    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A strong, career focused culture, with a healthy dose of realism. Management generally 'walks the talk'

    Cons

    often overly bureaucratic
    politics at a senior level can be challenging to navigate (especially if you get on the wrong side of a VP wrangling for Executive VP)
    sometimes onerous challenged navigating the matrix of horizontal vs vertical (and woe betide those who get it wrong, see previous point)

    Advice to Management

    get a better handle on vertical versus horizontal service/delivery - horizontal service lines shouldn't always have to be the supplicant; vertical may 'own the relationship' with the client, but they should do so as a steward, not as a pompous gatekeeper.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many I can think of. The experience seems very dependent on location and service line. The three week on-boarding experience was nice though.

    Cons

    - Felt like I was a number, not a person
    - Mid level management was highly unprofessional
    - Don't expect them to keep their word to you, it will always be about their benefit first

    Pros

    Extracurriculars, not as cutt-throat as other firms, profit-sharing, ample sick time

    Cons

    -Incompetent leadership who are incompetent and can't deliver projects properly, people are promoted based on their ability to brown-nose

    Advice to Management

    -Allow some kind of incentive for people who are billable for at least one year straight (extra bonus/pto for consistent billability or high utilization)
    -Improve quality of leadership and staffing (Managers and Senior Managers) all projects thus far have had inept and incompetent leadership who couldn't deliver or provide clear direction or had expertise in subject matters/software
    -Better round-table process as this is extremely political
    -take racism and immature behaviour seriously (have seen coworkers have racist remarks directed at them)
    -More opportunities to work internationally

    Pros

    Benefits - They have a good benefits package. Life/ Health / 401 K, dental, vision, Etc.

    Cons

    Management - of the lack there of. I spoke to my manager 2 in a year. There is no work life balance unless...maybe, you live in a hub city and actually work in an office.. If you are assigned a project - you will die there unless there is something else available for you to do. If you live in New York, and the Project is in LA.....You will fly EVERY week. If you want a promotion, you may as well start working 80 hours a week, that's the only way it will happen.

    Advice to Management

    People Matter, Results Count - people don't matter. They are removed / replaced with contractors or H1 ALL the time. The only results that count are Cap's bottom line.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you stay long enough you can meet some great people, but the good ones are likely to leave eventually. Most client managers are good to work with, often better than your Cap managers. Some roles offer great work/life balance, some are terrible. Everything is about timing and networking, very little success has to do with hard work.

    Cons

    Year end review process is terrible. Management is often very corrupt, which quickly kills project team morale. Little opportunity to grow in your career if you don't meet the right people at the right times and in the right circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    have a little humility
