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

    Pros

    Training is very good and have a talented staff. Practice Managers are engaging and encouraging.

    Cons

    Senior Management is horrible. There is zero communication between them and down to the employees. Office Management doesn't communicate with Practice Managers. The office will lay off resources due to lack of business (which seems to be an issue among the company). Then will not inform their Practice Managers. Meanwhile, resources that no longer exist with the compnay are being assigned work by Practice Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Practice Managers need to be informed as they are engaged more with clients and potential clients.

    Pros

    Name recognition & some good delivery people

    Cons

    Downtown location (bad traffic)/ Pressure to place bench consultants even when they're not necessarily a good fit for the project

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely so heavily on full-time salaried consultants - add in W2 hourly and 1099 hourly consultants so there isn't such a bench liability when consultants are between projects.

    Pros

    Sogeti is a great company with plenty of opportunity. Consulting is not for everyone but for recent grads or folks early in their career the experience is a must. There are some good perks and everyone is very professional.

    Cons

    Leadership can be very confusing. The good part of this is you can be your own leader and drive your career. The cons however is that it can be very difficult to be heard and drive change if you aren't in an actual leadership position. Account executives often don't have enough knowledge around consultants skillsets and can oftentimes limit the opportunities on an individual basis. Bench is an issue at times and sudden decisions can be made without warning and communication can be very difficult and oftentimes fruitless.

    Advice to Management

    Build up your senior resources and invest in and encourage consultants who express interest in leadership.

    I worked at Sogeti (More than a year)

    Pros

    No pros here to speak of. Is literally the worst company to work for and has no pros for it. They do a good job of being dishonest.

    Cons

    Bonus is a lie no one gets 20K
    No continuous work
    Work with others that have no experience and act like they do but you find out quickly they don't
    Places the worst people on the projects. Not too sure the selection criteria as it isn't the best person for the role that is used with any experience they prefer to send the people with 0 practical experience to bill at high rates only to loose the contracts at various companies.
    Don't sign any agreement or join this company you will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Get some management that can actually manage and do the right thing.
    Don't allow dishonest, unethical very much wrong behavior from other employees and think that it is ok just cause you FORCE an employee to sign an agreement that says Sogeti is not liable anymore for any dishonest, illegal activities.

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

    Pros

    Working with newer technologies

    Cons

    Not as good as it seems. 401k you don't vest until 3 years (not many people last that long), raises are minimum, lack of support and communication from managers. Low salary because of their benefits (which aren't as good as made out to be). Bonus constantly changes and most people do not receive a bonus that makes up for low salary if they get one at all

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and honest with your consultants.

    Pros

    Great people, talks the talk on work-life balance, transparency, etc.

    Cons

    Transparency not evident in day to day dealings. I was brought into a job that was not what I was told it was. Not surprisingly, the client decided they needed someone with a different skillset. Then Sogeti wasn't able to find me another placement, and kept me in the dark until the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that employees are not children - we can handle the truth. If you can't find me a placement, don't keep BSing me and saying you will before letting me go with no notice due to lack of available assignment.
