    Good in the beginning

    General Motors Enterprise Command Center Lead (Former Employee)
    Warren, MI

    ProsI can not say, as the contract I was on was doomed to fail from the beginning.

    ConsThe sales negotiation team bit off more than they could chew working with General Motors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was on a contract that was not managed by Capgemini management, but rather General Motors. I hold nothing against Capgemini.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Accelerated learning without much support

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsMoney is okay.
    Got the chance to work in India and meet some of my project counterparts and increase my understanding of the culture.

    ConsPromotions at the level level are given without merit. 2 years is the time frame so lone as you done mess up, you don't have to be great though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow reorg and industry focus apply to consultants also

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good, with a lot of competition

    Senior Consultant P5 (Current Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsGood place, no grey areas. It's a perform and flourish scene.

    ConsToo many people, so promotions need to be fought for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Capgemini - great place to grow and make a difference

    Service Delivery Lead (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsVery open environment with opportunities for those looking to learn, be proactive, drive your career towards your personal goals. A lot of learning and training materials made available openly for employees. Ranging from technical, process, PM, etc. Generous PTO and benefits packages. Very strong thought leaders in areas of process and service management. Offshore delivery centers are top notch.

    ConsRequires you to manage your own career and make it happen. You are expected to be a business professional and provide customers top service while also managing your own career. This is as expected, but some may not like this hands-off approach. Organizational communications have traditionally been weak, but in 2014 big push to improve. Could do better at driving innovation in tools used at enterprise level as well as at consultant level (laptop spec).

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership styles vary widely between service lines. Understand who you are reporting to, their approach and how you fit into the larger organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Career Growth

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsWorking for a Big 5 consulting Company

    ConsNo Career Growth; Operates like a Mom & Pop shop. They dont develop their resources and have the policy of fire and hire, hence dont retain resources at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your attrition rate and take care of your people. Realize people is Strength in Consulting Organization

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Entrepreneurial culture with Freedom but overly restrictive internal tools and processes

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsEntrepreneurial culture with freedom to achieve what you want. Great People despite the fact that the French Management has limited interaction or knowledge of the US market, resources and trends

    ConsOverly complicated French driven processes designed by people who sit in an office and never get out to client sites where the work really happens
     Antiquated tools and technologies (Laptops, Conference Bridges, web based tools etc)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBesides comp and work life balance the only thing your people need are good tools to do their job
    Please modernize the software, systems, bridges and computers they use on a daily basis. Its not enough to talk about CLOUD, Information Management and other emerging technologies without embracing them. Move to new technologies and cut reliance on ineffective IT support personnel. This will make your people happy and you will save $$$.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
