    "Not a great place for first job out of college"

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

    Pros

    - Pay is decent, benefits are pretty good
    - Large company so lots of projects/clients (if you network well you can get on an interesting one), most people in consulting industry know company name, helpful when considering future employers
    - Usually get to travel (decide whether this is a pro or con for you)

    Cons

    - Terrible culture for young people, only true company-wide "fun" event is the Christmas party (which they conveniently left a ton of people off the invite list for...)
    - Tough to grow personally and professionally, no good culture of mentorship or guidance from the senior members, very much a "do as you are told" culture
    - Not a lot of young people/fun in the company in general, end up working on tons of projects where 80% of the team is older (Indian) men with no interest of doing anything besides work
    - Company is huge (close to 200k employees) and easy to get lost in the hierarchy / structure, hard to get your name out there as a young person, only senior members get any significant benefits from bonuses / accolades for successful project completion
    - You're screwed if you have an issue and need HR support to fix it, team is slow and seemingly inept sometimes. Seem to make up their own guidelines along the way
    - Internal systems are horrible and will make your eyes bleed. For an IT consulting company, you would expect much better. Expense reimbursements are slow and can cause you to dip into your savings to pay off your credit cards while you wait for $

    Advice to Management

    If you are looking to succeed in the long-term future, create a culture for young people. Too much young talent is leaving the company after the first 2 years. Let the bottom line play second fiddle for a bit so you can accrue and keep talent and make them happy.
