    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of my peers were as committed as me to deliver quality results. We did as much as we could with little to no support from HQ.

    Cons

    An extreme shortage of qualified resources and very little to none strategic vision to properly scope and sell projects. The team was then told to make it successful, and we were threatened with discharge if we couldn't use the unqualified resources to complete our deliverables on time.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management is part of the problem.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial approach in the management of the company.

    Cons

    Expected to do a lot with no support and no budget. Culture is a shark tank. People are pitted against each other.

    Advice to Management

    All senior leadership should be fired. There is no direction, no vision and no strategy. It might be better if they just sold off the company in pieces and closed the doors.

    Pros

    One among the big 5

    Cons

    All the skilled Management folks have left the company. Currently the senior management is filled with just old people who have no management skills at all. Just because they have experience doesnt mean they have the skills to manage people. i worked with them for 8 years and i have seen better days with them. i felt bad when i resigned but it the worst place NOW to work

    Advice to Management

    Stop recruiting people we have too many on the bench. Also advance people inside the organization do not hire senior management from outside who have no idea about the culture. this hurts the good people inside and thats the reason all the good skills have left
