    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Very easy to reach anyone in the company. Great pay. I enjoyed the job. Lots of access to various clients.

    Cons

    Work life balance would be the number one concern. It's a consultant gig; expect no less or more.

  2.  

    Good pay, client centric, sometimes chaotic

    Cons

    Hard to get visibility to the rest of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a high achiever program.

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility to work either from home or at the client site. 4 weeks of Time off.

    Cons

    The budget for Training to enhance your skills is scarce. One has to get trained on their own. Personal Internal team building is a challenge because of the kind of business we are in (Geographical spread).

    Pros

    Capgemini has a great workforce with intelligent, talented resources. They allow and encourage you to move up at your own pace. They bid on challenging projects that really motivate their teams to deliver difficult implementations.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be difficult with traveling and other demands faced on critical IT projects. Difficult to meet sales KPIs while also meeting delivery/billed utilization metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in growing resources. Take a more personal interest in mentoring the younger generation.

    political office culture. If you are good at it, this is the place for you. Time off policy is good. Nice 30 days in a calendar year. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    No promotions to be expected. No matter what you do :) . False promises. Will do it tomorrow attitude. No straight forward answers. Shady policies

    Pros

    Lots of travel if you enjoy traveling. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Projects can be long so if you do not like the location of a project you can be stuck there. Management can road block advancement if you are in a small service line. It's hard to advance or get training, you have to find the right people in the company to find that information. If you do not live in a city where there is a Capgemini office, it is very difficult to connect with management.
