    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Capgemini Consulting

    Pros

    great work culture and office environment, reasonable management, transparency of processes related to project management, promotes professionalism, exciting projects in multiple domains

    Cons

    Administrative processes are long drawn, uncoordinated, and hard to understand--its like the internal departments don't talk to each other at all--so one tiny issue will involve talking to multiple people

    I worked at Capgemini Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the wealth of knowledge and experiences available to me through those around me. Lots of senior leadership is available if you're hubbed in the right office. Some of them have global experiences that are pretty cool to hear about, and you can learn a bunch. The projects are often right out of a business textbook, and there's a lot of opportunity to learn from the Apps community globally.

    Cons

    If you're on the west coast, you need to be in the San Francisco office and not in Burbank, or you'll likely get passed up for projects. All of the west coast senior leadership team works there. I was told to get ready to move to SF but then was called back the next day and told to stay in the Burbank office which ruined my morale after being told by the IMM practice leader how it couldn't compare. In the Burbank office, I received little to no training about even the internal policies, and spent long periods with no updates on my future project status. I was given a mentor, but he too was untrained and new to the company, and faced the same long periods without updates for potential new projects, despite our efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training and staffing of new hires needs to be taken more seriously! There's no set development program for young, aspiring consultants aside from e-learning and that alone won't get you staffed. Also, how does one get away with terminating somebody with only 1 year of experience so you can't get another job in that industry? So cold! Not the type of leaders any smart prospect would want to work for, anyway.

    Consider negotiating your salary well when you start with the company. Y-O-Y raises may not be as per your expectation and may play you down in the long run

    Pros

    Great clients, with a broad expanse of work available. Managers are hands in with clients and know what is happening at client site.

    Cons

    Managers are not engaged with staff. Blow off any issues. They are actually doing analyst work, not managing consultants. Left to our own devices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without consultants, you don't exist. Listen

    I worked at Capgemini Consulting as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The actual work was always interesting, the clients are challenging (usually in a good way), and my colleagues were amazing, warm and wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Career growth was not supported, I went five years without a raise (although I continuously received positive feedback), and the perception amongst my colleagues was that the only way to really advance your career - especially in moving further up the ladder - was to be French...
