  1. Good company to work. Growth is slow but work life balance is good. Good visibility. Back Office work is clumsy.

    Pros

    political office culture. If you are good at it, this is the place for you. Time off policy is good. Nice 30 days in a calendar year. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    No promotions to be expected. No matter what you do :) . False promises. Will do it tomorrow attitude. No straight forward answers. Shady policies

    Advice to Management

    get rid of old hags

    Pros

    Good benefits. Continuous projects. If you are settled with a client, it would be for many years to come. Flexible environment.

    Cons

    Salary is a big minus. Doesn't care much about the employees. Excuses for everything an employee asks by quoting their policies etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as people, not resources.

    Pros

    You can travel, get hotel points, and frequent flyer miles.

    Cons

    The training program is horrendous. The work they have you do is mind-numbing, allowing for zero creativity. Employees are worked over 12 hour days and weekends without a choice. Management is unwelcoming and not helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Completely change your training program, actually pay for real trainers. Allow your employees to be creative and not forced to follow strict methodology that is inefficient. Reward employees on their actual work produced and not just the amount of hours put in.

  10. The company has smart people but doesn’t always execute well on client engagements.

    Pros

    There is a strong focus on client service. Some ongoing training is provided. The professional staff are generally smart and capable.

    Cons

    The internal technology is lacking and not modern. There is inadequate integration between Capgemini FSGBU and the overall Capgemini organization. Not enough attention is placed on staffing client engagements with the optimal professionals for the requirements and scope. I saw a tendency to fill project roles with someone with some relevant experience; but not necessarily the best person to fill the role.

    Advice to Management

    Improve all aspects of the technology provided to client service professionals. Improve time reporting to be inclusive of all hours worked; not just entering 8 hours per day. Improve the process for approval of travel, time & expense submissions, etc. so that it is not so cumbersome.

  11. An okay experience

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, very nice co-workers overall, opportunity to work abroad if you get on the right project, pretty good at promoting entry-level consultants after 2 years

    Cons

    Staffing issues, not much say on which projects you can get on, projects can last a long time, lack of training opportunities, lack of strong office culture
