    Pros

    Provided the opportunity to meet and build relationships with people from different backgrounds. I was presented with opportunities to work on things that broadened my scope of expertise.

    Cons

    The leadership did not necessarily invest a great time behind individual success within the company. It would have been nice for some to really care about one's success as they reach different milestones within the company.

    1. Ruining the freshers future - Worst training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide adiquate training for all managers. They might have good coding skills in Maingframe but that will not work with today technologies

    Pros

    Capgemini has a very entrepreneurial environment which allows flexibility in support of our clients.

    Cons

    Current North American Leadership has not followed the Group tag line “People Matter, Results Count” Unlike other areas of the world, this is not a value that they follow in North America. Also way too political in NA!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    North American Leadership really needs to put more effort on their people. Capgemini is in the business of people. So instead of pretending that you care, its time to act on “People Matter, Results Count

    Good pay, intelligent co-workers but limited professional growth opportunities.

    Former Employee - Sales Operations Manager
    Former Employee - Sales Operations Manager

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Capgemini has an excellent benefits package and most co-workers are very intelligent. Overall I was very satisfied with my employment there and only wish I could have avoided a reduction in force through a reassignment within the company. Compensation was very good.

    Cons

    Leadership is struggling to win business in the Cloud services space. Rate cards tend to be on the higher end and make it hard for Capgemini to compete with Indian pure-plays. Not enough bench talent, leading to subcontracting that eats into profit margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize offshore resources more frequently and more intelligently. Employ more enterprise architects, expecially for pursuit support.

    Not a terrible place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Capgemini

    Pros

    Some people work ridiculous hours, some don't. I'm in the category of people that don't. I work my set schedule, then go home. I have some managerial duties after hours that won't apply to 90% of the folks hired.

    Cons

    You can only move up once per year, if you start in January, you will wait a minimum of 2 years to get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up the "everyone gets promoted at one time" model.
