    I have been working at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Good 401k matching, but it only pays out annually now.

    Cons

    The only growth opportunity is if you sell more projects for them. This requires significant after hours work since you are expected to be billing a minimum of 40 hrs a week. The bonus structure is vague and changes every year. Management has changed every year for the past 6 years. Account Execs do not last long here, as the sales expectations are high and support is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    invest in your employees careers, not just in making them get Sogeti sales certifications to be promoted. Provide the necessary support to allow your account execs make sales.

    Pros

    It's a job until I find my next job

    Cons

    Keep loosing all the good benefits
    Bonus program gets worse every year
    Guidelines for promotions change every year
    Don't have control of your client or role (you'll probably be a tester at some point)
    We lose business when everything needs to be cookie cutter to avoid risk

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits, especially the 401 K plan.

    Cons

    -Communication is from the bottom up instead of top down so the consultant is expected to initiate all communications with their manager.
    -Poor, poor communication from management when there is any.
    -Was transitioned to Sogeti from my former employer who decided to outsource all of their IT thru Sogeti. We were all told that we would be working on that account for at least several years and that turned out to be a big lie. One week into the project and most of us were told that we would be moving on to other projects. The old bait and switch!
    -No reimbursement for certification (pre test prep, etc.) until the test has been passed, even though they are requiring that everyone be certified.
    -Salarys are too low compared to the market.
    -Too much extra time is expected to be spent on things outside of the current project. They see 'your time' as 'their time'!
    -Employee retention is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to tell the truth to your employees instead of lying to their face and then not having the guts to come explain what really happened.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    - 401k is one of the best, only if you stay 3 years with the company

    Cons

    - Too much politics
    - Salary is very low.
    - You only get promotion based on people you know in higher management, not based on your performance.
    - No appreciation for your hardwork.
    - No Compensation for working overtime every week.
    - They promotes $20k bonus every year, but it is impossible to get even $1k.
    - Don't have any mentors, so you are basically on your own.
    - Barely have any projects, hence probability of getting laid off is very high within a month, if you don't have any project.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more professional and get the politics out of the work place. Treat your employees with respect and appreciate their work.
