    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing, they make the company. They are so laid back no matter how senior.
    The support is very good, I have a mentor and a reviewer and a buddy plus a wide network of people willing to help
    The amount of training I have been offered is really good

    Cons

    Pays less than other consultancies
    I am in the technology side and the projects for a business consultant aren't about innovation but about implementing IT software which isn't very interesting
    Sometimes it is hard to move up ranks because promotions then to be based on time in grade and who you know rather than your ability

    Advice to Management

    Consider the personal life of staff more often, take into account whether they mind living in hotels or not.
    Praise and reward more often
    Organise more socials
