    Pros

    Good Training content per corporate. More responsibilities in addition to software development

    Cons

    Projects are Very less duration only.
    Preference given to offshore people (or) less experienced people in us, due to less billing and show huge profit.

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

    Pros

    It generally had decent pay and smart people working there. It also had a decent building to work. Also learned a lot.

    Cons

    Travel was a huge burden. In addition it had all the negative corporate things like long hours just for the sake of them. Low impact. Extremely slow to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any specific advice. The Only thing that I can say is that you should do whatever you can to improve work life balance.

    Pros

    Employees have the opportunity to work on a wide range of engagements in various industries and geographies to develop and implement solutions using a wide range of technologies.

    Cons

    The employee must proactively make their skills, knowledge, and interests known to the relevant engagement managers in order to be considered for the most interesting engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider developing and deploying a solution to better match employees' skills with the needs of a given engagement - both within business lines and across business units.

    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Smart people, diverse work and friendly co-workers, depending on the office you are assigned to. Depending on your area of expertise, travel may be minimal.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as disposable commodities and, unless you have connections, it is extremely hard to advance once's career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company culture does not change, it will be impossible to retain top talent and to deliver top work.
