  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Capgemini (more than 10 years)

Pros

- There is NO Pros in this company. Except it gives you a brand name of consulting.
- However a lot of US clients dont know the name. So.....
- Compensation is pathetic and doesent keep up with the market.

Cons

- Top Management is extremely inept and uncapable
- Extremely political and that starts right at the top of the food chain.
- Company runs without a vision (First TELCO and split and now HTEC) What is this ???
- Mediocrity is rampart
- Buzzwords rather than results oriented
- Favoritism is the only way to get promoted or higher rating
- I was surprised to see that during the round tables, the top performers were automatically pushed down for the lower rating, while the laggards having solid network were pushed to the top.
- Top Talent doesent stay with the company for long time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- 99% of the VP's are completely redundant, incapable and free loaders on work done by the junior level staff. Most of them should be let go. Those who are not let go should be given monthly targets and held accountable. There is ZERO vision ANY of the VP provides.
- 80% of the Principals should be let go and replaced. Whoever are left should be whacked to get sales.
- Respect the employees. If it weren't for them, YOU wouldn't have a job !!!

    Pros

    Salary was fair and Individuals wanted to do what was right. You need to make sure that this is the right fit for you.

    Cons

    Cap (at least the Capgemini America, there are a dozen different operating companies and each one is different) is trying to apply the big consulting model on what should be light weight POCs and implementations. The management does not want to listen to options. And, despite their mantra of life work balance I was continually working 60 hour weeks. In my group there was 50% turnover in the 2 years I was there this included the VP and several other group leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new ways to implement your SaaS offerings. You hire people with experience in the field but do not listen to the ways that they have been sucessfull.
