I worked at CapgeminiPros
Government Solutions a growing area
Pleasant, can do atmosphere
Opportunity to participate in centers of practice, centers of excellence
Work life balance emphasis supportive of workers with families, other demands in off hours.Cons
Government Solutions as part of Capgemini NA was kind of the "stepchild"
Due to Government requrements, systems of CGGS had to be kept separate from Capgemini NA, which meant there was not as much opportunity for knowledge sharing, or even software use as would have made job easier for me
Not understanding Capgemini levels and culture before coming on board was a disadvantage when negotiating position and understanding what was offered at other levels that might have afforded the opportunity to negotiate a better package
Not enough effort is spent to find places for people who are displaced from projects costs the company a lot of attrition of good workers.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Make the time to work with Capgemini GS more closely
Work on a better angle for collaboration between the two parts of the company, dismantle some of the wall between the two.
If there is an employee who is hired who is a good employee overall, but possibly could do better in another position, see if there is a way to help find a match, instead of allowing talent to walk out the door, or get cut from contracts without a place to go.
Have recruiting clarify roles for employees, and what that means for their packages when they extend offers or before the employee comes on, so that expecations are set at the proper level.No opinion of CEO
