I have been working at Capgemini (More than 10 years)

Pros

- There is NO Pros in this company. Except it gives you a brand name of consulting.
- However a lot of US clients dont know the name. So.....
- Compensation is pathetic and doesent keep up with the market.

Cons

- Top Management is extremely inept and uncapable
- Extremely political and that starts right at the top of the food chain.
- Company runs without a vision (First TELCO and split and now HTEC) What is this ???
- Mediocrity is rampart
- Buzzwords rather than results oriented
- Favoritism is the only way to get promoted or higher rating
- I was surprised to see that during the round tables, the top performers were automatically pushed down for the lower rating, while the laggards having solid network were pushed to the top.
- Top Talent doesent stay with the company for long time.

Advice to Management

- 99% of the VP's are completely redundant, incapable and free loaders on work done by the junior level staff. Most of them should be let go. Those who are not let go should be given monthly targets and held accountable. There is ZERO vision ANY of the VP provides.
- 80% of the Principals should be let go and replaced. Whoever are left should be whacked to get sales.
- Respect the employees. If it weren't for them, YOU wouldn't have a job !!!

    Pros

    Capgemini is a huge company with hundreds of divisions, groups, teams, etc. If you can find a good manager and a good customer then the experience will be satisfying. I've had the blessing of working in a great situation for many years.
    I'm allowed to work from home 4 days a week. The pay, time off, flexible schedule, and overall benefits are great.

    Cons

    Capgemini is a huge company and there will always be people still hanging around whom should have left years ago.
    If you want to grow in your career you will have to put 99.99% of the effort in. Capgemini's outsourcing division does not mentor employees or seek to grow and promote them.

    Advice to Management

    HR transparency needs to be real, not a smoke and mirrors game. Star employees should be valued, not just given a number on a review once a year.
    Figure out how to work within the various divisions, business units, and geographies. Stop acting like 100 different companies with the same logo.

    Pros

    a multinational company so you get to meet people of a variety of nationalities

    Cons

    Very very mediocre in technology yet dress themselves up as the bees knees. In IT terms they are idiots but will pull down anybody who shows savvy. At the first sign of difficulty in a project they move into full attack mode with anybody even a tiny bit critical.

    Advice to Management

    your guys are very poor losers. Learn some sportsmanship skills. you'll do better in employee engagement.
