    Specific to Hosting Group: No Career Growth – Extremely Poor, Self-Centered Upper Management Throughout

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Smart, technically savvy people to work with
    - Good On-Boarding start up Base Salary – be sure to negotiate a good entry salary or regret it later.
    - Good Bonus

    Cons

    Absolutely no leadership/project management skills exhibited from Senior Management. (They’re too busy chasing down new accounts to line their own pockets.)
    - Too much of a ‘gap’ between the Consultants and upper management. Upper Management is totally impotent and disconnected. Management is often unresponsive to employee’s emails.
    - Hosting Adjoined/Kanbay Legacy Senior Managers/VPs are self-centered and do NOT care about the lower-level Consultants. All they want to do is come in, chase new accounts, collect their $150-$250k salaries, and go home.
    - No training $$s granted whatsoever for skill development.
    - No communication between upper management to consultants regarding:
    Career growth, project on and off-boarding, performance reviews. Everything is done in a ‘backroom’ , last minute type of way. You're assigned a People Manager who usually has no idea what you do, but is expected to make performance rating decisions about you.
    - Total lack of cooperation regarding process and procedural guidelines. Management is not motivated to enforce internal P&Ps and does not admonish those who resist attempts at P&P implementation. Need to implement systems with built-in business rules. Not the home-grown ones currently in use.
    - MVP performance tool is totally inadequate. HR recently unveiled the ‘new and improved’ MVP performance tool which basically places ‘Sales’ as the number one indicator of an employee’s performance. What about employees that have absolutely no connection to sales? Well, they are basically screwed. This model only rewards the Adjoined/Kanbay Legacy Senior Management/VPs and punishes the newer employees at lower levels. I have not had an increase in base pay because of the ‘economy’ – while the Hosting group continues to bring in millions of dollars in new engagements. The MVP tool is designed to harass the employees and ensure that they fail the litmus test it has created. That is why more than 2/3s of the company’s employees receive overall ‘3’ ratings on their reviews which, as of late, equals no increase in pay.
    - A clique mentality exists among the Adjoined/Kanbay Legacy folks. They take care of their own and neglect the newer folks. Must be constantly connected and kissing a#$ to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the points listed above (and)
    Fire the Adjoined/Kanbay Legacy VPs and the President (SP) in Phoenix, and replace them with competent people who know how to manage people and projects.
    Do away with MVP and give EVERYONE who hasn’t had a raise in 3-4 yrs. a ‘catch-up’ 7-9% merit increase in pay immediately or continue to see your high attrition rate.
