    Pros

    Big offers to make you dream of career growth, Educational assistance upto 12 grand a year, 150% 401K Contribution etc..

    But dreams will remain as dream.. They will terminate you before your 401K vesting start (within 3 years)
    They will never approve your educational expense request..
    You will be terminated as soon as your billing ends..

    A big Sham and a big shame for Cap Gemini for carrying this brand

    Cons

    They will not promote any career growth, educational assistance and terminate you before your 401K company contribution gets vested

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take out all the attractive benefits and accept that you are like a contracting company who wil terminate employees as they complete their billing engagement

    I worked at Sogeti

    Pros

    Sogeti has a nice brand name with a high profile parent company; CapGemini. It has a great benefits package including a terrific 401k option...if you can wait 3 years for it to vest. There are lots of talented people employed by Sogeti who are passionate about what they do and can deliver high quality work.

    Cons

    There is little to no communication from leadership to it's consultants. The moral is low and not much is being done to change that. There is a high turnover rate and the projects are tactical in nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regroup and realize your consultants are a valued asset and not a warm body to staff. Have an open and transparent communication process.

    Pros

    Few decent colleagues that you can work with
    Some clients are nice and understanding.

    Cons

    Low pay and minimum raises.
    Having managers who have no technical skills and do not know what you do.
    Backstabbing for any sort of bonus.
    No opportunity for advancement.
    No support from management and no opportunity for training.
    You are left to your own, sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselfs.
    Fire your yes man.

    Pros

    None... you are wasting your time.

    Cons

    No Human Resources. And thats just a start..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A total overhaul of the company structure on how it operates. There is absolutely no accountability leadership in this company. Complete misconception of leadership. This company operates like a Mafia.

    Its NO DIFFERENT from a third grade consulting body shop, picking up folks from third party body shops for pennies and fresh grads, under compensating and exploiting them on Visa and immigration aspects. Complete lack of ethics, quality.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE.. JUST NOT WORTH IT. You will be just jeopardizing your career.

    Pros

    Gets you corporate experience but other than that I would recommend finding a better place after a year or 2

    Cons

    Low pay. A lot of politics go on. CEO decreases benefits. Nearly impossible to get a bonus. Have no sense of direction

    Pros

    401k is matched at 150% up to the first 6%.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay structure. Factory mentality. Disgusting PTO plan. It's a billing machine not an employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your supposed to be a boutique consulting firm, not a factory.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    In my time with Sogeti I had some great engagements that helped me grow both professionally and personally. However, that was mostly at the hands of my clients.

    Cons

    Over the last year, the sales funnel has dried up. Those suffering the most are the consultants. Experience ranks lower than low cost resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New leadership is needed in the Dayton unit. Most consultants are just waiting for their day to be called in to be laid off. Business leaders in the Dayton market view Sogeti as nothing more than a resource shop and are more often passing on Sogeti due to the "Right to Hire" clause written into the Master Services Agreement with their clients.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    People work hard here, and are overall quite nice. There are some good offerings in some markets and a great corporate parent company. Decent place for college grads or people early in their career.

    Cons

    There is a "one size fits all" corporate way of doing things for all locations regardless of how different each geography and it's clients are. Sogeti is notoriously cheap, focused solely on margin and bill rate but not the consultant. Management rules with an iron fist and seems to be related to one another (i.e. CEO and COO are brother-in-laws), for a firm of around 2,500 people I find that strange. The culture is outdated and people are generally frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully understanding this is a business and everyone has to make a profit, don't forget about your employees. One week of 'employee appreciation' doesn't cut it. With so much competition for top talent, the days of ruling with an iron fist are over. Adapt to the modern workforce. Be more honest and transparent with your consultants.

    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.

    Pros

    Only you get salary on time.
    Work life is good as many project on support so no much work...

    Cons

    many ..... few of them are given below
    1 Worst management
    2 all the projects are on support ... so no more to gain the knowledge.
    3 no onsite travel.
    4 extremely worst for the people for those who does not work on .Net
    5 Maximum head count for a project is 20 to 25 ... hence no vertical growth.
