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

    Pros

    - Strong camaraderie among some consultants as we were aware we had all made a horrible mistake joining this organisation.

    Cons

    - Terrible salary
    - Claim not to be a body shop operation but completely are.
    - Incompetent HR
    - High attrition rate. People are keen to leave as soon as they join as they see what a sham it is.
    - Little recognition for going the extra mile.
    - Little scope for progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just rebrand as a recruitment consultancy. Anything else is just being dishonest.

    Pros

    I really can't think of any!

    Cons

    The management is extremely unprofessional. They don't have any future planning for the employees and they can't foresee the prospect of upcoming projects as well. Very disorganized, the HR department is especially horrible! My experience was with Sogeti Indianapolis location, not sure about other locations though.

    Pros

    401K but if you stick with company for 3 years. Believe me its long time for this kind of company

    Cons

    Not good projects. Plain body shop. Send people to client side even if they are not qualified. Account executives are worse, do nothing about getting new projects. Long hours and client decides work life balance.

    Misleading and backwards way of operating

    Former Employee - Senior IT Consultant in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers in the Baltimore office were very welcoming and nice.

    Cons

    Everything else. Their operation model is backwards. They stack up the bench with resources and THEN look for engagements. I was on the bench along with ten others for about three months and then was laid off stating "they didnt have any opportunities". This was quite different from what I was told at the interview. For three months I was simply paid $65,000 to watch training videos. I dont see how they can afford to practice like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment. I didnt really get to know management here.

    Pros

    They will tell you whay you want to hear to your face and make you feel like you are valued. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Client satisfaction appears to be the last thing management values. They are so focused on the next sale they do not reward you unless you are part of sales. Consultant = Billing Rate - Cost. It seems like their model is to encourage high turn over (even though they will state that they want stability) to keep margins higher. When a client grows tired of the turn over and inexperience of new developers Sogeti moves on to the next client. I have been at the same client for over a year and honestly do not know who my Account Exec is. Work/Life Balance is determined by your client but if you do not work overtime you will not see much of a bonus. Raises and performance appraisals are done anonymously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not act surprised when Sogeti is classified as a cheap labor body shop.

    Pros

    The only pro for working with this company is that it is a job and they leave you alone.

    Cons

    Not honest, they will flat out lie to you to keep you around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and pay people what they're worth.

    Former Employee - I Was A Senior Manager With Over 20+ Years

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the unit I worked in the management team was great. They had the contacts in the area to make the sales. When the new CIO started adjusting the sales compensation and how he wanted to go after sales the unit went down hill.

    Cons

    No one cared about how work was done...no checking on the staff work...also the benfits were outstanding but the company started to chip away he year taking some away..the bonus program was great while under the control of the units manager but the that was taken away and put under corprate....very poor now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CIO for Sogeti USA and area managers...let the unit managers run the units...

    I think the Sogeti CEO needs to talk with the staff at Sogeti USA
