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

    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.

    Pros

    Starting out, I think they have a lot to offer. New (especially campus) hires can get a lot of good experience and eventually opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    As time goes by, one starts feeling taken for granted. Training becomes more and more your problem; issues you bring up you're told to just "handle it".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't read these, and if they did they wouldn't take action on them anyway, so no advice.

    Former Employee - Principal
    Former Employee - Principal

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of smart, motivated, friendly people. I sill stay in touch with several colleagues, it was hard for me to leave the company.

    Cons

    Because much of their revenue comes from Europe (where the economy stinks), raises were minimal and budgets were tight because the US needed to make up for Europe's struggles. Also, technology skills of most consultants were good, but a bit behind the curve (not terribly cutting edge).

    Pros

    Open to change, always trying to innovate and bring new value. Always trying to stay ahead. Survival of the fittest.

    Cons

    Sometimes chaotic. Can be hard to understand what success looks like. Often the client appears to be your manager so can be hard to see where Capgemini fits in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better system for knowing who are your most talented people and manage them differently to others. Use special assignments to test and compare high potentials, rather than relying to much on personal relationships.
