    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.

    Pros

    Studie mogelijkheden zijn prima. Je kan goed groeien in je kennis en ervaring mits je op projecten gezet kan worden.

    Cons

    Start salaris is laag en lease kosten liggen hoog. Zolang je ingezet kan worden hou je netto al weinig over maar als je niet ingezet kan worden heb je een probleem. Hiernaast eisen ze nog dat je richting de randstad gaat wonen waar het leven nog duurder is.

    Advice to Management

    Beter start salaris aanbieden

    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    - A lot of events are organized that you can join
    - A business course to Ohio Athens for 3 weeks

    Cons

    - Salary is lower than other companies
    - Not much training for developers if you're not interested in web development
    - You don't get a mobility budget if you don't get a car as a Young professional (which you do get if you're a professsional)
    - Most assignments are in the Randstad which means if you live further away it'll take longer to find an assignment
    - You often have to find your own assignment

    Advice to Management

    Take more care of your employees

    Pros

    Le salaire est bien. En cas d'intercontrat on reste chez soi. Processus d'embauche pas trop lourd. Beaucoup de clients.

    Cons

    On est un numéro. On doit faire ce qu'on nous dit et se taire. Notre objectif de carrière ne compte pas. Pas de possibilités d'évolution. On ne choisit pas sa mission et on entend beaucoup de promesses en l'air. Bref à éviter.

    Advice to Management

    Il faut contrôler les commerciaux sur leur façon de gérer les prestataires. Vu leur façon de faire, on devine que ce n'est pas important pour l'entreprise. Il doit donc y avoir un gros turnover et un grand nombre de démissions. Ce qui n'est forcément avantageux pour l'entreprise.
