I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Top 1% 401K in the country.
No copay for Health insurance , really smart and cool people to work with (vast majority - eventually there is jerk or two as in every other company). Awesome life-work balance specially if you being 4+ years with the company.

Cons

$6000 Family health deductible? It's difficult. Bonuses are really hard to get them even if you are an A+ consultant it all depends on your rate-salary profit, once you do good with a client you are stuck with it forever.

If you ever hit the bench (or as peers call it "the beach") you will want to kill yourself cuz there is nothing to do. Although the story is that there is a guy there that has being on the beach on and off for 14 months now ( he is eating the unit profits and of course and he doesn't quit).

If you are a new employee you don't get any bonus or profit sharing at all for 6 months up to 1 year and you enter into a 3 year vesting 401K.

You get an awesome laptop that you can't use because it does not have elevated privileges.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I noticed that new Sogeti laptops are coming in with out admin privileges which is a major screw up from whoever made that decision and for me and the rest of the company is the same as the laptops are unusable.

Why don't you save the money from the unusable laptops and give more bonuses to more people.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Perfect employer for A type individuals, if you can sell project management or purple squirrel IT programming needs then you can make bank.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is horrible, what they describe as benefits aren't, you live under the "what have you done for me lately" or your out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You claim that your employees are your best asset but slave owners before the civil war were kinder.

    Deceptive management driven by numbers, a body shop

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    A good place for college grads. Sogeti tends to take fresh talent, train them somewhat, and bill them out at low rates. As skills grow people like this tend to be hired away by better companies.

    Cons

    Sogeti has unreasonable expectations for senior staff looking for rewarding work with more responsibility. The compensation model sends people running for the door. The bonus plan encourages long term billing at good rates with low salaries. Every year the company lowers the total compensation. Managers and VPs routinely focus on KPIs over growth, and often misrepresent at the expense of another to further their own agenda, or appease a superior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what type of company you want to be, and then execute. Don't try to be a solutions and services company when really it's a staff aug body shop.
