    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with some good people, but there are many pockets of below average. Work life balance is ok and there is some flexibility.

    Cons

    The annual "round-table" review process is very political and it's about who you know. Every year, there is a predetermined number of high performers that will get rewarded with bonuses and raises. It doesn't matter if all 150,000 employees were the highest performers and brought in $100 M each. because of the predetermined number that can get a bonus and a raise, most come out as "meets expectations" (a 3 on scale of 1-5) and you will get no raise or bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break off from the French part of the main company because they could care less about concerns about North American employees

    Decent place to work if you can navigate the politics of a large firm.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent. Self directed training opportunities are available to enhance skills. Potential opportunities to work in many different areas and markets. Intelligent, experienced co-workers.

    Cons

    Political as with any large, global firm. Decisions are not always made based upon the best solution. Some of the management place their own interests and career progression above that of the collective group.

    Pros

    There are good people here, stuck in bad jobs. Corporate communications are very good and thorough.

    Cons

    Management does not communicate, and there is no sense of organization. Daily operations go from one fire drill to another. They do not have a good pipeline for new hires, and sometimes hire under qualified people out of desperation. They're also fairly dishonest in the sales process, claiming experience and expertise that they don't have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to do business with integrity, both internally and externally.
