    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    Great place to start a career - they will teach you the nuts and bolts of consulting and you will work with some very talented people. It's easy to find mentors here and move up in your career quickly if you are smart and motivated. Many good projects, a few terrible ones. Opportunities to do job rotations, move internal, etc.

    Cons

    Salary and hiring structure make no sense to me. Each service line sets their own pay structure so compensation is not even close to uniform across the company. People who consistently get low performance ratings are not dealt with, and other high performing employees get laid off for being on the bench for a week or two.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make things fairer for your employees. Highly rated and performing employees should see some benefits as a result (and not just in lip service). Otherwise, they leave for jobs that will pay the market rate.

    Good benefits, office environment, and happy hours. Company is growing fast.

    Very political. Low salary adjustments during promotions. Can't hold on to talent.

    Advice to Management

    There's too much talk about how well the company is doing, but only selective people actually benefits from it.
