    Pros

    Nice co-workers. People who like you are stuck and looking for a job!

    Cons

    - Evil HR team. They treat you like a number

    - Poor training

    - No recognition

    - Very insulting salary. Like £18K for their graduate scheme. How on earth someone could live in London by this salary?

    - Long bench time

    Advice to Management

    Resign now!

    Pros

    - Strong camaraderie among some consultants as we were aware we had all made a horrible mistake joining this organisation.

    Cons

    - Terrible salary
    - Claim not to be a body shop operation but completely are.
    - Incompetent HR
    - High attrition rate. People are keen to leave as soon as they join as they see what a sham it is.
    - Little recognition for going the extra mile.
    - Little scope for progression.

    Advice to Management

    Just rebrand as a recruitment consultancy. Anything else is just being dishonest.

    Pros

    some people were nice
    head office in London city centre
    office easily commutable

    Cons

    the management
    the hr team
    no scope for promotion
    abysmal pay
    no sense of team work
    no work ethics or integrity
    no respect for employees
    hardly any projects to send consultants on so a lot of people on the bench while the company continues to recruit more staff

    Advice to Management

    Recruit staff when there are projects to send them on instead of lining them all up on the bench. Company growth is important but so is company revenue. There's no point employing people for the sake of showing the company is growing while not having any projects to send them on for months at a time.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, shorted hours, then shorted again refused to pay for worked completed and approved. Don't return phone calls, and then promise to follow up and don't. Distrust anyone at Sogeti first and then verify twice is how you treat working for Sogeti.

    Advice to Management

    Really poor management, very unprofessional. Fire current management and get someone in who knows what they are doing.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company

    Cons

    Company has no loyalty to employees. There is no formalized structure and no communication with new employees about how the show is run. I never even did find out who I reported to. They farm you out, use you then throw you away when they don't have an immediate project to put you on. The client will ALWAYS come before the employee....regardless of the situation. And no, the client is NOT always right!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans, not slave machines. Communicate structure to employees so they know who to go to when they need something.

    Pros

    Only plus is the 401k plan and PTO. However, since they pay below industry average, if you are just starting your career, good luck putting anything into the 401K

    Cons

    Below industry average salary
    No career growth opportunities
    Staff Augmentation
    No Management communication
    All the company cares about is billing to clients whether you are actually working or not
    Inconsistent among the units. Each unit is different, so some get great opportunities, clients, and pay, but some get the short end. Bonus program changes every year so no one as any idea what is happening.
    Uses a ton of offshore
    Does not invest in quality work, only cares about profit.

    I really can't think of any!

    Cons

    The management is extremely unprofessional. They don't have any future planning for the employees and they can't foresee the prospect of upcoming projects as well. Very disorganized, the HR department is especially horrible! My experience was with Sogeti Indianapolis location, not sure about other locations though.

    Pros

    401K but if you stick with company for 3 years. Believe me its long time for this kind of company

    Cons

    Not good projects. Plain body shop. Send people to client side even if they are not qualified. Account executives are worse, do nothing about getting new projects. Long hours and client decides work life balance.
