    Capgemini is a good employer, not one of the best, not one of the worst, but in th e middle. the company offers good opportunities domestic as well as international. people who want to have a career in consulting can join capgemini for a good start.

    Cons

    Capgemini is big on client commitment therefore working hours can be very long, not just during the week but over the weekends and holidays too.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should not hesitate to encourage people to have work life balance. The management should also push back when the deadlines are not realistic. compensation should be as per the market too

    I have been working at Capgemini as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    will undersell any project to snatch the project from its competition. Will staff such project using contractors and keep till cheap FTE are hired to replace quality contractors.

    Cons

    Will hire people on contract to hire - only to fill in a role till a person from their own bench is available.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional - like your competitors are.
