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

    Pros

    generally good benefits package. friendly and supportive working environment for the most part. company slogan: "people matter, results count" is actually quite close to true.

    Cons

    work-life balance often gets lost. generally pay below the market rate. quite bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    remember the "people matter" in the company slogan.

    Advice to Management

    - Pay your staff more otherwise they will keep on leaving

    Pros

    Opportunities if you go after them, good benefits (can buy 10 days hol per year),

    Cons

    Some parts of the business do not have the most transparent promotions process. Big boost on grad hires but they do not always put them in roles which allow them to develop.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on giving grads roles that offer opportunities to develop, make sure people don't get left behind stuck on bad projects.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good clients/industries to get experience on. Good individuals can make engagements and project enjoyable

    Cons

    Very amateur management, lack of leadership qualities and judgement. Numbers driven, always about utilisation. Unwilling to approve training. Poor communications and complete lack of people skills. All leading to very high staff turnover. Scared of clients, not real consultants, just hired workers

    Advice to Management

    Promote people with leadership quality, not brown nosers. Listen to staff, sort of retention issue

    Pros

    Some very talented and dedicated people

    Cons

    Senior management treatment of work force

    Advice to Management

    Start to care for the work force and the company will be very very good

    Pros

    Good company values which are put in practice, very nice colleagues and good salary conditions

    Cons

    Management is the main disadvantage in this company. Although your peers are competent, managers often lack good managerial skills and this is the reason I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Select managers based on competency, not based on politics or seniority

    Pros

    The people you work with and the genuine adherence to the company values which promote collaboration, the importance of maintaining a work-life balance and fun

    Cons

    Not many local clients or much training on offer. Quite a top-heavy organisation with lots of dead wood, although conversely this makes it easier to stand out from the crowd
