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

Pros

Salary and benefits are competitive. Admin support staff is nice and friendly if you take the time to get to know them. Fun environment with a lot of happy hours.

Cons

Your interests and career goals are not taken into consideration when taking on new projects. You are staffed based upon which manager gets their hand in there first. Employees grossly underutilized at the lower levels.

Advice to Management

Value the lower levels and the admin support staff more, and show your appreciation for them better. They will return the appreciation by working harder for you.

    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
