    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy working in Tampa. I would not like to work anywhere else. Management is very approachable. Work-life balance is great. They are very flexible regarding when work is done. The benefits are the best I have seen.

    Cons

    There has not been enough autonomy for unit management to control all aspects of their business. Senior management in the company has to approve too many decisions that should be made locally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    College graduate salaries should be higher. Allow the unit management to run their unit as they see fit and measure them on their effectiveness.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    > Decent entry level compensation... after you consider the certificate and continued education reimbursements.
    > Very nice and fun coworkers.
    > Laid back and fun environment.
    > Higher ups treat you with respect and as an equal.
    > Encourage self-betterment. Want you to do things to improve your skill set (and to increase your bill rate).
    > Hardly compensated for working in excess of 40hr/week.

    Cons

    > Healthcare deductible is absolutely terrible for a single employee ($4450, then company covers 90%).
    > More interested in filling positions at clients than finding the right fit; another reviewer uses the analogy "square peg in a round hole." I joined Sogeti hoping to do primarily OOP (Java or C# primarily - as advertised). I've done almost everything besides that at my first and only client. VB.NET, SSIS, MAINFRAME (COBOL, JCL, DB2), and way too much system testing. I'm not talking about the kind of testing that is expected from developers. I'm talking QA, almost UAT, type testing.
    > Extremely subjective bonus system.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are the type that places emphasis on learning and growing and being patient with your salary increases, sogeti is a good company to work for. The benefits are good - 401k match of 100% up to 6% of sal + 5 weeks vacation once u hit 7 years of experience. No insurance premiums to pay, but high deductible. HSA can help cover but deductible exceeds max allowed HSA contribution.

    Cons

    There will be times when you get paid less than your client peers or even direct reports at client. That can be frustrating! You will have to work with management to roadmap your salary adjustments over time. Wont happen in one shot.

    Have to prove yourself by being actively involved in unit activities , proposals and certifications. 9-5 folks will find this extra work annoying and will not grow or get rewarded as much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No bonus program is perfect, but there are instances where for the same person doing the same job with progressively greater responsibilities gets paid less bonus each year because upper management is fiddling around with the job title...this happened 4 years in a row. Similarly the main bonus program doesn't directly tie to things the consultant can control - bill rates(affects profit contribution), otace that make up big parts of the program.

    I have been working at Sogeti

    Pros

    Education credit, high deductible but free health insurance, 150% 401k up to 6% but paid annually (leave before 12/31 and you lose it), ok company culture, hard not to get at least a $2500 bonus.

    Cons

    Salary under industry norm, bench too long and you're let go, bonus program massaged differently every year, HSA in lieu of health insurance. Yearly upgrades either low or sometimes not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications and stop massaging the benefit program.

    Pros

    Lot of emphasis on sales which is good but if the person is sales oriented.

    Cons

    Less emphasis on team structure and team building. Salaries need to be normalized based on location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on resource management.

    Pros

    Good for Entry-level professionals like recent graduates, they pay for your time "on the bench", great benefits and 401k employer contribution, nice and welcoming culture of the company, a lot of activities promoting communication and helping others among consultants and other employees, access to every technology you need.

    Cons

    It's difficult to be promoted, you have to participate in the office activities as teaching some technologies you know to other consultants, and promoting sales at the clients. The salaries are good for starters, but after several years nothing changes much.
