    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Underlying values. People are very collaborative. It has a good reputation for doing the right thing by clients.

    Cons

    It is very siloed, business units are measured in a way that does not encourage collaboration across BUs, so opportunities can be sub-optimised.

    Advice to Management

    Change measures to instil better collaboration across BU....and consolidate the the GTM and Support Functions across BUs to get better alignment with how clients buy (GTM) and reduce overhead costs (support functions).

    Pros

    Hires a lot of people.
    Provides mandatory training, including professional one
    Tries to runperioding informal events

    Cons

    Graguates are used as operational clerk, which does not help to learn any engineering profession
    Professionals are treated as avarage work-bodies regardles their professional skills, preferences, offered values and best potential contributions
    Managers decide everything regardless promoted "Agile culture"
    Architectural ideas are ignored if they in any angel to the managerial decisions
    Agile operational process is much more important than its business/technology outcome
    The single delivery criteria is to keep a manager happy, what is actually delivered is immaterial.
    Poor internal organisational and technology support
    A lot of operational disconnected systems/tools

    Advice to Management

    Sell expertise, not bodies. Respond to requirements, not to individual wishes to promote existing solutions.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined as a graduate and have enjoyed the time I have spent at Capgemini

    Capgemini provide graduates with excellent training opportunities. I have experienced this first hand and have attended a 5 week academy in addition to other courses that have allowed me to develop a deep understanding in my area. Due to this investment, Capgemini expect you to become certified in your chosen area.

    From my experience employees support and collaborate with their colleagues allowing for a fun and productive environment. I believe there to be a good work life balance, but am aware this can vary depending on your project.

    Management are supportive of progression and are often approachable. Promotion can be achieved on a yearly basis.

    I feel I am entering the next stage of my career; in my current position I am uncertain whether there will be enough opportunities for me to meet my aspirations and whether Capgemini will continue to invest in training (after finishing the graduate scheme). However, it would be unfair for me to comment negatively on this as I am yet to experience it.

    I would recommend the graduate scheme to people wanting a career in IT.

    Cons

    Unable to think of any Cons- I have enjoyed my experience as a graduate

    I worked at Capgemini as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects and programmes across multiple sectors and geographies - good sense of community and energy which allows people to develop solutions and have them taken forward

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy, can be tough to get training approved that is not provided from within the company to save money

    Advice to Management

    Do not try to transform yourselves into Accenture - your value is in having strong people across the full spectrum, don't resort to padding teams with graduates in order to improve margin
