I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
- 100% bench time (time sitting at home doing nothing while waiting to be put on a project and still getting paid).
- Easy to come up with a much funnier / more accurate name for the company (see title).Cons
- Extremely high turnover rate, we actually lost more people than we gained last year. Everyone I know is either leaving, thinking of leaving or, if they just joined, have yet to realize that they should jump off this terrible ship ASAP.
- Failing to win any projects. I live next to Silicon Valley and it is shocking that a technology company like Capgemini can’t find a way to win ANY projects here… Very good example of where the business is heading. Capgemini is losing all the work to its bigger, more successful and higher competent competitors: Deloitte, Ernst and Young and Accenture
- No job growth. Due to the lack of work, it is impossible to gain any experience in order to grow / get promoted or feel any sense of fulfillment
- The few projects that do exist are in far flung out areas of the country that Capgemini’s competitors don’t bother with. These projects are dull, tiring and make you question the meaning of your existence.
- Every quarterly meeting we are given many promises of improvement and none are actually implemented. As a result morale declines and all the smart and talented people leave for better opportunities.
- Your mental health will suffer as you feel ashamed to work for such a low class, incompetent joke of a company
- Training is non-existent. The company does zero investment in its people / employees’ career growth
- Company is extremely cheap, they make billions of euros each year and there is no budget for dinners / team building events / holiday parties / providing adequate laptops that aren’t 10 years old and barely run
- Compensation is mediocre. This is kind of a moot point because even if they tripled my salary, it would not make a difference / make up for everything else.
- And this list goes on and on…Advice to ManagementAdvice
This company is a lost cause, mostly due to your incompetence. I would fire yourselves and then look for work in roles that don’t involve having to follow ethical standards, respecting others, critical thinking, thinking in general, problem solving, people management or using common sense.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
