Not the best, but not the worst

Former Employee - Project Manager
Former Employee - Project Manager

I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

6-week bench if contract ends without cause
PTO increases the longer you work
Severance pay commiserate with number of years you worked if client fires you
Healthcare premiums are paid for whole family

Cons

They do not have your back if client fires you regardless of how long you've worked there
No overtime - everything goes into 'comp time' bucket
Weirdly arcane bonus system
No pay raise when bill-rate to customer increases
Health care is catastrophic but has a higher deductible than the most you can withhold in an HSA
You have to do a whole 'review process' as if you aren't nothing more than an income-generating resource for them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better healthcare
Stop trying to be a hybrid - right now there are all the disadvantages of both being treated as a 'real' employee of a company AND all the disadvantages of being a wageslave farmed out to other companies (i.e. a vendor/contractor). The few pros of being treated as an employee are outweighed by the crud you have to put up with (such as not getting any overtime you earned).

    Formerly very talented employee friendly company approaching a low point

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Self-driven career growth
    No travel required, yet still consult and gain experience at big clients*
    6% 401k match...1.5 to 1 so it's really 9%**
    Long history with some loyal, talented vets
    Things will eventually turn around for them if they fix their problems starting with change at the top
    Good place for early career growth or for those looking not to travel assuming you are flexible about the work you do. Opens many doors to other companies.

    Cons

    US C level and corporate management is cutting costs to boost profits presumably to make up for overseas losses and is strangling growth
    Corporate's general lack of investment in their IT infrastructure hinders consultant productivity
    Benefits are slowly being cut
    Salaries are stagnant and they do not grow
    Morale is low as sales are down and turnover is increasing
    Bonus system is convoluted and can be frustrating
    The yearly review, promotion, and wage adjustment process is highly impersonal and not transparent at all
    *You might have to travel to stay billable depending on your salary level
    **401k isn't matched until Dec 21 and requires 3 years to be vested

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing practices and unit structures every year. It generally upsets more people than it pleases and you don't give it enough time to see if these changes really work.
    Make the process for pay and promotions more transparent where at least there's some explanation to the results.
    Invest in your business, your people, and your infrastructure and be patient.
