    Global company with reasonable reputation. Some great clients.

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    - work life balance can be difficult (depending on project manager)

    - 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.
