Good guys , average skill set

Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 3 years

Proslike any consulting company this review is specific to the practise (SAP in my case) you are part of.
General work life balance is good, people get promoted although sometimes based on seniority, some exceptionally good guys are always there and if you can get hands on people from other countries like European ones, you can get exposed to some great work.

ConsCross country integration is poor
Training is average, people are not top tier

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Incredibly poorly run company.

Associate Director (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI got to work with people all over the world, and I got to travel a lot.

ConsHorrible salaries, no advancement, no tuition reimbursement, not much office space, the office space available is so run down you could never bring a client there, and don't expect to get a bonus. Overall, it's a horribly run company with a 30% attrition rate. The average employee lasts about 28 months, but the average for new hires direct from college is about 18 months. That kind of says it all.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust give up and sell the company to IBM or Accenture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
