    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Culture, everyone is aspiring to grow and very respectful of one another. Entrepreneurial culture, you manage and drive your career.

    Cons

    If work life balance is important to you, this may not be your cup of tea. The flip side of the entrepreneurial culture is people work long and hard to achieve results.

    Slow to update resources like laptops for engineers.

    Job shadow an engineer on a client site with Capgemini laptop to experience the poor response that limits ability to serve clients' immediate needs in a timely fashion.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I've met some really awesome hard working tech heads

    Cons

    Your experience will vary by group/contract, I know someone very close to me that has a very different experience at CG. It's the luck of the draw. as for me...

    There is ZERO work/home life balance. I get called any time of the day or night whether or not I'm oncall, and have been reprimanded for not taking my work computer on vacation or when taking comp time after working 70 hours in a week (which a manager told me to take).

    Managers have zero respect for your personal time and will throw you under the bus to save their own skins. Management and PMT are both horribly disorganized and incompetent. Customers run roughshod over management with demands because of the pressure to keep accounts at all costs.

    The people who signed off on the contract I work on should all be fired. When I learned of the punitive clauses my jaw hit the floor. I had NEVER heard of a contract with such completely impossible metrics and such wide jagged teeth.

    In the contract I work for, there's about three dozen people, and I cannot think of a single non-management employee who isn't actively looking for a new job desperate to get away from the life sucking ordeal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to set boundaries for customers. It doesn't matter how big of a contract it is for you. if you let them push you, and vicariously your employees around, you will soon find you're scraping the bottom of the barrel for hires. If you try to give the customer everything they want, you won't provide the customer the service they need.

    People signing and bidding contracts should have experience in the related field. Call centers need call center managers with a business focus to provide the bid. Programmers need account reps experienced in running a dev team. Network teams should be bid by qualified engineers. Storage teams should be bid by storage engineers.

    It's obvious from the metrics in the contract, that the person bidding this has ZERO experience in the field, only -POSSIBLY- experience in a related IT field

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Truly diverse workforce, open feedback with senior leadership, people-friendly, values honesty and collaborative work culture. Yearly performance reviews are fair & realistic.

    Cons

    Performance Expectations are very high but compensation is slightly lower than comparable firms. Constant travel wears the individual down eventually. Rotation between client-facing and internal roles is not clearly defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the variable compensation to match the true annual performance of the employee - don't match it with the normalized performance rating
