Formerly very talented employee friendly company approaching a low point

Manager Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Sogeti full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork life balance
Self-driven career growth
No travel required, yet still consult and gain experience at big clients*
6% 401k match...1.5 to 1 so it's really 9%
Long history with some loyal, talented vets
Things will eventually turn around for them if they fix their problems starting with change at the top
Good place for early career growth or for those looking not to travel assuming you are flexible about the work you do. Opens many doors to other companies.

ConsUS C level and corporate management is cutting costs to boost profits presumably to make up for overseas losses and is strangling growth
Corporate's general lack of investment in their IT infrastructure hinders consultant productivity
Benefits are slowly being cut
Salaries are stagnant and they do not grow
Morale is low as sales are down and turnover is increasing
Bonus system is convoluted and can be frustrating
The yearly review, promotion, and wage adjustment process is highly impersonal and not transparent at all
*You might have to travel to stay billable depending on your salary level
401k isn't matched until Dec 21 and requires 3 years to be vested

Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing practices and unit structures every year. It generally upsets more people than it pleases and you don't give it enough time to see if these changes really work.
Make the process for pay and promotions more transparent where at least there's some explanation to the results.
Invest in your business, your people, and your infrastructure and be patient.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Solid team of people

Consultant (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL (US)

I worked at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

ProsExposure to different client and technologies. Company internal web-based training programs enables you to be more marketable. Benefits package is pretty decent and they do offer a bonus program. I felt I was working with some of the best technical people in the business.

ConsSogeti is a 24/7 operation and usually doesn't offer a professional and personal life balance. You will be required to be at a client site then also build partnerships outside the billable time. This coupled with required skill training makes it difficult to maintain a balanced life.

A nice place to visit but I couldn't stay.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I worked at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

ProsGood salary
Training opportunities (even while billing)
Big company means plenty of room for a rear growth if you're entrepreneurial
Local model (little if any travel)

ConsPerhaps too big. (You feel like a cog in a wheel)
Emphasis on revenue over ethics
Reactive leadership

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate proactively. It's easier to keep an employee happy than it is to try and fix things after the fact.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overall, and good experience with Sogeti

Consultant (Former Employee)
Dayton, OH (US)

I worked at Sogeti full-time for less than a year

ProsYou can get a variety of experience working on different projects for different clients. This includes the size of the team, from just 1 or 2 people to 20 people.

ConsCan feel lost and confused in the system. I was never sure what I was doing, or what I would be doing next. As long as your billing that's what matters.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sogeti is very sink or swim.

IT Consultant (Current Employee)
Raritan, NJ (US)

I have been working at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

ProsYoung consultants can quickly get a wide range of experience by working on a handful of different projects in a short period of time. Getting pushed into projects out of your depth can pay off if you end up doing well.

ConsThere's very little direction, especially for younger/newer employees. Management can be hard to get in touch with, and there are times that I at least felt kind of forgotten about. Younger employees are often pushed onto projects with little guidance for what they're expected to do, which is stressful.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to throw so many inexperienced resources at a project. It's stressful for the consultants and it makes the company look disorganized to the business, which I don't think reflects all that well on Sogeti.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
