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

    Pros

    Having worked for Capgemini Consulting for 4 years I can honestly say it is a great place to work. There is ample support around the business from your peer network to the senior management team - everyone wants help each other to succeed.

    - Excellent career progression - twice yearly promotion cycle
    - Working with passionate & intelligent people
    - Opportunities to build new capabilities and sector knowledge
    - Great team spirit

    Cons

    Very London centric, whilst it is possible to live in the regions and work for Capgemini Consulting it can be tricky to link back to base.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the hire process for experienced industry hires - It is not an easy to transition from industry roles into consulting.

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

    Pros

    I'm really glad I joined, having moved from a different industry. Cap have a really supportive atmosphere which feeds down from their way of working with clients. It's been refreshing being surrounded by people who are intelligent, capable, and motivated. There have been lots of events and investment in our learning through both informal and formal training for which I'm thankful.

    Cons

    At times, the way the company has been divided into different groups has been confusing - though there is no perfect way to do this.

    Advice to Management

    It comes across as if the company is moving in the right direction, with lots of good work on the horizon, so long may this continue!

    Pros

    Encourages people to shape and drive own development, supported by a great network of people, both through formal line management and mentoring structures and informal coaching.

    A great portfolio of clients, giving people the opportunity to work with leading brands in their market or capability area

    Size - not too big, not too small. A perfect balance for someone who wants to feel part of a large global organisation, with the intimacy of a small firm (Capgemini Consulting UK is about 450 people, Capgemini globally is 140000!)

    Global footprint and strong French heritage - this does permeate through the culture and the opportunities to work with counterparts on the continent and globally are there if you want them

    Ambitious and intelligent group of people, without a nasty competitive/back stabbing culture

    Cons

    As with most consulting firms, regular travel and working away from home is part and parcel of the role. The firm does encourage people to be back in London for Thursday nights and then in the London office on Fridays, but sometimes the realities of client projects get in the way of this.

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

    Pros

    Working with a team of real experts who understand the industry and how to address challenges.
    Team set up to make it as easy as possible for people joining from industry to quickly get consulting skills.
    Good client base of high profile retailers.

    Cons

    Team are in high demand so often there is not much down time between assignments.
    At times can be challenging to get together face to face as a team with people spread out at clients.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the entrepreneurial spirit of change being driven within the team. Harness the knowledge of our people to help us learn from each other.

    Pros

    Very flexible.
    Good pay.
    Variable work.
    You're a consultant - you get changes and travel all the time - pro/con depending on what you're looking for
    Lots of social events

    Cons

    Would be good to see more high end digital work.
    You're a consultant - you get changes and travel all the time - pro/con depending on what you're looking for.
    Document /collateral sharing internally could be better.

    Advice to Management

    A clearer strategy is required, particularly in FS however, I know this is currently in development... If we get this right we have a bright future ahead.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Recently refurbished office environment - getting pressure from the parent company to evolve toward true digital transformation consulting; few examples of good senior VPs mainly in the Financial Sector or Opex; potentially great values when applied and lived by very few.
    great HR team let down by bad top management.

    Cons

    Led by a lobby of old fashioned EY consultants from old failed merger; keen to maximise utilisation without regard for Client or employees interest; a bully culture of managers telling what to do rather promoting development and initiatives; big silo mentality; management don't like to be challenged and don't like change; just maximising their own income before retiring; worst areas to work are Customer Experience Practice and Consumer Goods Sector

    Advice to Management

    Consider big Leadership transformation

    Pros

    A real blend of consulting, very strong in CPR, Utilities and latterly FS. We can really leverage our other businesses e.g. our APPs, Managed Services, Digital and technology

    Great group of people, friendly and open place to work

    Cons

    We don't tell enough people in the market and potential candidates about what we do and how well we do it. Modesty is charming, but we should share more of our successes

    Pros

    People are interesting, intelligent and committed. Values are very strong and employees are from a variety of backgrounds, nationalities etc. Digital capabilities very strong with real focus on innovation. Overall compensation is good. Training is also good.

    Cons

    Projects are mixed (some interesting and some not so interesting) and do not always suit career ambitions. Expectations for internal work can be difficult to achieve alongside demanding project work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on winning interesting projects to retain your best employees.
