    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    some people were nice
    head office in London city centre
    office easily commutable

    Cons

    the management
    the hr team
    no scope for promotion
    abysmal pay
    no sense of team work
    no work ethics or integrity
    no respect for employees
    hardly any projects to send consultants on so a lot of people on the bench while the company continues to recruit more staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit staff when there are projects to send them on instead of lining them all up on the bench. Company growth is important but so is company revenue. There's no point employing people for the sake of showing the company is growing while not having any projects to send them on for months at a time.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits & 401k, fair pay, quick promotion track for over achievers, lots of opportunities to take leadership roles, aggressive bonus structure if you contribute back to the company above and beyond your client role.

    Cons

    Market planning and strategy lacks definition.

    A person who is not a self starter may have difficulty succeeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition for consultants who contribute to Sogeti above and beyond their client responsibilities.

    More solution sell/build/support from regional and national teams.

    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH (US)
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    Good for Entry-level professionals like recent graduates, they pay for your time "on the bench", great benefits and 401k employer contribution, nice and welcoming culture of the company, a lot of activities promoting communication and helping others among consultants and other employees, access to every technology you need.

    Cons

    It's difficult to be promoted, you have to participate in the office activities as teaching some technologies you know to other consultants, and promoting sales at the clients. The salaries are good for starters, but after several years nothing changes much.

    despite the propaganda, just another margin-focused outsourcer

    Former Employee - Managing Consultant
    Former Employee - Managing Consultant

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason is the 401k. Health benefits are great if you're single and healthy. Get a good project and it's okay as long as you stay away from the back office politics.

    Cons

    Very few quality people in management. CEO is a joke. Stay away from the sales cycle. Just another volume outsourcer that claims expertise (that's really just the guy who came to the sales call) and then asks the client to pay for the developer tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Own up to your identity-- you're a low-cost outsourcer stuck in the gap between the real volume players and the niche rock stars. You can't be high value and low cost and still squeeze your people for 35% margin.
