    Pros

    If your career path is in IT, then consulting with Sogeti provides a good opportunity to learn more competitive IT skills while working at Fortune 500 clients. Sogeti works with the largest companies and provides employees with reasonable opportunities to gain experience and increase in responsibility. The talent level varies, but overall most Sogeti consultants are competent and good at working together. For recent college graduates or IT professionals early in your career, Sogeti would be a great place to start and build your experience. It may also be a good fit for IT professionals that are at the point in their career where quality of life is more important than career advancement. Generally, Sogeti consulting is a 40 hour a week job with reasonable pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is average and does not necessary increase regularly through the base salary. Sogeti pay increases come through bonuses that competitively sought after. Although there are a number of quantitative factors considered, the subjective aspects from management generally are the deciding factors in whether you get a bonus. Sogeti runs a lean operation to keep their billable rates competitive, so that affects both salary potential and employee support services. Employee development is below average because of this approach to cost management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sogeti has chosen a specific business approach to marketing their IT services, which makes it highly competitive with other consulting firms that charge higher billable hours. The local staffing approach also seems to work better at controlling costs and delivering better client satisfaction. One specific change that would benefit both employees in their career development and improve the skilled service offering would be to create a greater number of specialized practices, with a lower ratio of members to practice leaders. At the current ratio, there is less opportunity for practice leaders to be impactful in the the growth of their practices and the development of their members.

    Pros

    It was convenient to have a job here for a little while. They have some interesting clients, some interesting people to work with. So, if you're in need of a job, it's a good place to hang your hat while looking for something better. It's pretty easy to get hired, you don't have to be a rock-star to join as long as you have some experience.

    Cons

    People keep leaving and it's understandable why (on average people stay for a year or so?). Senior management seems out of touch and is totally not transparent. (People get replaced, offices close without any formal communication). The company is mostly a sales engine where selling is deemed 1000x more important than building skills or solutions. Loyalty towards employees is close to zero. Clients are often sold empty solutions because there is hardly anything that would qualify as a solution. If you work for them, you're expected to bill 100% of your time at solid margin, even if you've been given a fancy title such as Solution Lead or Practice Lead. Don't hit the bench for too long or you'll miss your target. (or you're out!). Salary is mediocre at best, which makes sense since they want to make 40% margin on every hour you bill. If you have other job options and have a hard time deciding look up a former Sogeti employee on linkedin and ask for their story (which will confirm mine)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose to invest in people, skills and solutions. Bet some serious money on developing new regions, new solutions and new skills. Stop to use 'cost-cutting' as your only weapon. If you try to reduce overhead further you'll end up a real temp agency. Also, you may want to stop the all-hands calls where the CEO rattles on for an hour stating that everything is fine: your employees look straight through all that as they see people leaving left and right. Treat people like adults and you may get something in return.You don't become a great company to work for by only saying 'you want to be like Google', that's plain stupid: it takes a serious cultural change, starting at the top.
