    Pros

    Love the travel aspect. Pay for SAP Certification You are always surrounding with a support system No shortage of resources to help you get a task accomplished Opportunities are vast granted you are an ambitious person

    Cons

    Consulting is VERY similar to cliques in HS. You kind of have to brown nose your superiors; since the people who make it to manager level in consulting are very smart individuals they are often arrogant as well. Make sure they like you and you'll go far. If they dont, well....

    Travel, learning and becoming an expert are what you can expect. You will learn how to deliver technical programs, stay customer focused and be well compensated.

    Pros

    Sometimes you get quality engagements. You don't work more than 50 hours a week often

    Cons

    It is a very relationship based organization. If you don't know VP with power you are pretty much screwed. Pretty easy to be overlooked if you are not part of the right group. A lot of staff augmentation work

    Pros

    I was there since the E&Y days and it used to be a great place to work, with great people and solutions.

    Cons

    The French influence has destroyed all the positive aspects of Capgemini and they no longer put the clients or the employees first. They put profit first.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look in the mirror. If you put clients first and have happy employees the business will do well, Stand up for what is right
