    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

    Good, fast paced learning environment

    Cons

    Dishonest recruiting and management. They brought some of us on board as Managers and others as Senior Consultants, but we all had the same range of experience. Make your best deal going it as they will try and nickel and dime you. Get the bonus rate in writing as well as the vacation policy. Training is hard to come by and the travel policy is tied to the engagement. I sell services I know little about because the company won't invest in orientation.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. That's what you deserve.

    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.

    I worked at Capgemini (More than a year)

    Pros

    They paint the company as being a very flexible work environment where, if you are driven, you will succeed.

    Cons

    In reality, you are in charge of finding your own projects... This is almost impossible unless you are in the main hubs, such as Chicago or Atlanta. The resource managers are literally useless.

    Advice to Management

    Most good people keep leaving the company, which is a clear sign something is seriously wrong...

    Pros

    Strong global presence in IT...stronger in applications than in infrastructure. Improving on weak infrastructure offerings and support...investing long overdue.

    Cons

    A French company with a very strange org structure...everything is headed by a "board"; hard to find the person in charge of any specific function. A bigger problem is that some senior account executives promoted to senior management have continued with a very controlling management style and causing significant internal problems.

    Weak infrastructure offering (Americas) due to lack of investment and poor pricing of contracts they have won. Recent investments may slow the bleeding.

    Advice to Management

    Review pricing of proposals and ability to perform before negotiating with client.

    Evaluate personnel that are put in key client-facing positions to insure that there are not personality issues or internal leadership deficiencies. Many accounts are hemorrhaging due to lack of client-account management-delivery staff continuity.
