      Pros

      Generally a good brand consultancy firm, it will look good on your cv and to your future employers. Exposure to big complex projects, which can challenge you but also good for the experience and development. Some great colleagues, very talented and knowledgable people.

      Cons

      Processes are horrific, dated and you genuinely don't get the feeling you work for Capgemini when you are 100% assigned to a Client project which is a long term engagement. Processes within the company are slow, dated, confusing. Training is virtually nothing as well as onboarding. Pay is low in comparison to other consultancy firms and promotions are difficult to obtain. Bonuses are only applicable to very senior positions.Be prepared to travel and sacrifice work life balance if you are staffed on a project which is not near your base.

      Pay is a pittance

      25 Jan 2021 - Software Engineer Lead in London, England, England

      Pros

      - Really great environment for learning and growth. You will be supported in whatever certifications you want to go for, in fact it is encouraged. - There is major investment into their Junior talent as well, and any new graduates/apprentices joining feel welcomed and supported. - There is a push to get involved in company initiatives which is good to get people out of their shells and network, and it reinforces a sense of community within department and teams. - All in all, for learning and personal/professional growth, great culture. - Lots of diversity and inclusion initiatives.

      Cons

      The pay is a pittance! Not competitive at all! - Yearly pay reviews only increase your salary by £1k. What difference is £1k increase a year going to make?! That's not even keeping up with inflation, so really you're falling behind on salary every year. - with only £1k increase a year, within two years from a graduate salary (£30k) you'll be promoted to Lead Software Engineer, no doubt doing Lead Software Engineer work and responsibilities, but with only a salary of £32k. Pathetic! Absolute joke! - The benefits come in a 'flexible benefits' allowance of which most gets used up by pension and life assurance, and then whatever more benefits you choose come out of your salary. Not really benefits if you gotta pay for them. - Private health /dental is not even provided unless you choose it - other companies provide it as standard for ALL their employees. - Package is not competitive AT ALL for a software engineer in this industry. In fact, it's pathetic. You can come in demanding a good salary, but don't expect much of a raise year upon year.

      A great place to work, and they actually live their values

      Pros

      They care about their people Decent ish money

      Cons

      You won't always be doing the job you expect. You essentially go into a bank of 'clever people', and what you end up doing depends what the project you're assigned to needs. I'm not doing what I expected, and am starting to look around. But it's a great company, and I don't really want to leave.
