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

    Pros

    Worked here for 3 years and it started out good at first until I found out I was lied to. It is more of my fault but if you go to work for this company make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing.

    Cons

    To much micro management. To short sited. They have a Country of "India" mentality. They only focus on what they know (which is 10 years old) and refuse to adapt to new emerging markets. If you like being a drone and having to report to 15 different people then this company is perfect for you. They say and try to project a fun work place where they are open to ideas but at the end of the day they just want you to nod your head and keep doing what they told you even if it is wrong and impractical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more agile, open minded, and practical. Act like an IT consulting firm and stay up to date with current trends instead of holding onto windows 95.

    Pros

    Training offered, certifications and tuition reimbursement & 401k.

    Cons

    Each year something else is taken away from employees. Great 401k but takes 3 years to be vested and they contribute the I portion 1 time per year. Overall I have noticed a disconnect in what they say and what they deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to your roots. Overall disconnect with what is going on.

    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.

    Former Employee - Consultant In Digital Transformation in Cincinnati, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    - Free soda and coffee
    - Great benefits (401k, profit share)

    Cons

    - Managers are extremely incompetent. When I was hired, I was told that clients were lining up outside the door and projects would be flooding in, so they needed me. After 4 months sitting in a cold, windowless office, I left after getting 0 projects while I was there. The execs don't even try to get digital projects, they are too concerned about P&G and GE contracts.

    - My managers had the poorest communication skills I've ever seen in a professional environment. My direct supervisor had a STRONG Indian accent, I could barely understand what he was saying and his e-mails and texts were even worse. He blamed me for the communication problems, even though several co-workers had told me that they were experiencing the same thing.

    - They hire you after seeing what skills you have, then when you get there ask you to do jobs involving skills you have 0 experience with. You have to learn the skill while doing the job, which makes it very stressful and inefficient.

    - Spread their resources too thin. I was skipped over for some contracts in favor of other, equally-skilled consultants even though they were swamped with work as it is, merely because the manager or exec knew them personally. There's a lot of personal bias.

    - Depressing work environment. The suits in the corner offices don't even acknowledge that you exist, and since everyone is in and out of ATO, you never see anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that can actually communicate effectively in English. Change your ATO policies. Use your resources effectively. Don't make false promises to new hires, or you will never change your absurdly high turnover. Get a better work environment for those on ATO, it just sucks. Everyone in that office looked like they wanted to shoot themselves.

    Pros

    They first treat your very nicely.
    Spend time and money on multiple lunch interviews with several people.

    Cons

    Once you are hired the life becomes miserable.
    No over time is paid neither in dollars nor in time off.
    Attitude of account managers become 180 degree different.
    They find you useless in 3-6 months as soon as the contract finish up with the client.
    Poor bench policy.
    Focus on quantity of contractors not quality.
    This is one of the biggest reason of lack of client trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire reasonable staff to recruit and keep good people thru better incentives.
    Know how to differentiate between good and bad workforce.

    despite the propaganda, just another margin-focused outsourcer

    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.
