Pros

CAPGEMINI is a great example of “a caring and cozy place" to work while it has “the presence and the drive” of a major global player!
This is a wonderful combination of balance and accumulated business wisdom!

Company has huge numbers of hires from College campuses every year (such as Cornell, Georgia Tech, NYU, Harvard etc) and supports organic growth.

Plus it maintains over 30 BUSINESS UNITS and that allows employees to seek inter-company transfers.

Also, Capgemini has global presence and offices. This fact encourages Capgemini employees to “move and work” internationally while they experience firsthand the benefits of diversity and culture.

Capgemini management is very approachable and they all strive to strike a balance between “work and family” for all employees.

Cons

I believe that some of the acquisitions have not adopted the mild and collaborative spirit of Capgemini. Capgemini acquires a company or two every year worldwide. However, some of them are hard to assimilate due to their own way of doing business before.
"Small company" mentality,
"Start-up "mentality,
"Body shop" mentality,
has proven to be challenging “to work with” the openness, team-player and supportive mentality that our Company has demonstrated for year as E&Y and then as Capgemini in North America.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the dynamics between the new people coming from the new companies we buy and how they integrate with the "legacy" Capgemini way of working!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The environment is unusually casual and fun. Some of my greatest friends have been people I've worked with at Capgemini. The people are certainly a draw.

    Cons

    It is becoming increasingly more difficult to work in a business unit or industry that you would like to work in. Capgemini is infamous for pigeon-holing you without you even knowing it. Sometimes it feel like upper management has plans for its employees that they don't communicate to the masses. Capgemini unfortunately lacks in transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate. And also listen. Its easy to be a bureacracy. Its much more difficult to be transparent and open to change (from the bottom up)


  2. "Great People, Compensation; VP Support is Key"

    Pros

    The people are outstanding and the work is ever changing, challenging and interesting. The overall compensation is also very good to excellent. My Vice President is second to none in terms of abilities.

    Cons

    Not much other than the hours can be long and travel can sometimes be hectic. Also, it's imperative that you have a Vice President that understand the business and is competent. Without it, you're in big trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Sell more and more projects that are customer facing, IT can be very dry and the people at Cap have a diverse array of talents and want sexier projects.
