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

    Pros

    Some good clients/industries to get experience on. Good individuals can make engagements and project enjoyable

    Cons

    Very amateur management, lack of leadership qualities and judgement. Numbers driven, always about utilisation. Unwilling to approve training. Poor communications and complete lack of people skills. All leading to very high staff turnover. Scared of clients, not real consultants, just hired workers

    Advice to Management

    Promote people with leadership quality, not brown nosers. Listen to staff, sort of retention issue

    Pros

    Good company values which are put in practice, very nice colleagues and good salary conditions

    Cons

    Management is the main disadvantage in this company. Although your peers are competent, managers often lack good managerial skills and this is the reason I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Select managers based on competency, not based on politics or seniority

    I worked at Capgemini as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced area where you are allowed to think and creatively solve problems for customers

    Cons

    I hit the ground running, there was no opportunity to be prepared for the task i was to face on customer site. I think there is also a cultural issue where the 'indians' keep to themselves. You usually feel like a stranger when in the midst of them as they openly switch to talking in vernacular right there. I didn't think it was a good thing but i eventually learnt to ignore it. Pay wasn't too fantastic giving the job expectations

    Advice to Management

    Set a proper on-boarding structure in place for new employees

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

    Pros

    Some of the people are ok generally junior ones

    Cons

    -Most people were not particularly nice or easy to get on with especially senior ones
    -Senior management don't feel particularly knowledgeable or experienced
    -People terminated in probation period as if don't have enough chargeable hours because of a lack of work available- if you have significant financial commitment (mortgage, student loans) this is not the place for you
    -They have to being in more experienced people from Infrastructure/apps and there is a distinct lack of knowledge/experience in consulting
    -Pretty much bodyshopping anyone they can at 2 big bank one from hong kong they other a black horse - if you do go you can expect an significant period of time waiting to be onboarded which affects your utilisation to the point you wont meet your annual performance objectives
    -Compensation is average at best
    -A lot of people leave on a regular basis

    Advice to Management

    None. They already whats wrong and cant be bothered to address and would rather just rather endlessly replace people insead
