Great compensation-but don't expect much else once you're in the door.

Pros

Good career opportunities, good pay... they do take care of their employees.

Cons

If you work as a consultant, Sogeti's only concern is for their client. That means, when it comes to personal life-work balance, they just do not care. Also, don't think that they care about your career advancement once you are in the door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help consultants and contractors to feel like they are a part of the company.

    A company poised for great innovation but stuck in trying to copy others

    Pros

    Sogeti is one of the best places to develop professionally as they invest heavily in continuous education and training. They are a local company with global reach and offer much in terms of knowledge capital and talent. Having local offices you can get Big 5 consulting experience without the constant travel.

    Cons

    An identity crisis in terms of corporate strategy. Wedged between a staffing and a solutions company it is often difficult to discern strategic direction. Trying to be all things to all clients has somewhat stagnated growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on growth and innovation and less on profit. Focus on capturing the small and medium sized businesses and not just the Fortune 500.

    Pros

    They have the best 401k matching I've seen. The Health insurance is High Deductible but it's free. So if you're really sick or really healthy it's good. They offer up to $12k per year in bonuses and 5% profit sharing. Company sponsors Social Events such as sporting events, theatre (tickets to "Wicked"), Monday Night Football get togethers etc..

    Company provides training and free books. Free for the most part at least.

    Cons

    When you find out your billing rate and realize you are getting about 25% of it, it's a bit disheartening. I'm sure this is true for most consultants, but it still sucks considering how underpaid most people here are. The bonus program relies heavily on you working overtime especially if you are a lower level consultant with a billing rate much less than others.

    It's more of a staffing firm than a solutions provider. many consultants will get stuck rewriting old vb code, or rewriting legacy vb6 applications and not doing new solutions. It's a luck of the draw basically on which project you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would offer an alternative to the high deductible insurance. I wouldn't use Aetna either. I would put in semi-annual raises and reviews. I would also offer much more in the way of salary.

    Overall, as you can see from others is, it's a good place to work, you just won't get paid what you are worth.
