    Pros

    Global opportunites are widespread in several divisions

    Cons

    It is challenging to take one day off

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more support in dealing with customer's demands for the work that is performed under base contract, when indeed a change order should be made, which would also help increase revenue.

    Pros

    Cap is one of the Best Consulting Companies to work with. Its employee culture is really good. There is potential growth for freshers. There is transparency to the higher management. Besides,Cap encourages transitioning from one background to another, one country to another. Training programs are good too. I love Cap!

    Cons

    Hmm...well..i am comparetively new to the company.I think,the only downside is ,Cap doesn't market its brand as aggressively as the rest of the companies like Accenture ,Deloitte or IBM do.

    Advice to Management

    Please market our brand more aggressively,so that we feel proud to Show off our CAP ID's in public places!

    Pros

    Th experience is second to none. In just under two years I have built a resume that is very impressive. In addition, as I have started looking for a new position elsewhere, I actually get calls back from very large and respected companies. Do it for the experience if for nothing else. And if you love to travel, then this is also the best way to go.

    Cons

    If you have a family, like I do, the travel is a bit much. Travel is 100% for the most part, but in my experience, if you prove your value then there is room to maneuver in terms of flexibility in terms of a travel schedule that works for you. However, if you are in Chicago and the client is in New Jersey well then you are out of luck. Just no way around it if you want to stay on the project.

    Advice to Management

    Get over the titles. So you are a Sr. Manager, big freakin' deal! By letting titles get in the way you stop yourself from exchanging and interacting with those who actually have some great ideas are are talented. The only difference that separates you from me is the fact that you sold alot of work. Get over yourself.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with really nice people. Had great success in the insurance vertical. great list of fortune 500 clients. Really liked office and ability to have freedom to act.

    Cons

    Travel requirements can be hard. 4 to 5 days in a 7 day week out of town is very difficult. being on site at client can be hard. I did not like the restriction on blackberries for people under senior manager. The blackberry tool seems to be helpful for everyone else, why not enable your consultants and managers to be reachable while on the go. Everyone seems to be on the go anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Enable some sort of employee stock compensation plan or stock purchase plan to positively impact morale and retention.

    "Consulting firm with quality teams and projects"

    Pros

    Capgemini projects provide career growth and challenge for their Consultants. All Consultant travel contained to the business unit you are hired into which helps maintain the work/life balance we all strive for. Good project teams allow Consultants to learn from one another and feed off each other's energy and knowledge. Capgemini is a large global organization that still has the feel of a smaller consulting firm, which is refreshing to most Consultants. You still have direct access and contact with Vice President level management to express any concerns or interests.

    Cons

    Could do a better job of recognizing employees with raises and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    The company has stayed in the upside during difficult times but you have to recognize the employees responsible for the companies success.
