Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

made numerous profesional connections, was exposed to a wide variety of businesses

Cons

During interview was promised no more than 6 months travel per year, actual travel was 100%. Getting good assignments and promotions was not based on merit, only on ability to befriend the right people. This led to inexperienced/unqualified people in management positions who would steal ideas or place false blame on others to inflate their own importance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees to review their superiors. Do not lie about travel requirements during interview process

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

hi, unless you have an HR-approved letter of agreement (which is rare), the travel requirement for all billable consultants in US is "up to" 100%. this can vary due to the nature of the deployment ... More

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you land in a good place Capgemini can be one of the best places to work. There are some truly amazing people who are passionate about what they do and will work with you 100% to achieve what's best for everyone. Career growth is very real if you can position yourself the right way.

    Cons

    It's all about luck, if you're unlucky enough to land in an ugly spot you will not have job growth and will feel like the world is against you. There is, unfortunately, not much oversight in that aspect so if you land in a bad spot (and you'll know it very quickly) the best thing you can do is train up on something else and look to move to another department, job, account, whatever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to lower level feedback, these are the people who are actually experiencing the "real world" conditions.
