Current Employee - Manager in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Manager in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

-Good benefits, including those for domestics partners
-Fully inclusive EEO policy

Cons

-Extensive travel
-Difficult to achieve work/life balance
-Salary increases that come with promotions do not make up for the amount of additional work and responsibility that will be required with the new title.
-Only one type of career path; Up or Out. Does not have any career path for people that would like to just be an individual contributing SME.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Performance Management process is tedious, overly time consuming and ineffective for when 65% of the resources will only get a 3 rating. Too much emphasis is placed on the need to "toot your own horn".
-Year End roundtable process is no longer objective and fair, and HR doesn't hold people accountable for it, but just turns a blind eye. People Managers have very little say or power in the process, yet are made to believe they do. Account team pre-calibration roundtables are what really drives the ratings and really invalidates the need for true BU/SL ones.
-The manadate to cut costs has been taken way too far, and has caused you to not supply resources with adequate tools; laptops are being kept for 7+ years, corporate cell phones come without email access and data plans for your resources who are traveling 100% but are below the sr. manager level.
-Too much time and money is spent on continually "re-organizing" the group internally. Selling off our healthcare practice back in 2003 to fund and internal re-organization is one of the worst decisions ever made.
-Resources are not valued for their true efforts and length of service with the company, but instead are considered to be easily expendable at any time.
