    Pros

    Professional growth program is generous, 10K tuition reimbursement
    Counselor program works well for me
    They don't throw their consultants "under the bus" when a client or project goes south
    Fun and smart people, diversity embraced.
    Overall, high integrity and professional methods

    Cons

    They don't pay to keep their talent
    Evaluation program needs refinement; some clients give perfect scores for nothing, some never would even if you moved mountains for them. it's the luck of the draw and it costs consultants.
    Sales are emphasized, yet nurturing relationships that make sales stick is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your money where your mouth is; follow through on investments to improve consulting infrastructure rather than attempting to do it on the cheap and tapping into the good will of your decicated employees. Do an honest ROI and go for it, or not.

    Bottom line driven company that believes that the consultants can easily be replaced with offshore people.

    Pros

    If you like staff augmentation then this company is for you. They have been in business for a long time so they have built up relationships with companies so being staffed may come easier. Benefits are decent, but nothing that an extra $10 per hour can't buy. They only do work that is local to their location, but this can also be a double edged sword where if the local area is experiencing job loss then this is a very bad thing for you. If you want to further your career by becoming a sales man then this job is ideal because that is where all roads lead in order to advance.

    Cons

    If you like being a consultant vs just a warm body filling some seat then this staff augmentation based company is not for you. This company does not like to invest in their people or the infrastructure. Ultimately this is a French owned company so a huge portion of the profits are piped back to Capgemini. You had better remain billable with one of their clients (Even if it is work that you don't like), or there is a high likely hood that they will let you go. Just ask the dozens of consultants who stayed billable for years and then were let go on their first day back to the bench. This company is known for taking away pay and benefits from the employees in order to accommodate a certain profitability margin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The consultants that are under your employ are not liabilities and thus should be treated like assets where you invest in those assets and thus making your company stronger. Making retro-active benefit changes mid-year is clearly not ethical so stand by your benefit decisions all year long as this will earn respect from the employees. Focus more on becoming more transparent with the work rather than keeping everyone at bay in their own silo.
