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

    Pros

    Capgemini is a good place to start if you are fresh out of college with little experience. The benefits are also very good. Also Capgemini is a big name that many people in the industry recognize.

    Cons

    The raises for the annual salary are very weak. There is very little mobility in terms of working in accounts/projects that are outside of your Business Unit. It is very easy to get pigeon-holed in a practice or client for long periods of time. Work is very staff aug and managed service heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider competitive raises, especially for promotions. Consider having more mobility for staffing people on other Accounts that are in different BUs and more mobility for different practices. Do not require relocation for staffing on a project.

    Pros

    Nothing that was positive to say.

    Cons

    The so called practice is not a practice at all. A practice is defined as a group of people that is organized around a central theme with communications and objective. I was a serior manager in the practice one of 3 or 4 (not sure how many there were because there was never any communication on the practice. In 7 months there was never a practice meeting, a group call or anything else. There were no stated objectives, nothing.... The project I was on was just as bad. It was run by non SFDC personnel, planned for by non SFDC personnel, and there were two senior managers on the project from SFDC that were functioning as business architects. We were excluded from working on the things you would think a senior person should work on: SOWs, Plans, etc... Non of it happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not sure as I think it this is a systemic issue that runs through Capgemini. I saw nothing in the time I spent with Cap to be contrary to the idea that something was different outside of the SFDC practice.

    Internal Employee tools are not upto mark such as Timesheets, Aprraisal Tools, Expense sheets

    Employees can be appraised at Account level rather than in department level.

    Salary should be competing with industry standards.
