    I have been working at Capgemini (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are nice. That is the only pro.

    Cons

    The benefits are bad. They have less days than the standard holiday schedule. They only have 10 vacation days...forever. You can never earn more. You cannot get the supplies you need to do your job. They do not give you monitors for your laptop. They will not provide you with a mouse. They micro manage everything you do and treat you like children. EAs are not allowed to work from home....ever. They have NO perks! They do nothing extra or special for their employees. They even made the employees chip in money to buy a toaster for the office!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like adults. Stop being so ridiculously cheap and add some perks to your benefits.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A company is as good as the leadership.I spent almost five years there .a good place to have a "stable NO growth place"

    Cons

    The management is very inconsiderate of the employees.they have no regard for the hard work they put in.There is a lot of nepotism and favourism running in the company with people sitting as mangers at the on-site with bloated egos and zero professionalism .

    Advice to Management

    Work on the people who are at decision making positions and be honest to your employees. Don't treat them like client billing resources and appreciate the effort they put in or else you would b losing​more on good people in the company.

    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.

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

    Pros

    *Employer name looks good on resume.
    *Friendly people, most of who are hardworking.

    Cons

    *A real lack of leadership and visibility.
    *No appropriate mentor or opportunity to come together as a whole with the team to learn and share. Despite having people managers, everyone is out to better their situation and will often forget to support the team.
    *There is no sense of direction or guidance on what is success or drives it.
    *Limited opportunities for growth and engagement, very much one-dimensional and morale is low for many.
    *Low salaries and a real disparity among existing and new employees: poor employee-to-role matching.
    *Minimal communication and explanation, an overwhelming sense of alienation and secrecy due to who management deems are the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots.’ They tout that while they may not have fair wages, you will learn and grow. This is not true, only a select few get attention. Nepotism is rampant.
    *Face time is oddly important, for some.
    *Many are disadvantaged early in career.

    Advice to Management

    Since you don't listen - turnover, you have all been with the company TOO long. We are tired of your stale, antiquated sense of direction and practices.

    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.

    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.
