    You may have to take on a role that is out of your comfort zone.

    Pros

    --Benefits: immediate 150% 401k match up to 6% contribution and just 3-year vested schedule, Profit Sharing, Vacation Days, Tuition Reimbursement...
    --Training material available: there's an entire learning center for consultants to access
    --Bonus Program: Reading some of the other reviews, it seems people aren't a fan of it and one reviewer said "you have to work your butt off to get a bonus".... NO KIDDING? You don't say?! What kind of concept is that? Work extra hard to get BONUS pay, above and beyond your generous salary?! Another reviewer said you need to be "in" with the people that rate. Why yes, you should be reaching out to your local management and be proactive. How do you think they're going to rate you if they don't even know you exist? The Bonus Program is definitely a positive about this company.
    --Overall work/personal life balance
    --Project opportunities
    --Client Base
    --Counselor Program
    --Support from regional / geographical managers and Account Executives: be proactive and keep in touch with the important people in your region and in your unit. You will get lots of support from them and will be given great opportunities, as you show you care and put forth more effort.

    Cons

    The only "con" I experience isn't company-specific, it's the nature of business and consulting. There are times you're given short notice or little information on projects and have to adjust quickly and be on your own to figure out what's going on. All you do to overcome that is communicate well and be proactive and ask questions / reach out to points of contact who will guide you. If anything, this can actually be a "pro" because it keeps you on your feet and forces you to learn / grow at a faster pace than the typical "comfort zone".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management I've come in contact with have been very supportive and always communicate opportunities for webinars we can attend, keep us in the loop about what's going on in the unit, industry, etc...

    The only thing I did wish is that we could get more support for are external training events. There's a lot of free webcasts and training we have access to, but sponsored events put on by technical corporations or professional organizations, like SAP, TIBCO and PMI, those are next to impossible to get funding for.

    Good company for self-driven people with leadership qualities.

    Pros

    Hard work and leadership potential is recognized and rewarded with responsibility, challenge, and opportunities. The benefits are good. They include generaous vacation time, health care, and 401k. Your bonus is performance driven bonus amongst your unit and region. You get to work with a network of really smart people.

    Cons

    Every year there are changes to policies regarding benefits and infrastructure, leadership, and general political alignment. Communication from leadership, especially national and regional level, is not that great. Not many people have heard of Sogeti.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solidify policy and shift culture away from modesty.

    Pros

    Sogeti has a focus on their people like no other company I've worked for. The emphasis is on training, personal growth, advancement, opportunity and providing excellent benefits and rewards for good performance. They care if the work is challenging or you are unhappy at a client, you aren't just body. Project based work in a team environment. Sogeti is an innovative and creative leader in the IT services industry and it's cool to be a part of it.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any significant cons. Sogeti is what you make it, they provide support and training, it's up to you to take advantage of those opportunities and to make things happen for yourself.

    Pros

    Sogeti rewards stars. If you are pro-active, focused on furthering your career and education, want to earn bonuses, you will. I did. There is support, but you need to reach out for it, they don't push it on you. If you go on the bench, you still get paid as a FTE. If you go on the bench for a long time, if you've been a good employee (high client reviews) they will support you for months. It's what you make it.

    Cons

    If you are a pencil pusher and choose not to shine, you're Sogeti experience will reflect your lackluster performance. It is a true mirror of your effort. If you are a complainer, you will complain about Sogeti.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the Go-No Go for pursuits to smaller companies.

    Pros

    At this company your destiny is really in your own hands. It is different than any other consulting company that I have worked for. They really focus on growing the company through investing in their consultants. CEO of US operations was a consultant at one point for Sogeti. You can always reach out if you need help and you are never alone on any project.

    Cons

    some of the individual units are new and challenged with the sales cycle of large solutions work because of this they are challenged with what makes sense?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the practice folks should really be helping the local units to get the onboarding together per practice this will help in alleviating gaps. Keep up the good work!
