    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the group for 20 years and we have got a set of values that I always keep in mind, the majority of people I have worked with have lived most or all of those values most of the time (no-one's perfect!) My favourite of the values is Freedom. I always find that there are few constraints put on how I deliver my role, I have the freedom to engage and to perform and to find the best way of delivering what I need to deliver. My second favorite is Fun, which of course needs no explanation

    Cons

    As with any matrix organisation, sometimes it takes longer to make a decision than it should, and i think we need to get more serious about really bringing diversity to the group leadership

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Rewarded for your performance appropriately and supported to achieve your career goals

    Cons

    1. Work life balance can be hard to manage at times due to the fast paced nature of the role

    3. Large organisation with many areas working in silo's

    Advice to Management

    Better joined up working across accounts and market units is required

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

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with.
    Loads of opportunity to learn and develop.
    You're given a lot of responsibility and freedom to do things your own way.
    An increasingly open approach to flexible working (although this does depend on which part of the business you work for).
    Strong desire to create and maintain a really inclusive working environment.

    Cons

    In my current role my manager is very hands off - you can see this as a pro or a con. There are times when I love the freedom, and times when I'd appreciate a bit more guidance and closer management.
    If you're proactive and have a clear idea of what you want to do / achieve you'll be given loads of opportunity here and you'll do well. If you sit back and wait to be told what to do you are unlikely to advance very quickly.
    Pay rises outside of promotion years can be small or non-existent - if you're not moving up in the business, you'll frequently find you're going backwards in terms of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the push to deliver flexible working to all areas of the business.
    Be more transparent around pay.

    Pros

    What makes a great organisation is the people, so far I have been nothing but impressed from the leadership right the way down to the grads. Everyone is so helpful and go out of there way to make you feel part of the organisation, which is refreshing to see.

    So far work life balance with the travel has been good, able to work from home on Fridays which is a plus. Promotion process is clear, great central location offices, Training is fantastic do as much as you desire they really push the we are a people business message which I can see is the case.

    Cons

    Nothing really, but if I had to complain I find the no lunch expense policy when working away from home and staying overnight a little bizarre.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and do more Town halls, like to hear about the great work we are doing not just in our business area!

    Pros

    Great trust in the business they leave you to perform and have faith in the team that they put together

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in a large project with globally renowned companies.
    Opportunity to work with the latest technologies like Docker, Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Elastic Search etc

    Cons

    For a consultancy that focuses on delivering software solutions to clients, engineers are truely undervalued. The pay is bad.
    Graduate salary starts at around £26k for all regions (including London...) and pay rises are usually 3%-7% (anything higher than 6% is pretty lucky).
    There is so much demand for Software Engineers in the market, yet Capgemini keeps their salaries low, even for experienced developers. It is well below market rate which is causing all the good engineers to leave.
    After leaving Capgemini, I increased my salary by 200% in 2 years, I wouldn't get anything close if i was to stay. Engineers are in high demand right now, you are worth more.

    Advice to Management

    Value your engineers more - you are a IT Consultancy firm that delivers technology SOLUTIONS to clients yet your delivery team are at the very bottom of the payroll. Capgemini Consultants (CC) and Management Consultants are paid a lot more than engineers, even at graduate level. You will just be left with bad developers.
