    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Big brand name to put on your resume and very diversified. They have excellent facilities if you want to learn something new and grow in your career. They have different teams for specific tasks and the management is helpful too.

    Cons

    Initially, i thought i was dealing with highly professional people to start with but soon i realized that was not the case. The senior guys in your team will make you work extra hours and won't even appreciate your effort. Most of the people i work with have ego problems and the entire team seems disconnected. They pay more attention towards politics than work. If they see someone is honest and working hard, they try to roll off that person. It's like they form a team within the team. They will time you for everything what time you are coming in to office, how many and how long are your breaks. They will micro manage you basically. They also promised me verbally that i will get my bonus this year but when i didn't hear anything and went to ask HR, they simply said NO on my face. This is a global company and you are competing globally with individuals for appraisals and not to mention you have to wait atleast 18 months before you can move up the ladder. One thing that stands out is that you can't trust a person when they are speaking from their mouth. They can deny the next day if they are in trouble so, if you are thinking to seek employment here please do keep in mind that you get everything written as a proof else you will be in trouble. I forgot to mention that you must be ready to work on peanuts if you are thinking of joining. I am frustrated enough that i am going to seek job opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a good job to a certain level but, when it comes to being fair to their employees, they back off so far that you can't even reach out to them. I advise you to learn on how to keep your employees happy so you could have more than OK and Dissatisfied ratings.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good learning and culture department

    Cons

    FSGBU which was perhaps one of the best places to work for as a small firm Kanbay, has seen an exponential decline in its culture, people and organization fundamentals. The senior management has no long term vision and most of them are around to simply make a quick buck and leave the organization. some major cons are - complete lack of respect for associates, low pay, lots of mergers with smaller companies but complete lack of integration of work cultures, fsgbu india treated as sweat shop, bureaucratic, pathetic support functions (hr, it, facilities)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect your associates and address their concerns rather than wishing them away. You cannot effectively service clients and live up to your flawed motto people matter, results count unless you nurture talent.
