    I worked at Capgemini (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid Training for five weeks in India among other cities. Excellent 401k offerings with low cost mutual and index funds. A mixture of customers across different industries, on some really high visibility projects. Colleagues who's spent years honing their specialist skill sets. You can really get a lot of experience in IT consulting. The firm has also spent a lot of time deepening its expertise in certain industries, in LA they've collaborated with film studios to build really niche royalty management software.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't hesitate to reference the "sink or swim" model when they hire. There's a high amount of churn at the lower and mid levels of the company. But little interest in making meaningful changes to address the causes. The accepted norm is that it is a tough environment, and high turnover is expected and planned for.

    If you are new you really have to hope and pray that you end up with a good team on decent project to get yourself propelled in the right direction.

    Pros

    Ranked in the top 20 consulting companies.

    Cons

    They tend to underpaid employees that perform comparable work. Also, the employee evaluation system is structured in a way that appears unfair. For example, if you get your assignment appraisals with high to above expectation, they company will still rate you as average to pay you the lower bonus and salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and honest with your employees.
