Cons
  • The work/life balance is tricky (in 21 reviews)

  • Bonus program is a big joke because it's fully controlled by the head of the unit (in 35 reviews)

    Pros

    A relatively flat organization where you feel like you are your own boss. A salary is above average in Ohio and they truly care about their employees. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to gain a lot of experience and get paid to do it.

    Cons

    There could be somewhat lack of organization while you are on projects but it is expected of such a large company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and make the path to advancement/promotion more clear.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k plan, very little management oversight

    Cons

    My friend just shared with me that while he was working here one of the consultants made several negative remarks about various race groups, sat him down with religious artifacts and explained each one to him (I actually was there for this) he told her this made him uncomfortable but she continued, she told him that she doesn't work for someone of his race (Indian) and when he got upset and told her he was going to tell the practice manager she went and told him and one of the HR person a different story. Apparently the reaction by the Sogeti HR person was to take the story completely one sided as he reached out to my friend and even said that her husband threatened him. Do not work for Sogeti, I am quitting as soon as I can.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your people, when you allow for this kind of racism and behavior people will find out and you will lose clients. I will not be silent about this.

    Pros

    A fun, laid back culture,
    Fantastic benefits, especially the 401k match and education reimbursement,
    The opportunity to work with some amazing client companies, such as General Electric, Proctor & Gamble, and Johnson & Johnson,
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Salaries are below average,
    Promotion and bonus processes are somewhat political

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain employees rather than see them jump ship, you should pay them what they're worth.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent work/life balance. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Be prepared to kiss arse... if you want to raise up in the ranks of the company or get bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the consultants who are billing the entire year. People get forgotten, because they are on on-site at a client for an entire year or more. You would think that would be good enough to receive a bonus, but it's not.

    Pros

    The hours depend upon your client. Sogeti is very flexible. Management does not micromanage. PTO is nice. Benefits are good. However, they may not be as good in the future. It's all perspective. Great 401k match.

    Cons

    If you are on a project that has "lifers" on it you are more likely to be promoted, get raises, recognition, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Look for those women/men on smaller, but HIGH margin projects. Those employees are key to your success.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    401(k) matching is the best I have seen, sadly it ends there.

    Cons

    No work life balance - Expected to be 100% billable and SELL, train yourself, teach other employees, develop internal programs, publish for the company on your time.

    No input on assignments - Was actually told to think of myself as a commodity to be sold not unlike cattle.

    Pay is low and salary increases are random or non-existent. No rhyme or reason how they are awarded. If you get one, you will get a letter in the mail sometime in late January with a flat dollar amount. You need to request an increase to be considered. If not awarded, you can appeal but the request will not be followed up on and you will never hear anything back.

    HR doesn't seem to have a plan. The convoluted bonus structure is changed annually - sometimes mid-year and is heavily focused on sales. Need to develop a plan and stick with it so employees can begin to understand it and know what to aim for. Health care is no longer free but this was unheard of so no surprise that we have to pay premiums but it is a high deductible plan - 6k for family before it even pays for a prescription. Carriers change as frequently as the bonus plan so it is difficult to maintain provider relationships and stay in the network.

    Management is invisible and has significant trust issues in the company

    Advice to Management

    There are many opportunity for management to make things better if they want. Unfortunately, during my tenure I haven't seen this happen yet. You need to start valuing the people you have working for you still - after all we are not cattle. T/O is high and will continue if changes are not made.

    Pros

    Relaxed and reliable. Great people that you can rely on. They give you work that will make you think! Fun!

    Cons

    Lack of advancement. Makes it hard to move up. Lack of work at some moments but still an enjoyable place to work.

    Pros

    The company implements a lot of positive employee relations elements. The 150% 401k match is awesome. The paid healthcare premiums are also great. Any education you would want is available for reimbursement. The payback period on the education reimbursement is only one year, which is better than most companies I've seen.

    Cons

    Layoffs defeinitely happen, but that is somewhat expected in the consulting business. Would also like to see some more work from home opportunities, but that may be a client issue rather than a company issue.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Sogeti is fantastic with care and concern for its clients and employees. There is a lot of attention paid to the needs of both and a lot of support is provided for training, career pathing, and leveraging client's needs.

    Cons

    The Onboarding process; It is challenging to know what the Consultant joining a client's site will need to know prior to being on the ground. As much information is provided where possible, but learning the client's processes and procedures and systems out of the gate is beneficial. This is important with any Consultant/Client relationship.
