    Pros

    Friendly and relaxed work environment, opportunities to work with and learn various new technologies.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay, not enough external training opportunities to improve skill set, quite a lot of travelling may be required depending on the role.

    Pros

    Some fantastic people you will definitely learn from and a vast array of clients and sectors to work in, should you want to develop the breadth of your experience. Senior management are, I found, very good and committed to business success as well as being pretty open to hearing the views of all staff. Fairly flat management structure for such a big organisation. Good culture.

    Cons

    You will be expected to earn your way, play a part in internal as well as fee-earning activities, so accept that early on and you will be ok. You will need to develop an internal network too, in order to advance - you are expected to be proactive in your own career in Capgemini and you wont get handed everything on a plate.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a little more on the side of work/life balance for consultants, especially those working away from home so much - give them options when they start to struggle with this.

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable, good opportunities for grads IF they get assigned a role quickly, lot of decent people.

    Cons

    60% of your role is doing what you were hired to do but your performance will be rated on how well you fit the corporate model, so you will spend a lot of time on non-job related stuff if you want to succeed. Focus is firmly on profits, not people and definitely not on client satisfaction. Core values much stTed but not followed by central CG management. Expect to be despised by your client and forget any sort of work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    corporate management values are not the same as local delivery values. You are losing good people and your inability to deliver will in the long term damage those much sought-after profits.

    Pros

    Personal development, reputation, experienced professionals, good values and ethics.

    Cons

    Its a big company so working your way up from the bottom is near impossible unless you know someone higher up in the hierarchy (hence the title) Grading system and appraisal process is unfair in my opinion. Pay is famously poor compared to other companies will offer.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty & Fun - consider this.

    Pros

    Anyone with interest in technology can do this job however they do not really promote learning new skills, introducing new ways of working or allowing a change to the mold

    Cons

    Promotion only through a lot of paperwork. Essentially you get promoted if you can produce reviews, comments and overall and just suck up to upper management. You don't actually have to do anything useful there. If you are a programmer never go here.

    Pros

    Some really good people within this company. Very good at managing difficult situations with difficult customers. Hard work of individuals contribute to success.

    Cons

    Layer upon Layer of management means that it takes forever to do anything! The company only really works due to the hard work and commitment of those in the lower ranks.
