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

    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, 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Sogeti does a good job hiring talented people. You can definitely set your own career path and achieve your goals. 401K matching is about the best I've ever seen and often employees are given profit sharing through an added bump into our 401K accounts. The clients and projects are interesting and Sogeti works hard to support delivery. There is a strong focus on providing client delight and much talk is given around creating solutions over transactional, staff augmentation work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the great intentions do not always come to fruition in practice. They will take staff augmentation work to keep people billing, but it definitely takes away from the opportunity to do true consulting work. Decisions are made hastily at times and it feels like the kitchen keeps getting rearranged. There are a lot of short sighted decisions being made instead of lasting strategy implementation. The bonus structure is revamped every year, and they are quick to point out how much better it will be for the consultant, then a month or two later the bonus tiers are reset back to what it was originally and this is creating a great deal of frustration among the consultants. It also affects morale, as the bonus is strongly connected to billable rates which the consultant has no control over. The rates are negotiated by the Account Execs who make their money regardless. If you are put on a project that is in trouble, you are punished by working to fix it, because by the time you get there, the project is a financial loser and your bonus suffers. This is a deplorable way to deliver bonuses, and it sends a powerful message to the consultants that I do not think is intended. Further, the messaging around all of this is terrible. Lastly, vacation time is not aligned with career experience. When bringing in new managers/senior managers and higher, they start everyone with the same offering and one must build tenure within. This is a detractor for those that have already achieved more personal time off. It impacts work/life balance as well, as senior leadership is expected to maintain a fulltime set of duties and are also mandated to bill a set amount of hours on top of that. They only give 7 days for holidays and they do not float, so it makes it difficult to follow the client's schedule, and quite honestly, 7 days per year is bad anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your messaging right. Do not make promises or announce changes and then not follow through. Reconsider your time off policies and the way you deliver bonuses.

    Pros

    Health insurance is included, regardless of whether you're single or are married and have 8 kids.

    Decent starting salary coming out of college

    Nice 401k matching (150% of up to 6%)

    Cons

    High deductible health insurance

    Bonus program isn't very good

    3 full years to get any 401k/profit sharing

    May get stuck on a project that doesn't have anything to do with your career goals

    Pros

    Sogeti has smart and talented consultants who really want to satisfy clients' needs. There's decent benefits including a large 401k match and a lenient policy on tuition/training reimbursement. They've had steady growth for a while and hopefully as their brand name becomes more recognizable, they will attract more prominent clients.

    Cons

    Large units like in Ohio probably have great structure and communication, but for years my smaller unit has struggled with this. Organization is lacking and there aren't as many client project opportunities as you'd expect. They will try to shoehorn you into a project if you're on the bench too long, and that's really frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your communication structure in smaller units.

    Excellent company culture, benefits, and employee support. Sometimes a little "rah-rah," but completely genuine.

    - Mentoring is fostered by company sponsored program.

    - Though it's nice to have pep-rallies, they sometimes went beyond what was believable.

    - Stop pushing off-shore so hard.
