    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Big name clients
    - Good pay for starters

    Cons

    - Training for college hires doesn't represent open needs - university recruitment is totally mismanaged
    - No choice in roles/projects - limited number of projects to choose from and the choice is made for you by the resource managers who couldn't care less about your personal career path/ambitions/interests/ or even talents for that matter
    - No social camaraderie - out of about 500 employees in LA area, only a group of 10-20 actively participates in social events (if and when those ever happen)
    - Lacking talent - people's skills are generally below average across the board. Poor communication skills, managers lacking basic people and project management knowledge
    - Too much politics within projects and on corporate level - transparency is almost discouraged; management "initiatives"/promises never live to full fruition
    - Arcane internal technology/tools - own helpdesk is a disaster! So inefficient and frustrating. Slow computers that keep being recycled after over 5 years of use! Time and expense tool is the most ridiculous waste of time
    - No flexibility - long hours at client site, travelling, nightly offshore calls; sick leaves, work from home and flexible schedule request are not rejected, but highly looked down upon

    Pros

    not the standard it job - you get to wear different hats and you can make your work as challenging or easy as you want it to be. Of course - performance reviews will look at how many challenges you took on in addition to your regular role.salary seems ok compared to other regular IT firms, but may be on the lower end when compared to other consulting companies.

    Cons

    Depends on a few big clients. Need additional training programs and more involved on boarding process. You feel totally lost the first 1 or 2 months if you are new to consulting. work life balance is hard to maintain depending on client.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable and open.
