    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.

    IT Consultant at Sogeti

    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits & 401k, fair pay, quick promotion track for over achievers, lots of opportunities to take leadership roles, aggressive bonus structure if you contribute back to the company above and beyond your client role.

    Cons

    Market planning and strategy lacks definition.

    A person who is not a self starter may have difficulty succeeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition for consultants who contribute to Sogeti above and beyond their client responsibilities.

    More solution sell/build/support from regional and national teams.

    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

    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.

    The support needed to grow my career

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Blue Ash, OH
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Blue Ash, OH

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (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!
