    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.

    Cons

    There are no cons if you are willing to work hard, travel and be customer focused. You must like working on teams and continuous improvement and innovation.

    Pros

    Got involved in many different kind of projects that helped expand the breadth and depth of expertise in many areas.

    Cons

    Tactical management style for most parts, without a strong vision and strategy to invest in growth areas and in people.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink whether to play in the market based on cost versus differentiation; spend more time, money and effort in developing talent and marketing the brand.

    Pros

    Relatively flat organization when compared to corporate America or larger Systems Integrators.
    Generally good reputation with clients
    Opportunities for career advancement
    Good technology for consultants on the go

    Cons

    Organization structure very siloed - Financial services, Sogeti (IT staffing) and Strategy (Capgemini Consulting separate businesses with very little interaction or teaming except on a transaction basis
    Some "old school" senior management very entrenched - more interested in internal politics than customer facing
    Annual review process, mentoring etc. very informal, could use more structure

    Advice to Management

    If you simplify your structure and integrate across the "towers", you will find greater success in the market. Make sure you are doing right by your staff with a more disciplined, less perfunctory review and mentoring process.

    Pros

    Great benefits, if you can find the right mentor in your network it's great. As with all large consulting firms, there is always a new challenge and it's all about who you know who can help you

    Cons

    They need a lot of specific technical skills to fill roles, which puts you in jeopardy if you are on the bench

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time supporting internal training rather than turnover to meet client needs.

    Pros

    Truly diverse workforce, open feedback with senior leadership, people-friendly, values honesty and collaborative work culture. Yearly performance reviews are fair & realistic.

    Cons

    Performance Expectations are very high but compensation is slightly lower than comparable firms. Constant travel wears the individual down eventually. Rotation between client-facing and internal roles is not clearly defined.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the variable compensation to match the true annual performance of the employee - don't match it with the normalized performance rating

    Pros

    They have unlimited Sick Days and some leadership folks are really good. Growth seems very good if you know the right people.

    Cons

    The office culture is very bad. The people talk behind each other's back. Clearly the people groomed in the company have signature culture of talking behind people. Very little respect for women.

    Advice to Management

    Take more action on the culture,
