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

    Pros

    In a period of growth and with a management who empower staff to develop opportunities, this has been a revelation for me.

    Coming from industry and working with clients at the highest level, I was initially skeptical of the claim that this leading consulting firm was customer centric and encouraged entrepreneurial thinking and innovation.

    I'm delighted to say the group exceeded every expectation and I have had numerous opportunities to flourish with support and guidance.

    It's not for all, as the environment is tough with high demands but if you're willing to work hard and deliver, it's a great place to build your career.

    I have personally been impressed and at all times the management has put their money where their mouth is - backing retention plans and initiatives which keep good staff committed,

    Cons

    I think the operating model is more complex than it needs to be and will benefit from simplification in the future. However, I see the strategy ahead as very strong and the team leading capable of delivering on the promises for the future.

    Advice to Management

    I think we could be more agile and use collaborative tools more effectively - be brave and the consultants will embrace these and drive faster and bring more value to market quickly.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Capgemini Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good name in the CV (from the French brand)
    - Salaries in line with competitors and very good benefit package
    - You'll be taken care if you have issues with the Clients
    - There are cool projects
    - There are very nice and smart people working for this Company

    Cons

    - I'm afraid the company is transforming itself into a "body shopping" company, selling consultants with no care about their growth and career path
    - No rotation planned for people in many projects, you'll be left with the Client. If you are alone (sometimes your line manager is a competitor) you have no visibility and it gets very frustrating
    - The company doesn't care, at all, about the quality of delivery that you as a Consultant provide to its Clients. There is no oversight and there is no difference from their perspective from someone working in a A type project and someone working for another project. This means at calibration you can sell your project work as you wish, and playing the "internal work" game you can get promoted easily, but remember if you are stuck in a difficult project the Company doesn't know. The "delivery" element of your work (the thing that takes 99% of your time every day) is only 1 element they evaluate you against, but there are other 5 elements (growth, talent etc.) much more weighted
    - If you want to be promoted, there's only one thing to do: you have to do A LOT of internal work (blogging, helping VPs with bids, joining or arranging workshops etc.) all nice things but too much weighted for a Consulting company. A lot of people arrange recurring calls with doubtful meaning just to show they are pro-active and thick the box. Many times nothing happens as a result of these calls
    - Some VPs are of very doubtful skillsets for the position they cover. A few of them are sales people with no technical idea of the projects they are selling consultants for
    - The idea of the company is to build your skillset within the same Client to sell you better in the future. There is no idea of proper rotation, especially within FS. This means it's very difficult to change Client. This goes against why someone chooses a Consulting company but it's in line with the "Body shopping" mentality
    - Some Counsellors are not available and don't respond to your queries, never, meaning it's very difficult to get promoted unless you escalate
    - Of the four divisions (BMT, OPEX etc.) a lot of times you'll find yourself to work in a complete different thing. If you work with someone from another capability, the result is that even if you've worked together for the same project, same Client, similar role, you might get your salary raised and the other person might not, just because of budget constraints in the other division

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the brand name and give more importance to oversight the quality of deliverables that consultants provide to your Clients, a lot of people just do a lot of internal work to "thick the box" and be promoted because they know that's the game.

    Pros

    There's a real people culture here, very flat hierarchy. Lots of career development opportunities, work within a range of sectors and capabilities. People allowed to be themselves, big focus on diversity and active inclusion.

    Cons

    Not specific to Capgemini but more consulting in general, the work/life balance often takes a hit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to review and refine performance review processes.
