    Pros

    Very talented, innovative, customer centric people. Many with very long, successful careers with the company - both with Sogeti USA and moving between Capgemini Group business units. Great professional development and training opportunities. Super benefits and 401K matching at 150%, tuition reimbursement, etc. Very strong alliance relationships with key companies such as Microsoft, HP, IBM, and more.

    Cons

    Local empowerment is real for the most part, but sometimes it seems as if local entities are too dependent upon central BU or even Group HQ investment decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep technology infrastructure consistently at the most current releases, including laptops and back-end systems. Give more consultants access to tools needed so they can keep their skills current - from MSDN to Office 365 and Azure access.

    Pros

    When working with a consultancy like Sogeti the chances are you will be working with one of the client sites. Employee experiences will really depend on where they are based e.g. environment and working conditions will be different on a government and on a telecommunications account. As far as I am concerned it has been a great experience, I enjoy flexibility, opportunities to gain qualifications, social events(recent paintballing event was great) and other benefits that come with salary package.

    Cons

    Not many, but need to improve time booking systems and also we have recently lost a system where useful company and job related information was available and has not been replaced with a better system yet. Also, I should have been promoted last year but my application was turned down :(

    Advice to Management

    More fun activities, sporting events and promotions for people that deserve.


  3. A definite career choice!

    Pros

    The working environment is extremely friendly and family like orientated.
    This is the exact cultural fit that I look for when starting a new job.

    The companies core value of FUN is promoted on a daily basis with an array of events set up for socializing with colleagues - just this Saturday we had a corporate paintballing event with a great turnout.

    The workplace is very professional but feels relaxed due to the friendliness of others.
    Excellent training facilities.

    Lots of room for career development in a fast paced growing industry,

    Would highly recommend Sogeti UK as a career choice.

    Cons

    Team managers change too often.

    Pros

    Good work ethic and great work/social life through various company events such as paint ball and summer BBQs. Also Sogeti have regular reviews, so you always have a chance to go for a promotion, if you want to!

    Cons

    They can ask you to travel all over the place (as any other consultancy does), but I quite enjoy that part of the job :)

    Pros

    Great leadership, excellent professional development opportunities, transparent processes around promotions and bonus compensation. Sogeti is legitimately interested in serving their clients and employees. Perks like 401k and insurance are way above average.

    Cons

    It's hard to focus simultaneously on your practice, your unit and your client. Like all consultancies, Sogeti is a sales-driven enterprise.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your young talent; hire smart people; drive long term business through a series of short engagements rather than one long one; avoid public sector work.

    Pros

    I came from a small IT company to this company and the differences are stunning. The company invests in its employees by providing virtually unlimited training/learning opportunities including PMP, ITIL, etc. the work/life balance is amazing and the ability to work from home virtually whenever you feel like it make this place a great company. When I first started I could tell this would be a great place to work because most of my coworkers/fellow employees that I was introduced to had been with the company for 5-10 years so the turnover rate is low.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel like you can get lost in the shuffle since it is a worldwide company

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your younger employees as you currently are and improve upon the bonus program, maybe give each office flexibility in allowing raises instead of only being allowed to do so in October.

    Pros

    Healthcare is high deductible, but there is no premium. Fantastic 401k, just make sure you stay for 3 years. Additionally, they set aside 12k a year (per consultant) for tuition reimbursement - Masters degree, certifications, trainings, etc...

    Salary is competitive. Great job for recent grads especially.

    Cons

    401k takes 3 years to vest. High deductible insurance. Some clients just plain suck. Sometimes there is a lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    If a consultant is doing staff aug work, and they are unhappy, please work your hardest to find a new role.

    Pros

    Good people, good bonus structure - there seem to be many opportunities here if you want to be in a consultant role and work in multiple places.

    Cons

    You are expected to sell yourself to current and potential clients, which can be tough for an IT person
