    Pros

    Sense of community with strong support, diverse opportunities, great benefits, education reimbursement, bonus program, advancement counseling, and more....

    Cons

    Not Sogeti-specific but more on consulting in general: You can get some less-than-ideal work depending on client. That happens anywhere thought.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people
    Tolerance for short periods of bench time
    Best of breed clients (no small operations)
    Overly inflated titles (Manager and Senior Manager mean you're a more expensive version of a Senior Developer)

    Cons

    Cap on salaries. If you exceed that cap, you had better be a miracle worker
    Silly business model. Each account executive nurtures 4-6 clients and no one else. If a midsize company has an opportunity, the account executive has to get VP level approval to talk to them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more entrepreneurial. Soak up every opportunity that arises.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (Less than a year)

    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 have been working at Sogeti full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Consulting company that has local clients and if the client likes you, can result in long term engagements.

    Smart group of coworkers and you can learn a lot, especially when you are working with a group of Sogetians

    401k match is good, even though it is paid only at the end of the year - 9% for 150% match. Cant beat that.

    Cons

    Cell phone plan, or rather, carrier s(TMobile) sucks. I take calls on the go with my global team and cant count how many times calls get dropped. Sogeti doesn't allow you to switch carriers or reimburse you for it. So I have to pay out of pocket to just do my job. Lame.

    Health plan isn't that great. HDP with Aetna.

    Pros

    Growth , Broad industry experience with different clients, talented uplifting co-workers that are willing to help, and good benefits

    Cons

    Being involved with a client makes it tougher to train yourself professionally. Anyone with a sense of purpose will still find time to though.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best 401k program (150% match)
    Used to have no premium insurance but now have to pay. Not that much so it's still considered ok.
    HSA
    Work-life balance
    Most of co-workers are awesome
    Not great but still decent PTO (roll-over PTO to next year)

    Cons

    TONS AND TONS of RED TAPES

    - Only 7 holidays a year (the least number of holidays for any company I've heard)
    - If you are on the bench, you're at a high risk for layoff
    - The Houston office isn't as good as before because of management
    - All of the numbers (revenue, profit, etc) might seem great but they are not real. They just lie to reassure the employees. Last year the numbers were so bad that they couldn't even released it.
    - Mass hiring and firing all the times. Hired a bunch of new people and have no place for them then lay them off after a couple of months.
    -Bonus program is a big joke because it's fully controlled by the head of the unit. Even if you do a great work at your client, but if you don't help with sale nor place bench people then you get $0 bonus even though you're hired as a consultant, not an AE.
    -Super high turnover rate. People accepted offers to join Sogeti because they told them whatever they want to hear. Once they find out that they are all lies and empty promises, most of them quit.
    - They value NEW hires more than current employees. Current employees' jobs are at risk because they try to replace them with new hires.
    - Sogeti says you have X amount of money to use for education per year but you can't just use them on any cert you want. They only pay for what they want, and NOT what you want. Oh, and if you quit within 1 year after they reimbursed you for your education, they will take it out of your paycheck

    Advice to Management

    Quit lying to the employees. Quit making up stories about new projects, more profits or revenues. Quit mass hiring and firing people. Only hire who you need or is qualified. This lower Sogeti's reputation. Make bonus program better, not worse. Allow employees to study any cert they want as long as the cost is within the education reimbursement limit. Treat your CURRENT employees better to retain talents instead of focusing on the cost.
