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

    Capgemini is a company with progressive ideals and values, and their internal initiatives give employees an opportunity to have a voice and participate in setting the strategy and achieving the vision of the company. There is also continuous evolution within the organization to meet customer needs, so there is ample opportunity to change jobs without changing employers.

    Cons

    Things move very slowly if they are not part of a priority initiative. And, standards are often determined outside the US. Those things combined mean that the "latest and greatest" often takes a while to reach the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better ways to blur the lines where appropriate between the various service lines... some opportunities for innovation and identifying new service offerings is lost when thought leaders are segregated.
