Capgemini is run by lawyers and accountants. Not a good place to be if you are in outsourcing.

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

Pros

Good pay and decent benefits. Many smart and good people to work with. Lots of freedom to work your way (that's not always good though).

Cons

Group leadership (CEO, CFO, SBU CEOs) are bureaucrats and not client-friendly or visible in NA. The NA leadership in Applications Services is weak and not trusting of one another. Infrastructure SBU is a mess and poorly led. BPO seems to be doing well but questionable leadership. Cap is very "balkanized" and different parts of the company are set up to compete against each other (i.e., Sogeti v Apps One). Cap has eliminated the outsourcing SBU and merged it into the projects business, which has resulted in Cap becoming a minor player in outsourcing deals. Cap's focus is entirely on margin improvement rather than revenue and client growth. This has mainly translated into the movement of many NA jobs to India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create and communicate the strategy for the Group and the SBUs (it doesn't exist in my experience). Focus on client industry sectors as primary organizational units. Incent the business units to work together to serve clients. Group and SBU leadership needs to be actively visible in NA. Reinvigorate the outsourcing business or exit it entirely - otherwise you are wasting your money and people's time.

    Pros

    Great, friendly people
    Lots of experts in the field
    The company's on track to grow in the next 5 years

    Cons

    For a tech consulting company, the technology we use is seriously outdated
    There are always going to be some overly competitive people who will be inappropriate and ruin it for the rest of us
