    Corporate Culture and Globalisation

    Current Employee - Architect
    Current Employee - Architect

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    flexible benefits are useful and are updated annually

    Cons

    Too much change due to re-organisation, globalisation and industrialisation makes keeping up to date on how the company operates very difficult. Combined with department name changes and amalgamation it can feel like a full time job know what's happening especially if you are not based in a mainstream office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In a world of change try to provide an element of stability so that staff can focus on the important aspect - the clients.
