    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.

    Technology based consulting with a team based approach for solving client problems.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tallahassee, FL (US)

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Consulting with a focus on local clients and long term relationships. I enjoy the team approach and collaboration among my colleagues in the local office and across the globe. The push for innovation within as well as what we offer our clients in services always keeps me satisfied with my career progress.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits seem to on the decline although this seems to be an industry trend.

    Current Employee - Manager Consultant in Des Moines, IA (US)

    I have been working at Sogeti (less than an year)

    Pros

    Diversity of opportunity. Many large clients to deliver solutions for, diverse set of solutions and practices, you truly have an opportunity to grow and prosper. I'm a little frustrated reading the negative reviews, Sogeti is really a place that will reward you for the effort you put forth. Consulting is tough by nature. If you are lazy, you probably won't do well. Sogeti leadership I've worked with have a ton of integrity.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a brand identity issue as the business evolves from staff augmentation to all solution oriented. Some solutions are not fully baked, but most are. Don't complain about it, dig in and help develop them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about marketplace brand. Think broadly about the sales process and who the customer is (it's not always the CIO).
