    Pros

    Benefits, mostly. Cant think of any other redeeming factor. If you are an entry-level guy, this might be a good place. Just might.

    Cons

    Too numerous to recount. Inept VP's, who actually believe they can get away with H1B-style BS and who are firmly convinced that 90's era management style is the winning style of today. Get these guys some decent training on how business is done in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some talent with professional, all-round, local-market work experience, instead of hiring half-cooked know-it-all's, and expats who bring in the work ethos of a pirate ship desperate for quick bounty.

    Pros

    You can travel, get hotel points, and frequent flyer miles.

    Cons

    The training program is horrendous. The work they have you do is mind-numbing, allowing for zero creativity. Employees are worked over 12 hour days and weekends without a choice. Management is unwelcoming and not helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely change your training program, actually pay for real trainers. Allow your employees to be creative and not forced to follow strict methodology that is inefficient. Reward employees on their actual work produced and not just the amount of hours put in.

    Pros

    around average market par rates. however you have to offset this against the volume of hours you will put in which pulls your hourly rate down. they have a training university which is good but don't expect to attend as most training is online to be done in your own time. average office spaces.

    Cons

    terrible top tier management. only focussed on billable time. no consideration for needs of parents but specifically fathers. underhand in everything they do. no training generally, learn if you can in your own time. expect pressure to do lots of free hours and burn travelling time. if your managing, expect to have mostly onshored and inexperienced cheap staff working for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a life, start being honest. put yourself in others shoes. have some integrity. grow some balls.

    Pros

    Worldwide company with possibility of international experiences

    Cons

    In CG is very strong "caste" system. Following this you are retrieving misleading information about opportunities, about company life. there is no possibility for self growing.
    There is no internal tools for administration, CTR and other support jobs for business realisation.
    There is not existing support for business developing.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team and the people are great , co operative and caring by nature .Majority of the crowd is helpful and have a great sense of initiative .

    Cons

    Appraisals after working 12-14 hours - NIL , Appreciation - Only for Girls ,Work from home for the complete year Only for Girls, Night shifts -Only for boys , Rotational shifts -only for boys .its Project SharePoint for one of the leading pharmaceutical company in the world . The manager and the lead as well as the hierarchy above including the business head encourage partiality , regionalism , disparity and favoritism . The HR even after showing clear proofs of the managers womanizing and favoritism have taken no action .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mumbai office is ripe with ample cases of favoritism , personal favours especially for girls , A lady BU head has been encouraging such culture . ppl who speak up are purposely given bad performance ratings to scare them. zero transparency in any management decisions , Unprofessional Management . This is a cumulative feedback even from other projects . employees are unhappy and that shows in the attrition's in the mumbai team in the last one year.The projects are going to other companies too because of such unprofessional culture.
