    Pros

    Good collaboration with the Consultants. We hire very talented Consultants that are innovative for our Clients.

    Cons

    Lack of training for Account Executives. Thoughts of just do the job as we pay you well. We don't need national training or meetings for you to meet and collaborate with others.

    No growth opportunity for Account Executives. Very male dominated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some female leadership and provide leadership training to your Leaders. Just because they were a good Consultant does NOT make them a good leader

    I worked at Sogeti full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    100% pay on bench
    Good client base
    Profit sharing and excellent 401k matching

    Cons

    Account execs are poor in looking out for new clients
    Not much investment in growing the sales team
    Not much brand recognition in the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the Sogeti name out in the market. Sponsor local events.
    Management has very strict top down approach. Local leaders do not have much leeway in making decisions in their respective units.

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

    Pros

    Speaking plainly, in my two and a half years of experience with Sogeti, I've received the exposure, training, and interaction needed to take my career to the next level.
    When I began with Sogeti, I felt my career was stagnant in terms of skills and training opportunities. The local HR Manager and Practice leaders REALLY stepped up to assist me with the experience and training I needed. This organization offers $12,000/year in training and tuition reimbursement, it really is unheard of in the marketplace.

    Local leadership really shines. My on-boarding was thorough and helpful and I feel like I can approach any one of my senior managers and get their time and opinions on any challenges I am facing.

    Cons

    I wish Sogeti put as much emphasis on training in sales and client relationship management as they do in Technical training. It's an area I don't have much experience in and would like ALOT more coaching and development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE put together a sales training seminar series. Please don't adjust the bonus program any further!

    Pros

    Great benefits if you take advantage of them. Great opportunities for growth if you seek them. Great people to work with that are excellent at what they do. Lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Communication from management is weak. If you want to know what is going on within your unit you must insert yourself in the 'conversation'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the hands in the field about business development opportunities.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Descent benefits, lots of vacation time can accrue. No health care premiums. Pay on the bench. Plenty of training opportunities, but you have to drive the effort.

    Cons

    Small pay raises, but they are there. Bonus program is confusing, subjective. Must be very proactive on the bench to find new engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes are being made to practices which is good, but too frequent changes to practices are not., AE communication with consultants is not always the best.
