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

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance
    - Working from home available on some client projects
    - Chilled company culture, not stiff and competitive like other big consultancy firms
    - Good investment into your work education (certifications etc)
    - Good social scene for the graduate scheme community

    Cons

    - Less competitive pay than other consultancy firms (a lot of people leave for this reason)
    - Not enough insight for graduate trainees to develop in different areas for their career progression
    - Can be a bit slow to get tasks executed quickly
    - Sometimes outdated in their thinking but VPs have decided to tackle this issue next year
    - Poor career progression (again, VPs have stated that they will tackle this issue... we will see)
    - Work assigned can sometimes be repetitive and not challenging

    Advice to Management

    Allow for better career progression and leverage for consultants on the graduate scheme to learn more about different areas in the company
    Provide more competitive salaries

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great at encouraging graduates to gain technical skills and gain relevant certification.

    Cons

    - Lack of career opportunities
    - Lack of exposure to different types of projects
    - Senior management/ consultants don't appreciate the skills graduates can bring so graduates get stuck doing mundane tasks such as updating trackers, writing meeting notes on a regular basis which makes them look elsewhere
    - Tendency to micromanage thus not allowing for much progress
    - No work/ life balance

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to when concerns are raised rather than dismiss them
    - Understand that senior management may be better at talking rather than doing actual work
    - Better compensation compared to competitors

    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.
