    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.

    Current Employee - Manager Consultant in Tampa, FL (US)
    Current Employee - Manager Consultant in Tampa, FL (US)

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy working in Tampa. I would not like to work anywhere else. Management is very approachable. Work-life balance is great. They are very flexible regarding when work is done. The benefits are the best I have seen.

    Cons

    There has not been enough autonomy for unit management to control all aspects of their business. Senior management in the company has to approve too many decisions that should be made locally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    College graduate salaries should be higher. Allow the unit management to run their unit as they see fit and measure them on their effectiveness.
