    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company is doing well. Interesting work and the people are not hyper-aggressive. I like that I am left alone to run my engagements. There is a caring aspect to the company, which I have rarely seen in large companies. But I have seen multiple instances where people with personal stuff are supported. This is part of the culture.

    Cons

    The back office tools (expense reports, purchasing, etc) are really poor. HR systems are just so-so. The company does not grow great managers.

    Investment on sales is not the best

    Please invest in getting more clients and developing IP

    Pros

    Great company to learn new technologies, work with bright people from various backgrounds, training opportunities are good, projects are good as long as travel is not a problem

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best, upward career management needs improvement, travel could be a problem in the long run, so its good to be aware that its important to be a road warrior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With new technologies like video chat, it would be good to look at changing the 3-4-5 consulting workweek.

    Entrepreneurial culture with Freedom but overly restrictive internal tools and processes

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Jersey City, NJ

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial culture with freedom to achieve what you want. Great People despite the fact that the French Management has limited interaction or knowledge of the US market, resources and trends

    Cons

    Overly complicated French driven processes designed by people who sit in an office and never get out to client sites where the work really happens
     Antiquated tools and technologies (Laptops, Conference Bridges, web based tools etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Besides comp and work life balance the only thing your people need are good tools to do their job
    Please modernize the software, systems, bridges and computers they use on a daily basis. Its not enough to talk about CLOUD, Information Management and other emerging technologies without embracing them. Move to new technologies and cut reliance on ineffective IT support personnel. This will make your people happy and you will save $$$.

    Raise appreciation for Capgemini for what it is, not in comparison with other consultancies.
