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

    Pros

    I spend almost 4.5 years in Capgemini. But did not see any Pros. I stayed for so long due to personal reasons.

    Cons

    Worst company ever worked...
    1) Frequent lay off...After every project or twice a year.
    2) Should be last option for people on work permit visa (H1B), because of frequent lay off...this will impact visa status.
    3) No career growth. Rare training opportunity...Can't change department even though projects are not available.
    4) Force employees to travel every week at client location.
    5) High Stress to complete project in short duration, so company can earn huge profit.
    6) Very less annual bonus.
    7) Resource manager are least bothered to find and allocate project. Finally employees are laid off.
    8) Employees are least important, they ask employees to do whatever client ask to do, even though it's out of scope, and without willingness of employees to do, this really demotivate people.
    9) Employees on bench, are treated as Garbage, and make them work on documentation instead of training them on new skills.
    10) Poor promotion policy.

    Advice to Management

    Train existing employees on new technologies/skills, this will reduce lay off percentage in Capgemini. Just hiring new employees, and lay off old employees is not going to help. Usually after project completion, management appreciate employees...In Capgemini instead of rewards employees are dismissed from service...Capgemini's policy is use and throw employees.

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

    Pros

    Benefits - They have a good benefits package. Life/ Health / 401 K, dental, vision, Etc.

    Cons

    Management - of the lack there of. I spoke to my manager 2 in a year. There is no work life balance unless...maybe, you live in a hub city and actually work in an office.. If you are assigned a project - you will die there unless there is something else available for you to do. If you live in New York, and the Project is in LA.....You will fly EVERY week. If you want a promotion, you may as well start working 80 hours a week, that's the only way it will happen.

    Advice to Management

    People Matter, Results Count - people don't matter. They are removed / replaced with contractors or H1 ALL the time. The only results that count are Cap's bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Being a consulting firm you get to work on different kinds of challenging projects every year.

    Cons

    Project changes as per contract, senior management changes when project gets over, need to prove and start all over again. Less research and development of in-house products.

    Advice to Management

    Should look towards research, innovation and capture the core products domains too along with their services portfolio.

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

    Pros

    The people and culture are great. The onboarding experience for college hires is very important to them. Got to travel to India and received highly valuable training.

    Cons

    Long hours... and the work life balance is not great, but that's true for consulting in general not just Capgemini.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger mentorship program

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you stay long enough you can meet some great people, but the good ones are likely to leave eventually. Most client managers are good to work with, often better than your Cap managers. Some roles offer great work/life balance, some are terrible. Everything is about timing and networking, very little success has to do with hard work.

    Cons

    Year end review process is terrible. Management is often very corrupt, which quickly kills project team morale. Little opportunity to grow in your career if you don't meet the right people at the right times and in the right circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    have a little humility

    Pros

    Interesting assignments occasionally. Big company and lots of options for your career and development. Can stand out amongst your peers if you work hard and for teh right people.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the shuffle if you don't get connected to the right people fast. Easy to get your internal reputation ruined... even if undeserved.

    Advice to Management

    Why do we reorganize every year? Field teams would like to see you occasionally. Nice job growing the company, but what's with the daily calls and relentless pressure?
