    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for CG:
    - great people experience - nice people, professional, dedicated to delivering above expectations, supporting each other, easy to communicate with, etc. Really liked the corporate culture in general.
    - attention to personal development - trainings were provided fairly regularly, there are events for employees to get together from across the globe for a joint training experience / networking and such
    - i was lucky to have a very caring and involved line manager, who was giving good feedback and general support
    - as it's such a large company there's a lot of internal knowledge and best practices accumulated

    Cons

    Salary adjustment from year to year is not particularly big.
    There are times when you have to work extended hours (well, to be expected in our line of business).
    Lack of HR support when i was moving to another country and was willing to continue working for CG (it has offices in the country i live in now as well).

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    People matter. I really feel appreciated by my direct managers. Not so much by higher management. People in the teams are nice to work with and most of them try to help you if you have problems.

    Big plus is the feeling that you do not need to be ruthless without a personal life to successfully work and advance.

    Cons

    Big company - big bureaucracy. Many different kinds of contracts in the same company (cause of their history) and the contracts get worse for the employee the newer they are. Very KPI driven from international headquarter.
