    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Decent salary with decent benefits; great for entry-level job out of college
    - Depending on account you land, ability to work from home
    - Lots of happy hours
    - Alt travel (though I hear they are cracking down on this)

    Cons

    - Little to no work/life balance
    - An IT firm filled with people who have no aspiration of learning about technology (some managers don't know anything about technology at all)
    - No IT training available
    - Management misinterprets 'hard work' and 'long hours of work'
    - Poor raises
    - Goals you set with your assigned career/people manager are not used as a metric for end-of-year rating
    - Turning more into a managed services firm under current leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People join Capgemini with the promise of working with IT in IT-focused companies; not work on managed services projects. Short-term profits? Great. Long-term profits? Dissatisfaction and a huge exodus. Find the projects that matter that keeps employees happy.

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

    Pros

    great for lazy people who just want a "job" and nothing else, not even work.

    Cons

    - Big boys culture with former EY people
    - Sub-quality people
    - An IT Company that do not care for technology training at all
    - Cross-division functions are all messed up. Capgemini staffed management consultants on tech project
    - You have no freedom on what you want to do - top down culture
    - Bad compensation
    - Seem to focus way more on networking than skills
    - Losing out in the North American business arena - projects are dearth due to subquality delivery, high fees, and subquality people
    - They cleverly coined the term rightshore but offshore people are total crap and lack motivation to work - wrongshore rather.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and hire better people.

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

    Pros

    Talented, hard working people. There are a broad range of skills that can be leveraged for the clients. The global reach allows for strategic level solutions

    Cons

    Quarter-by-quarter mentality; tactical vs strategic thinking. Often senior leadership is understandably concerned about making the numbers, but it doesn't have to be done at the complete sacrifice of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct a 3 year strategic plan and communicate it through all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are competitive. Admin support staff is nice and friendly if you take the time to get to know them. Fun environment with a lot of happy hours.

    Cons

    Your interests and career goals are not taken into consideration when taking on new projects. You are staffed based upon which manager gets their hand in there first. Employees grossly underutilized at the lower levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the lower levels and the admin support staff more, and show your appreciation for them better. They will return the appreciation by working harder for you.
