    Not a terrible place to work

    I have been working at Capgemini

    Pros

    Some people work ridiculous hours, some don't. I'm in the category of people that don't. I work my set schedule, then go home. I have some managerial duties after hours that won't apply to 90% of the folks hired.

    Cons

    You can only move up once per year, if you start in January, you will wait a minimum of 2 years to get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up the "everyone gets promoted at one time" model.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a Business consultant, you get access to many processes and info's about mature companies. This kind of knowledge is instrumental to have a fast track introduction into the "real business" after the university

    Cons

    The issue is with all Consultancy firms is that they are tending to have expertize on everything and to reuse same recommendations on and on. Not all companies are like that, but my opinion is that the majority of them are like that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that the Consultancy companies should be focused in one or two areas, not to all kind of business

    Its a consulting gig, expect lots of different issues and opportunities.

    Create better company culture via conferences or some other get together s.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company is doing well. Interesting work and the people are not hyper-aggressive. I like that I am left alone to run my engagements. There is a caring aspect to the company, which I have rarely seen in large companies. But I have seen multiple instances where people with personal stuff are supported. This is part of the culture.

    Cons

    The back office tools (expense reports, purchasing, etc) are really poor. HR systems are just so-so. The company does not grow great managers.

    I worked at Capgemini

    Pros

    Very easy to reach anyone in the company. Great pay. I enjoyed the job. Lots of access to various clients.

    Cons

    Work life balance would be the number one concern. It's a consultant gig; expect no less or more.
