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

    Pros

    Extracurriculars, not as cutt-throat as other firms, profit-sharing, ample sick time

    Cons

    -Incompetent leadership who are incompetent and can't deliver projects properly, people are promoted based on their ability to brown-nose

    Advice to Management

    -Allow some kind of incentive for people who are billable for at least one year straight (extra bonus/pto for consistent billability or high utilization)
    -Improve quality of leadership and staffing (Managers and Senior Managers) all projects thus far have had inept and incompetent leadership who couldn't deliver or provide clear direction or had expertise in subject matters/software
    -Better round-table process as this is extremely political
    -take racism and immature behaviour seriously (have seen coworkers have racist remarks directed at them)
    -More opportunities to work internationally

    Pros

    1. Oppotunities to work with international teams
    2. Flexbile working time

    4. A lot of travel, good for young and single people

    Cons

    1. Not competitive salary for campus rectuiting emplyees
    2. The workload depends on projects or teams. For some projects, the work-life balance is really bad. Some are good.
    3. Company do not care much about the employees
    4. A lot of travel. Bad for married people.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair between the campus recruit employees and the social recruit employees.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good brand
    Open door culture
    People will work with you when you need help in personal matters affecting work

    Cons

    Scattered organization structure. VERY FREQUENT Re-Org's
    You may never understand where you fit in the organization
    Performance management process is VERY INEFFECTIVE and INEFFICIENT
    Very large emphasis on bottom line at the cost of consultant's personal & professional development
    No support for career growth
    All they care about is, 'are you billable'

    Advice to Management

    Please get your act together and stop distributing titles because someone belongs to your personal group.
    Stop Re-Orging and apply focus on making things work
    Value your people, they are your TRUE assets. Invest in developing them.
    You are technology company, it may help to actually invest in developing Technology folks in our company
    Acting like a 'Pure Play' will NOT get you recognized in the Big 5 Consulting
