    I worked at Capgemini full-time for 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

    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.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a Business consultant, you get access to many processes and info's about mature companies. This kind of knowledge is instrumental to have a fast track introduction into the "real business" after the university

    Cons

    The issue is with all Consultancy firms is that they are tending to have expertize on everything and to reuse same recommendations on and on. Not all companies are like that, but my opinion is that the majority of them are like that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that the Consultancy companies should be focused in one or two areas, not to all kind of business

    Pros

    Opportunities for both travel and training.

    Cons

    In a company of this size, there are too many layers of management.

    Promote from within and offer benefits that will keep employees around longer.
