    Employees can be appraised at Account level rather than in department level.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Capgemini is a good place to start if you are fresh out of college with little experience. The benefits are also very good. Also Capgemini is a big name that many people in the industry recognize.

    Cons

    The raises for the annual salary are very weak. There is very little mobility in terms of working in accounts/projects that are outside of your Business Unit. It is very easy to get pigeon-holed in a practice or client for long periods of time. Work is very staff aug and managed service heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider competitive raises, especially for promotions. Consider having more mobility for staffing people on other Accounts that are in different BUs and more mobility for different practices. Do not require relocation for staffing on a project.
