Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

I worked at Capgemini full-time (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

    Pros

    not the standard it job - you get to wear different hats and you can make your work as challenging or easy as you want it to be. Of course - performance reviews will look at how many challenges you took on in addition to your regular role.salary seems ok compared to other regular IT firms, but may be on the lower end when compared to other consulting companies.

    Cons

    Depends on a few big clients. Need additional training programs and more involved on boarding process. You feel totally lost the first 1 or 2 months if you are new to consulting. work life balance is hard to maintain depending on client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more approachable and open.
