    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility to work either from home or at the client site. 4 weeks of Time off.

    Cons

    The budget for Training to enhance your skills is scarce. One has to get trained on their own. Personal Internal team building is a challenge because of the kind of business we are in (Geographical spread).

    Pros

    Capgemini has a great workforce with intelligent, talented resources. They allow and encourage you to move up at your own pace. They bid on challenging projects that really motivate their teams to deliver difficult implementations.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be difficult with traveling and other demands faced on critical IT projects. Difficult to meet sales KPIs while also meeting delivery/billed utilization metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in growing resources. Take a more personal interest in mentoring the younger generation.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starting out, I think they have a lot to offer. New (especially campus) hires can get a lot of good experience and eventually opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    As time goes by, one starts feeling taken for granted. Training becomes more and more your problem; issues you bring up you're told to just "handle it".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't read these, and if they did they wouldn't take action on them anyway, so no advice.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some good people, but there are many pockets of below average. Work life balance is ok and there is some flexibility.

    Cons

    The annual "round-table" review process is very political and it's about who you know. Every year, there is a predetermined number of high performers that will get rewarded with bonuses and raises. It doesn't matter if all 150,000 employees were the highest performers and brought in $100 M each. because of the predetermined number that can get a bonus and a raise, most come out as "meets expectations" (a 3 on scale of 1-5) and you will get no raise or bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break off from the French part of the main company because they could care less about concerns about North American employees

    Former Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary was fair and Individuals wanted to do what was right. You need to make sure that this is the right fit for you.

    Cons

    Cap (at least the Capgemini America, there are a dozen different operating companies and each one is different) is trying to apply the big consulting model on what should be light weight POCs and implementations. The management does not want to listen to options. And, despite their mantra of life work balance I was continually working 60 hour weeks. In my group there was 50% turnover in the 2 years I was there this included the VP and several other group leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new ways to implement your SaaS offerings. You hire people with experience in the field but do not listen to the ways that they have been sucessfull.

    Pack of uncapable loosers

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Capgemini (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - There is NO Pros in this company. Except it gives you a brand name of consulting.
    - However a lot of US clients dont know the name. So.....
    - Compensation is pathetic and doesent keep up with the market.

    Cons

    - Top Management is extremely inept and uncapable
    - Extremely political and that starts right at the top of the food chain.
    - Company runs without a vision (First TELCO and split and now HTEC) What is this ???
    - Mediocrity is rampart
    - Buzzwords rather than results oriented
    - Favoritism is the only way to get promoted or higher rating
    - I was surprised to see that during the round tables, the top performers were automatically pushed down for the lower rating, while the laggards having solid network were pushed to the top.
    - Top Talent doesent stay with the company for long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - 99% of the VP's are completely redundant, incapable and free loaders on work done by the junior level staff. Most of them should be let go. Those who are not let go should be given monthly targets and held accountable. There is ZERO vision ANY of the VP provides.
    - 80% of the Principals should be let go and replaced. Whoever are left should be whacked to get sales.
    - Respect the employees. If it weren't for them, YOU wouldn't have a job !!!
