    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No micro-managing or difficult policies, there is opportunity to grow and learn in training as well as on the job. Capgemini will trust younger employees with responsibility while having senior resources supervise and monitor both their work effort, ability, and client satisfaction ensuring a solid overall engagement on projects while growing resources. Also when you push yourself and make it clear that you are working above and beyond, you will be recognized for your efforts. There were also a great number of solid, hard working and knowledgeable senior employees always available and willing to give leadership

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get time with certain senior resources, although recent change in management structure and methodology has been seen and is being noticed by other departments which should help to feed this environment out into other areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Construct a clearer framework outlining career progression and what's required in order to move in that direction. Provide more internal social activities as the client site work model removes the internal colleague atmosphere.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good benefits and salary
    - you can buy holidays
    - if you are lucky, good projects
    - the people you work with is excellent
    - from time to time, you work from home

    Cons

    - work life balance can be difficult (depending on project manager)
    - sometimes you travel a lot, more than 25 hours per week.
    - sometimes training does not exist
    - they encourage public transport even when travelling for 6 hours they want you to go by bus instead of taxi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help employees to
    - have a better work life balance
    - allow to travel by taxi at least when you do long journeys
    - get the training when they need it and make sure they receive training, at least 1 each 2 years.

    Good company to work for but not in a support function

    Former Employee - Marketing Executive in London, England

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very smart, very bright people (consultants generally are) although at times cocky/arrogant. Back in the days, it was in a fantastic location: Soho! They've moved to various sites across London now (Holborn among others).

    Cons

    Not great if you're in a support function ie Marketing. No career progression. But maybe that was the management of the time, or maybe I just didn't fit, not sure. Had a lovely time with the other colleagues in my team. But I think the consultants often looked down on us, or that's how it felt like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better career progression for Marketing folks (but there generally is little for Marketing in that respect, it's all about changing companies to move up the ladder).

    There is a chance to work on some really interesting technology projects. For anyone interested in the latest technology this would be really beneficial.

    Pros

    Easy going culture, thats about it.

    Cons

    Expected to work and deliver result beyond grade requirements. Career growth and salary increases very limited.
    Leave and then return at significantly better terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more money and keep them or risk losing the best staff.

    Pros

    Good name in the industry. Clever people to work with. Has great potential to be a fantastic place to build a long and satisfying career.

    Cons

    Incredibly disjointed organisation in the part of the company I am in. Does not work well cross-geography within its own group nor intra-company. Disparate benefits and opportunities compared to other parts of the company. It's such a disappointment to meet people from other groups who are happy as basic differences between structure and management really stand out.

    Pros

    Collegues, client portfolio,some feeble training,interesting projects, work from home cant say anymore it paid my bills etc etc etc

    Cons

    Review system crap
    Low pay
    Only good for interns grads starting out or experienced individuals not if you want to specialise
    Bullying managers
    Incompetant HR
    Treats its only assett- staff like crap
    Stuck into roles you dont want if your not experienced or were benched for too long
    Bullied into accepting testing or pmo roles if you were on bench too long
    Resisting another unrelated career role will impact pay and promotion
    Prepare to become Jack of all trades master of none
    If your not holborn based your invisible to everyone - this will affect bench and promotion
    If you can brown nose play politics and spend late nights socialising it will be fine
    If your head down in your work but not doing above networking no pay rise or promotion
    Spend late nights sometimes 9pm or more
    Expected to stay behinde if other p.m or collegues do the same.
    Not allowed to ever say anything negative ever
    Dont make lasting friends if your on projects for 6 months people get pulled on and off
    No one cares if you join or leave
    Competitive nature of people will see them stomp all over you to get to the top...trust resides with a mere 3 or 4 people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognising individuals hard work and not just those that make lots of noise and do nothing
    Investing in grads to watch them leave- actually help and support their careers instead of plugging them on any old role free for you to make money
    Review system is crap its based on who you favour and like and woeked the 90 percent yr over someone whose delievered very well but maybe not for the enteriety due to role being pulled.
    Stop the bullying the forcing roles, the suppressive unfriendly lying environment you have
