    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are market related.

    Cons

    Very little in promotion or increases in 7 years; Very little support in transitioning when we lost a big account - I was told that one should not expect a job in a technical field to last this long anyway; Don't expect respect when trying to balance your family and work life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down to the factory floor sometimes. Show the loyalty and respect that you want from the assembly line.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you can stand the awful people they have in VP leadership positions then the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Too many to mention but they treat employees like assets instead of human beings. If you spend longer than 30 days on the bench then your next move is likely to be let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some really poor managers at the VP level who treat their staff extremely poorly, the Atlanta location is a prime example.

    Deficiency of leadership at the top levels in the U.S.

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Southfield, MI
    Former Employee - Manager in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is open and friendly which makes it easy to assimilate. It is not overly competitive like many of the other big firms. You are free to choose and stay in the level you want to be in without too much pressure.

    Cons

    Because of the flexibility, your career path is solely dependent on you and your ability to build a network. Performance management is poor. Leadership at the highest levels is weak at best. When you choose to leave they literally kick you out and when you're brought in, be careful about the level they offer you. They short you and consequently, your salary will be lower than you might expect. They do not budge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer direction to your employees, improve communication, offer more to high performers and take employee satisfaction, retention seriously. Treat those who choose to leave, better. Maybe some of us would consider using your services in the future. Think about that. Your reputation now precedes you. I know several people who have had the same experience as I did.
