    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits in the US, considerable leeway to create your own solutions to challenges, both internal and with clients. Can be some global travel (if that is a plus for you) and certainly dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Promotions from within are scarce and practically never come with appropriate salary adjustments. You are basically capped out at max 5% increase for a promotion and can be well below market value for the position. You need to be hired from the outside of the firm to get market value. The company always seemed to be in a cost-cutting mode in order to make financial targets, which can be a bit demoralizing year after year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people a market-rate salary when they take on a new role within the company and they take on more responsibility. Don't try to sell it as a lateral move or claim that the corporate max increase is 5%.

    Pros

    Good work culture, though it depends on which account you work with. Overall, great people who wants to make difference.

    Cons

    Internal processes could be pain. Ready to have patience... It would sort out but will take time and could be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Make internal processes easy and specially people who owns shares services accountable. Most of the time we see people with I don't care attitude in internal services.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A strong, career focused culture, with a healthy dose of realism. Management generally 'walks the talk'

    Cons

    often overly bureaucratic
    politics at a senior level can be challenging to navigate (especially if you get on the wrong side of a VP wrangling for Executive VP)
    sometimes onerous challenged navigating the matrix of horizontal vs vertical (and woe betide those who get it wrong, see previous point)

    Advice to Management

    get a better handle on vertical versus horizontal service/delivery - horizontal service lines shouldn't always have to be the supplicant; vertical may 'own the relationship' with the client, but they should do so as a steward, not as a pompous gatekeeper.
