    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rigidity in the use of the internet, Staff cant use anyother site except google and yahoo for their emails. Contracts staff are scared with very funny stories and perm do all lot of things and get away with it

    Pros

    Great for opportunistic people to develop your career. Loads of differing positions and jobs and management willing to let you try them. Good review system if you like change. Will assist you in difficult times. Flexible to a point.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be successful if you just want to do your job then go home. Do more - get more!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ambition is brilliant however ambition beyond capability drives failure.

    Pros

    Lives up to most of its aspirations
    Great people to work with
    Constant puch for personal development
    Constant push to improve senior management layer (in-house)

    Cons

    I work in Aspire - we are a little insulated from the rest of Capgemini. Politics outside my bubble can be problematic
    As any big organisation management is layered with articulate incompetent
    External hires are brought in on big salaries often leaving better existing staff languishing behind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not perfect but on the way...

    I have been working at Capgemini

    Pros

    The best reason to work here that I can find is the people. As with most places there is a good mixture of people from all backgrounds and abilities. Alot of the them are very friendly and of course you get ehe odd one or two who aren't so friendly.
    The work life balance is very good too. Alot of the managers realise the importance of having a good home life and try not to let work impact too much upon it; they won't ask you to do overtime unless it is abhsolutely critical.

    Cons

    The payrise and promotion proceedure. 364 days of good solid hard grafting can be cancelled out by 1 bad day at the office. Sometime the management do not realise that they're employees are humans and will make mistakes. Employee reviews can be based on the team pleaders expectations without taking into account the employees abilities which results in a negative review. The payscales are incredibly abismal too. Three years on the same wage without any payrise to account for inflation or good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best people to ask about work and workloads are the people on the shop floor themselves. Listen to them and take on board what they say. These people are the most informed here and their advice should be listened to. Don't have a set opinion or answer in you mind and implement it regardless as it just fustrates us and shows us that you don't listen or respect us.
