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

    Pros

    Company is doing well. Interesting work and the people are not hyper-aggressive. I like that I am left alone to run my engagements. There is a caring aspect to the company, which I have rarely seen in large companies. But I have seen multiple instances where people with personal stuff are supported. This is part of the culture.

    Cons

    The back office tools (expense reports, purchasing, etc) are really poor. HR systems are just so-so. The company does not grow great managers.

    Pros

    Very easy to reach anyone in the company. Great pay. I enjoyed the job. Lots of access to various clients.

    Cons

    Work life balance would be the number one concern. It's a consultant gig; expect no less or more.

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility to work either from home or at the client site. 4 weeks of Time off.

    Cons

    The budget for Training to enhance your skills is scarce. One has to get trained on their own. Personal Internal team building is a challenge because of the kind of business we are in (Geographical spread).
