    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Have more fun at work ! :-)

    I worked at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, bonus, and nice benefits Internal training opportunities Having Big 4 consulting experience looks really good on your resume Lots of travel (might be a con)

    Cons

    If you have to use sick leave or are between projects for more than a couple of weeks, don't be surprised to get that dreaded call from Human Resources Top heavy organization - very political environment - short term focused Offshore everything mentality

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees with dignity and respect Understand that different markets support different margins and deal sizes, and set realistic internal expectations Fix offshore issues or move offshore operations to countries with better work ethic

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of my peers were as committed as me to deliver quality results. We did as much as we could with little to no support from HQ.

    Cons

    An extreme shortage of qualified resources and very little to none strategic vision to properly scope and sell projects. The team was then told to make it successful, and we were threatened with discharge if we couldn't use the unqualified resources to complete our deliverables on time.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management is part of the problem.

    Good customers and co-workers, but poor offshore management.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Initial Hire Process is Great.

    Cons

    Management is 90% Offshore and Out of Touch with North America.

    Advice to Management

    North America should be Managed from North America.

    Pros

    Sizeable, interesting projects. Management straight-forward and easy to deal with. Staff competent.

    Cons

    too much travel and overtime. You are essentially working like a contractor. No idea when a project finishes if you will be retained on bench or not and where / what your next project is going to be. You are not really working for Capgemini, that is only on paper. You are working for an Indian company called Kanbay

    Advice to Management

    Everyone knows that you are hiring just for a specific vacancy and the rest of ones tenure is based on who one knows, not what one knows. Performance reviews are barely even lip service.

    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 Management

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

    Lots of career opportunities available

    Cons

    Depends if you are hired in us or from india. if you are hired from india and moved to US, LIFE IS BAD. there is nothing called work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    focus on people management. management and sales are different areas, don't mingle them.
