    Pros

    Good benefits. Continuous projects. If you are settled with a client, it would be for many years to come. Flexible environment.

    Cons

    Salary is a big minus. Doesn't care much about the employees. Excuses for everything an employee asks by quoting their policies etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as people, not resources.

  2. The company has smart people but doesn’t always execute well on client engagements.

    Pros

    There is a strong focus on client service. Some ongoing training is provided. The professional staff are generally smart and capable.

    Cons

    The internal technology is lacking and not modern. There is inadequate integration between Capgemini FSGBU and the overall Capgemini organization. Not enough attention is placed on staffing client engagements with the optimal professionals for the requirements and scope. I saw a tendency to fill project roles with someone with some relevant experience; but not necessarily the best person to fill the role.

    Advice to Management

    Improve all aspects of the technology provided to client service professionals. Improve time reporting to be inclusive of all hours worked; not just entering 8 hours per day. Improve the process for approval of travel, time & expense submissions, etc. so that it is not so cumbersome.

  3. An okay experience

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, very nice co-workers overall, opportunity to work abroad if you get on the right project, pretty good at promoting entry-level consultants after 2 years

    Cons

    Staffing issues, not much say on which projects you can get on, projects can last a long time, lack of training opportunities, lack of strong office culture

    Pros

    like any consulting company this review is specific to the practise (SAP in my case) you are part of.
    General work life balance is good, people get promoted although sometimes based on seniority, some exceptionally good guys are always there and if you can get hands on people from other countries like European ones, you can get exposed to some great work.

    Cons

    Cross country integration is poor
    Training is average, people are not top tier
