    In a company of this size, there are too many layers of management.

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

    Pros

    -The people are generally nice and helpful to work with on projects
    - Many people who work here are apathetic about it, therefore if you are in this category you can generally get away without doing much work

    Cons

    -The pay and compensation package is much lower than competitors and yearly increases for even top performers are 3-5%
    -As mentioned in other reviews mediocrity is rampant across all parts of the organization
    -The organization stresses it is entrepreneurial but this is just a poor excuse for poor management and the lack internal processes and organization
    -Given its low position int the market compared to competitors the terms of sale for projects are often poor resulting in inability for flexibility in working remote, staying at good hotels, and the offshore/onshore mix
    -VPs are top management are very uninvolved in internal activities or personally developing the team or people
    -Attrition is very high
    -Professionalism across all aspects of the organization is low
    -The company in the US acts at though it wants to be a strategy consulting firm and advisor to clients, but its competitors and its strategy are really aligned with that of Indian Pure Plays (Tata, Infosys, etc).
    -Very few women and diversity at top levels of the organization. About less than 10 females VPs in the US in client facing roles.
    -Because Capgemini struggles to win deals, it rarely offers flexible arrangements for projects, while most competitors are increasingly focused on this to retain top talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Develop a strong culture by creating a vision and strategy and stick to it
    -Develop an office and people culture by actually getting involved in events and meeting with employees at all levels (VP lunches, Employee Resource Group events, Fridays in the office, etc)

    Pros

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

    Promotions 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 ManagementAdvice
