    I have been working at Capgemini

    Pros

    Exposure to big companies and opportunities in various roles

    Cons

    Internal change structures can bite sometimes.Once you've finished the 2 years you might still not know what you want to specialise in due to business demand outweighing personal choice of what you would like to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The graduates on the technology programme could do with a better structure and a wider option for various roles rather than the standard PMO or Jr Project management.

    Pros

    Large company
    Good employee support system

    Cons

    Too many managers sat doing nothing.
    Too much project management layers, with one engineer doing the real work.
    Managers on bonus schemes, whilst engineers get nothing
    Protects bullies who deliver projects
    Accountants manipulate profit margins to ensure customer thinks company is fair. It's really taking immoral advantage as the customer is unaware of the finer details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce numbers in management layers.
    Share bonus scheme to all, instead of taking the cream
