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 Management

- 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

    Stable job and decent pay

    Cons

    Senior management has a hard time recognizing talent. They surround themselves with mediocrity and recognize only individuals that are around them.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    worked with some very smart people in highly mobile work force, where most of everyone liked to be away from home, which is something that I could not understand. we worked on very interesting ideas, developing new concepts and technologies.

    Cons

    did not want to be road warrior but was not given choice, despite my preference to be local. self training time was not encouraged nor provided during bench times, e.g., self improvement time was impeded, even frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    be honest in bidding, i.e., the job bidding was very poor with cost estimates of utter fiction, manpower estimates that were random, and sales people that say anything or do anything to win a job. corollary is to be honest with employees who are sent into situations having impossible expectations by clients.
