nature

    Cons

    The management is bad. Most of the times, managers have no clue what;s happening at the client's place. Once placed, management takes no interest in the employee's career and growth. Since the company is very small, they cannot place you once a project is over - not a company to stick with if you are looking for long term prospects

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and stop running away/avoiding them when they have issues (work related issues)

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing,,,,,,150% 401k match, profit sharing, all healthcare, dental, life, long term disability, short term disability are paid by the company. The health insurance is an HSA with a high deductible but if you contribute tax free to the savings account (what you would be paying for your monthly premiums somewhere else) it's a great plan. Corporate discounts on cars, cell phones, dining, travel, appliances.

    Cons

    They don't always pay top dollar for talent but they try to make up for it with all of the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The company should be changing with the times. Pay more for top talent, revamp the bonus structure.
