Pros

-Mix of project oppertunites. You can work on a technology project for a while, then move to a business consulting project.
-As with any consulting firm, your life is pretty dynamic and always intesting.
-You can advance quickly if you have a skill set.

Cons

-Skillsets are built with experience, and it can be difficult to find a consistant line of work.
-As with any consulting firm, the project comes first when work/life balance is involved. You'll be asked to cancel personal things on a moments notice to keep the client happy.
-You've got to work very had to build personal relationships with the movers and shakers to ensure you have consistant work.
-No utilization bonus'
-Poor internal communication within the company. You won't know what projects are starting up, which ones are finishing, or who can help you with what.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Build a network of internal communication. It will pay dividends in better trained and informed consultants

    Pros

    A lot of great co-workers to gain knowledge from.

    Cons

    It is a sweatshop. Employees need 8 more hours added to a 24 hour day and another day added to the 7 day work week to get everything done. Employee capacity is not managed. Some people have too much work while others are walking around "on the beach". I worked at 130% capacity for over 8 months with management's knowledge. When I told management that I was burned out, nothing happened. 1 year later my department was moved to India. We'll see how that works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. There are many good employees and you need to appreciate them. Show them you respect them. It is more than just the "values" you put on a website, you have to walk the talk.

    Pros

    experiences and exposure to different industries you'll obtain while employed. The people you'll work with are also great and the experiences you'll have with them inside and outside of work can be rewarding. Consulting is a great starting point for a career.

    Cons

    the travel

    Capgemini is more focused on information technology consulting than strategy consulting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
