    Pros

    Good brand on your CV as it is part of Capgemini Group. It's not very know in the UK thought

    Cons

    - Crap salary (i.e. £20K for their graduates)
    - Limited career progression
    - Long time on bench. You could spend something like 4 months on bench and learn absolutely nothing
    - No communication between management level and the staff who deliver the actual work
    - No area to improve your skills. (i.e if you are a manual tester you never can learn automation. Mainly because the client will not let you land on their site)
    - Absolutely no values!

    Advice to Management

    Lost your way. Listen to your employee. There is no harm to pay at market level

  3. Good Company to work for

    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 Management

    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.

  6. Great place to start testing but move on... quickly!!

    Excellent place to learn and grow as a testing specialist, very good place to be training as they have in house training company

    Cons

    The variety of projects, the clientst that were treated as a priority were not implementing cutting edge technology, there is a not enough of market share in Financial Services
    Salary Package often under market rates
    Hard to get on training courses

    Advice to Management

    Look at career development and reward those appropriately

    Pros

    Benefits and time off aredecent
    Consultants are talented

    Cons

    C level management calls all of the shots - out of touch with real world consulting and sales approaches. Leads by intimidation. Local Upper Management has to follow all of his unorthodox ideas and try their best to act like it's a good idea. Bonus levels are unattainable so don't be fooled during the interview process. Best to negotiate your salary very high at the beginning because you won't be seeing any significant increases over the years. Tenured consultants seem to be brainwashed into thinking there aren't other better opportunities outside of Sogeti. Things change on a dime; as do comp plans/benefits etc without any explanation or rationalization. Sales team is completely demotivated after recent comp changes; made morale at an all time low. Will be tough to attract decent sales people moving forward as they seem to be all looking for other opportunities where they are appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time with your consultants to find out what motivates them and get back to the basics of being a good company. You have talented consultants that want to work hard and be successful. Stop focusing on the small things such as travel expenses and monthly expenses. Those are highly scrutinized every week and make it seem like you don't trust your employees. Pay out your bonuses and create an environment of mutual success, not one sided to the CIO's pocket.

    Pros

    Sogeti has been a great employer to me for a few years now. I have been able to be upwardly mobile in the organization and have felt appreciated most of the time. There have been ups and downs but what company doesn't have that. I think they have made great strides to keep up with changing times and have improved their focus on being employee centric.

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication and messaging from corporate on changes. They are working to improve that but it's been somewhat damaging to morale when changes are announced, then recanted. Or when changes aren't fully explained, or implemented without warning. Internal technology needs upgrading.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage your internal wealth of talented people to upgrade our internal technology, use OCM experts before communicating change. Be transparent in communication. Allow more company events and perks for employees - goes a long way in making people feel appreciated.
