    Pros

    Get to work on really big projects that lots of people will use.
    Interesting technology uses
    Lots of room to grow with the company if you are willing to stick with it
    Will send you to conferences

    Cons

    Management focuses on finishes the project more than balancing work load
    Working as a service provider means you will have to travel potentially for months at a time. Not a problem for everyone but definitely a challenge for family focused people
    Hard to get good equipment and keep it maintained
    Compared to the contract market the developers could be paid more. Especially when you're on a team that is 90% contractors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to spend more on your people and let them take breaks from their projects. This will stop burnout

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

    Pros

    - Very good flexibility and work/life balance.
    - Structured Career Paths
    - Excellent projects - well known clients
    - Mature Company - has many efficient processes

    Cons

    - Lack of pay and progression - based upon time in company and performance. Even when progressing, pay is below market rate.
    - Can be stuck on projects not suited to skill set for a long time
    - No real industry alignment in delivery teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Main advice would be to reimburse employees sufficiently to lower attrition.

    Pros

    Relentless focus on personal development (with the support to go with it). Strong team ethos across the company. Generally a happy place to work.

    Cons

    Over-reliance on a few long standing accounts for revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make use of the local talent; it isn't more expensive than overseas secondees when everything is taken into consideration.

    Pros

    Stable company, which could mean job security, if it's not for internal games

    Cons

    This company doesn't value it's employees. Managements is very poor in every sense - lack of HR knowledge, lack of direction, bulling in some instances. Political games on higher level means that employees are treated like replaceable parts, that no one cares, if they get wore off. No interest or follow up on employees well being. Business processes in my workplace were non existent. No documentation, manuals, procedures, SLA. Career opportunities are blocked by senior management, if it's not in line with their agendas. Been working there for 5 years and never had proper review/appraisal (they were all done just to "tick the box" and never followed up on them)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to live by the values and not just talk about them in meetings. Not listening to lower level employees won't provide you with clear picture, high turnover of staff and dissatisfied people are calling for some changes.
    HR is not helpful and very disorganised as well. Changes in there should be crucial.

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

    Pros

    Location, toilets, resignation, friends, cakes

    Cons

    No training budget, Management openly bully staff, Lots of stress related illness from staff, poorly paid, high staff turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not tell constant lies.
    Do not staff important contracts with unskilled Indian resources and apprentices.
    Retain skilled staff with proven track records.
    Do not get a red face every time you are challenged.
    Stop bullying staff members.
    Stop promising apprentices good careers where it is impossible to deliver.
    Stop cronyism in the workplace.
    This is simply the worst company out there to work for bar none.
    I have many many examples of how staff were treated in there.
