    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation is good.

    Cons

    Horrible Middle Management. Most of the PMPs have no clue about Project Management -they are not aware of basic SDLC. A complete mess. No growth opportunities. Most of the managers are busy taking credit for the work done by their team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the middle level incompetent managers.

    Pros

    If there is one may be good salary package but beware!!!

    Cons

    Company looks more like a outsourcing agent .
    Most of the projects they use outdated technologies and process they follow is very lame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of just basing all responsibility/blames to low level employees. Please do take up the responsibility and ownership for creating better work culture

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant (P5) in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you interested in working like a core technical guy, only then it is good

    Cons

    First, there is a US, Europe counter part for every project so Indians wont be able to get any opportunity to work directly with the clients.
    Second, there is not consulting work in the whole company, not sure of Capgemini consulting but haven't heard anything big.
    Hikes and Promotions forget it- you will be treated as another technical person in the company and no one will even try to understand the value a B school grad can add. Moreover the average annual hike is way lees than industry standards
    More or less all the teams are victims of internal politics - mba grads usually join at senior consultant level and a technical guy will take 8-10 years to reach at that level. Now the manager who is a technical guy will not be able to accept the situation and will try to pull you down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up... whatever policies you are trying to implement for mba grads, those are not there. - look at you mba grads attrition rate and their satisfaction level.
    Change your strategy of implementing these policies if you really want to grow

    Pros

    Easy going culture, thats about it.

    Cons

    Expected to work and deliver result beyond grade requirements. Career growth and salary increases very limited.
    Leave and then return at significantly better terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more money and keep them or risk losing the best staff.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Collegues, client portfolio,some feeble training,interesting projects, work from home cant say anymore it paid my bills etc etc etc

    Cons

    Review system crap
    Low pay
    Only good for interns grads starting out or experienced individuals not if you want to specialise
    Bullying managers
    Incompetant HR
    Treats its only assett- staff like crap
    Stuck into roles you dont want if your not experienced or were benched for too long
    Bullied into accepting testing or pmo roles if you were on bench too long
    Resisting another unrelated career role will impact pay and promotion
    Prepare to become Jack of all trades master of none
    If your not holborn based your invisible to everyone - this will affect bench and promotion
    If you can brown nose play politics and spend late nights socialising it will be fine
    If your head down in your work but not doing above networking no pay rise or promotion
    Spend late nights sometimes 9pm or more
    Expected to stay behinde if other p.m or collegues do the same.
    Not allowed to ever say anything negative ever
    Dont make lasting friends if your on projects for 6 months people get pulled on and off
    No one cares if you join or leave
    Competitive nature of people will see them stomp all over you to get to the top...trust resides with a mere 3 or 4 people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognising individuals hard work and not just those that make lots of noise and do nothing
    Investing in grads to watch them leave- actually help and support their careers instead of plugging them on any old role free for you to make money
    Review system is crap its based on who you favour and like and woeked the 90 percent yr over someone whose delievered very well but maybe not for the enteriety due to role being pulled.
    Stop the bullying the forcing roles, the suppressive unfriendly lying environment you have

    Pros

    cant think of much at this moment

    Cons

    Replace experienced people with college grads who know nothing about the business just to save margin and looks good (more ppl on the team). The management group has gone down hill compare with few years ago.

    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Brand name, that's it..
    That's it
    That's it

    Cons

    Noooooooooooo Respect for employees.. they will treat them as a slave.

    Hidden cost in CTC, they will pay the variable pay yearly once, but dont expect 100%.. u will get around 30% only. While releaving the company u won't get the variable pay.. I loosed around 1 lakh while coming out.

    They will put u in the client place.. but u won't get expected work.. I was a developer but I got a testing work... when I asked to move back to Capgemini from client place they said minimum 18 months have to work at client location.

    U can't expect to work in only one city.. when they said u have to move other city.. u have to go.. else they will tell to resign.

    If u were in bench.. u won't get a project very easyly(3-4 months).. and they won't provide any system to u.. they will have 2 system only for bench people(for 100 people)..u have to b in queue to get it.. and they will expect u to b in office for 9.30 hr per day..

    When ur in bench also if u put paper... they won't relieve u.. before 3 months.. I was in bench for 4 months and 3 months in notice period.. I wasted 7 months over there. They said its company rules..

    CTC will look great.. but take home will be less.

    No good hikes if your in good revenue project also.. std will be 5 to 8 % only.

    U can't buyout the notice period. Either if ur going for hirestudy or medical letter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls monitor the HR team.. how they r intracting with employees.. and what they r doing.. rules should be favor for employee also.. not for company always..
