I worked at Capgemini

Pros

The people are outstanding and the work is ever changing, challenging and interesting. The overall compensation is also very good to excellent. My Vice President is second to none in terms of abilities.

Cons

Not much other than the hours can be long and travel can sometimes be hectic. Also, it's imperative that you have a Vice President that understand the business and is competent. Without it, you're in big trouble.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell more and more projects that are customer facing, IT can be very dry and the people at Cap have a diverse array of talents and want sexier projects.

    Pros

    Good place to get experience in IT consulting.

    Cons

    Capgemini wins consulting work based on price, chiefly by leveraging the outsourcing model. Leadership has made it clear they want more consulting work to be done by Indian colleagues to achieve this goal.

    The CEO has made it clear, "this is an IT consulting firm, so this isn't the place for you if that's not the kind of work you want to do." There are not many opportunities outside of IT work here, even though there are many non-IT consultants hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't increase margins AND outsource more at the same time.
    If this an IT consulting firm, why are there non-IT groups?

    Pros

    You will get exposure to fortune 500 clients. You will be working with clients that are usually at the top of the organization chart. Typical assignments require that you find solutions to very complex problems. You will have to opportunity to travel and see several major cities in the US.

    Cons

    The constant travel will wear you down. The review and promotion process is somewhat unfair as typically the managers responsible for your reviews and promotions are not the same managers that are on site with you on your day to day projects. This makes it difficult to represent you in their 'round table' discussions consultants are ranked against each other. These rankings form the basis for promotions and for division of the fixed pie of bonus and merit increase dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to place consultants on local projects.
