Pros

-Mix of project oppertunites. You can work on a technology project for a while, then move to a business consulting project.

Cons

-No utilization bonus'

    Pros

    Most people you work with are bright and motivated.

    Cons

    It's an uphill battle to get on a good project as a new employee, to get managers to trust you. You have to sell yourself internally every day, and it's nerve-wracking to have to interview internally and externally for each engagement AFTER you've already gone through several rounds of interviews to gain employment by Capgemini. Also, the management doesn't seem to care if you are not challenged or happy on your project. You're billing if you're on a project, and that's the only thing that matters. It's nearly impossible to switch projects if you are unhappy or if it s a poor fit, even after many months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take feedback from more junior employees to heart. Don't dismiss them.
