    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.

    I worked at Capgemini Consulting full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people and a huge amount of diversity. Working in Digital, their accelerated solutions environment and great people all add to a fantastic working environment. Freedom and Trust are embedded company values and these values mean you have much opportunity to take ideas and fresh thinking and make your ideas come to life.

    Cons

    It is a great shame to have seen high attrition from ex-Gemini employees. These employees offered a way of working and thinking that added huge value to personal development and project success. Also the strategy arm (formally SRG) has now fizzled away which again is a great value loss to delivery, but also a skill set that is now far and between.

    Advice to Management

    It's not strategy OR digital OR change management, it's the hybrid of them all. Deeper training to re-engage the SRG, Gemini delivery approach would add much value to digital delivery. Reinvigorate training, better use of Les Fontaines training centre, bring back deep democracy training, etc.., all with a link to Digital.

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

    Pros

    Really smart, engaging and talented people who are at the top of their game.
    Wonderful opportunities to learn - Capgemini University
    Good remuneration - fairly industry standard

    Cons

    Even though they say flexible, you work 5 days in 4 if you are working 4 days a week.
    Expected to work anytime needed for clients
    Business values not held on client site - can drive bad behaviours
    Typical negative consulting issues - resourced to business needs not personal career plans, travel is global and at the drop of a hat, pregnancy is career death

    Advice to Management

    The old ways might need to be adapted to retain young female talent - don't be afraid of clients reactions.
