    Pros

    Flexibility in work environment, great colleagues with very little politics and a culture that fosters how you achieve your results - not just the results you achieved. Compensation and benefits were good and they provided profit sharing which increased the 401K.

    Cons

    Some what difficult to navigate the various organizations and leverage know-how developed at various clients. Career paths were limited and targets for the levels were not aligned to the types of positions held with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a better career paths and performance targets that align to the types of roles held at a client.

    Pros

    Exposure to lots of projects, great mentors, varied roles and industries. Learned a heck of a lot. Polished my presentation and facilitation skills

    Cons

    Extensive travel for long term consulting projects can put a strain on personal life and family. Lots of selling and self promotion required

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is meaningful work, even for the more junior people. Allow a lot of client interaction and don't be scared that a consultant might be hired by a client.

    Pros

    Outsourcing and consulting is a tough business. These folks gave me many opportunities to learn a tremendous amount about leading global OS engagements.

    Cons

    Outsourcing and consulting is a tough business. Capgemini competes with larger US HQ'd players, but they have some sharp folks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being patient with ambitious folks like I was, providing us with room to make mistakes here and there.

    Pros

    Great organization to work if you are able to navigate across the BU's to pick up your kind of work.

    Cons

    There is red-tapism, favoritism and lots of political play which may be a deterrent for career progression.

    Advice to Management

    If you can cut through the red-tapism and really inmplement "people matter results count" it would do wonders to the organization

    Pros

    It's a good consulting firm to get into right out college with a lot of opportunities to try various projects and industries. Pretty good young age presence.

    Travel policies are mediocre and sometimes feel like you can get lost in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on training programs and easier way to get expenses through for frequent travelers.
