    Capgemini - a great company, lots of travel

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat opportunities - especially for those who come into the company via Campus program (heck,even the CEO came out of campus)
    Opportunity to work in a variety of industries
    Good Pay and Great Benefits - 3 weeks vacation MINIMUM!! VC, Profit Sharing. All travel costs covered by company and you get to keep your miles and hotel awards (many consulting firms let the company accrue these)

    Cons100% travel - you may be on the beach sometimes, but when you are not you are on the road
    Political Company - you have to really network to do well at Cap - partially because people are on various projects and not in an office, you have to work to make sure people know who you are.
    Work/Life Balance can be tough - type A, bright employees work a lot of hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency with open roles within Company.
    Can we get some better hardware? Access to Mac products would be great!

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

    Enjoyed my time at Capgemini

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsEnjoyed working with really nice people. Had great success in the insurance vertical. great list of fortune 500 clients. Really liked office and ability to have freedom to act.

    ConsTravel requirements can be hard. 4 to 5 days in a 7 day week out of town is very difficult. being on site at client can be hard. I did not like the restriction on blackberries for people under senior manager. The blackberry tool seems to be helpful for everyone else, why not enable your consultants and managers to be reachable while on the go. Everyone seems to be on the go anyway.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnable some sort of employee stock compensation plan or stock purchase plan to positively impact morale and retention.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great for the resume!

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsTh experience is second to none. In just under two years I have built a resume that is very impressive. In addition, as I have started looking for a new position elsewhere, I actually get calls back from very large and respected companies. Do it for the experience if for nothing else. And if you love to travel, then this is also the best way to go.

    ConsIf you have a family, like I do, the travel is a bit much. Travel is 100% for the most part, but in my experience, if you prove your value then there is room to maneuver in terms of flexibility in terms of a travel schedule that works for you. However, if you are in Chicago and the client is in New Jersey well then you are out of luck. Just no way around it if you want to stay on the project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet over the titles. So you are a Sr. Manager, big freakin' deal! By letting titles get in the way you stop yourself from exchanging and interacting with those who actually have some great ideas are are talented. The only difference that separates you from me is the fact that you sold alot of work. Get over yourself.

    ProsGreat company to work for I have worked here for 14 years. Excellent career growth available within the company. Diverse company crossing many development centers across many cultures.

    ProsGood opportunity for growth / career advancement / stretch roles

    Great place to work !

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Rosemont, IL

    ProsGreat place to work in. Salaries are either in line or higher that the market pays for a similar role. Leadership is great and always look for providing additional value to their customers.

    ConsLeadership needs to be more involved in their employees and the organization should have more rewards and recocignition programs than they currently have.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more fun at work ! :-)

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