    Capgemini - a great company, lots of travel

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great 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)

    Cons

    100% 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Enjoyed 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.

    Cons

    Travel 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Capgemini

    Pros

    Th 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for growth / career advancement / stretch roles
    Typically will receive a reprieve period after long periods of extended hours

    Cons

    Long Hours -- need to set boundaries / expectations with senior management
    End of year process could be improved, in both duration and process
