    Pros

    The exposure and capacity to move around departments and areas of IT is a plus.

    Cons

    Redundancy process is a stealth exercise. No communication around what is happening in business units and where there cut backs are stemming from.
    Relationship with client is one of deceit, trickery and shoddy delivery. A result of not hanging onto key knowledgeable resources in the support teams, it's dead inutile not a peoples company and their tag like 'people count results matter' is laughable.
    The big bosses at the top are so disconnected from the people on the ground that are delivering the profits and nations for capgemini. No pay rises and bonuses paid out in many years.... Yet sending out communication bragging on how well the company is doing in profits... Shameful behaviour.
    Hotel behaviours and culture means certain groups will always keep jobs within their cliques and not offer them fairly to other succesful and more suitable candidates. Hiring process is based on who you know, you don't necessarily have the right personalities for certain high level and client facing jobs!

    Advice to Management

    No advice all for a group of people that are so far removed from reality.

    Pros

    1. There is no work in the company
    2. Job is safe at VP level - till now not even a single VP has been fired in India. For others you should keep two offers in your pocket during your career in the company,
    3. Hikes are in range of 3% to average rating of employee ( 3 rating)
    4. Capgemini India lacks leadership and vision.

    Cons

    1. HR is spineless
    2. Promotions are given to selected few who are in the inner circle of the VPs -
    3. One tends to loose skills as day passes
    4. Sr. pressure you and threaten you by forcefully putting one in PIP program

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the VPs and get new one

    Pros

    It is the safest job on earth. No one would question. Even worse, mediocrity is an accepted standard in these IT cos

    Cons

    One would get extremely lethargic once we decide to move on and find something that is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your safety couch and start innovating.

    Pros

    Some very genuine people who care deeply and are not moved by egos. Sadly, this number in Australia and NZ is diminishing extremely rapidly.

    Cons

    Poor vision, no actual mission and a company THAT DOES NOT LIVE THEIR VALUES! Workplace bullying is rampant in the company, they do not know how to use a PIP appropriately and there is very poor executive management in Australia. This is now being shown by the directors and now vice presidents leaving as the company is having difficult times in trying to attract and retain both talent and customers - and guess where that hits - the pocket book. A radical overhaul of the executive management is required by experienced leaders - not those who have worked for a company that has grown aggressively in the past several years in spite of itself.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the executive level of management and start recognizing the talent you have. The other consulting firms are certainly taking note and snapping up your good people!

    Pros

    Employee Friendly and you can have balance work/life environment

    Cons

    Not good package for Freshers,Senior management is not very appreciative and you have to fight for Mid and Annual year reviews to get promoted despite of you doing good work

    Advice to Management

    Some of very senior people are there from Ages and use the same old methodology and hence CapG is lacking somwhere in market

    Pros

    Large company
    Good employee support system

    Cons

    Too many managers sat doing nothing.
    Too much project management layers, with one engineer doing the real work.
    Managers on bonus schemes, whilst engineers get nothing
    Protects bullies who deliver projects
    Accountants manipulate profit margins to ensure customer thinks company is fair. It's really taking immoral advantage as the customer is unaware of the finer details.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce numbers in management layers.
    Share bonus scheme to all, instead of taking the cream

    Pros

    - Nothing as of now. There are no Pro's . You have to console yourself that it is a good company as you are alreay trapped.

    Cons

    -there are soo many . While hiring if they say it is for client location .. then never ever dare to join.That means you are hired for LBS (its different BU in CG) . They will never communicate to you that they have 18months bond in this LBS BU. and once you joined this BU, You have to be in client side( you will be joining as a contractor in some different company). you cant even change even if they have in house projects. once you will get release from one client, they will put you in some other client and you have to clear that client interview. If you are failed to clear more than one client interview, they will send you to some other location (unwanted transfer).

    Advice to Management

    - Doubt that there is any management or not. :P
