Staff Augmentation with minimal communication

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Sogeti

ProsSogeti has a nice brand name with a high profile parent company; CapGemini. It has a great benefits package including a terrific 401k option...if you can wait 3 years for it to vest. There are lots of talented people employed by Sogeti who are passionate about what they do and can deliver high quality work.

ConsThere is little to no communication from leadership to it's consultants. The moral is low and not much is being done to change that. There is a high turnover rate and the projects are tactical in nature.

Advice to Senior ManagementRegroup and realize your consultants are a valued asset and not a warm body to staff. Have an open and transparent communication process.

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

Ethics

Recruiter (Former Employee)

I worked at Sogeti full-time

ProsGood Benefits and if you land the right project you will be happy until you land on the bench.

ConsEnvironment is fear driven and motivation is lacking. Not a place to inspire anyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementCould be such a great company if they just thought about decisions instead of reacting on what makes todays dollar. You miss the big picture of success when such short focus is used.

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

Worked as college hire for one year.

Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Sogeti full-time

ProsFrequently new projects; may switch practices once a year; potential for growth.

ConsIf you decided to specialize in a certain area of IT consulting and there are no projects on the pipeline in that area you will be let go. Must hound account reps for job placements. Insurance benefits are minimal.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that every entry level consultant has a competent advisor.
Don't allow practice leads to tell consultants guarantees when this may not be true. This gives a false sense of security when one could be looking for another job.

A nice place to visit but I couldn't stay.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I worked at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

ProsGood salary
Training opportunities (even while billing)
Big company means plenty of room for a rear growth if you're entrepreneurial
Local model (little if any travel)

ConsPerhaps too big. (You feel like a cog in a wheel)
Emphasis on revenue over ethics
Reactive leadership

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate proactively. It's easier to keep an employee happy than it is to try and fix things after the fact.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great consulting company with good benefits.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Sogeti full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey offer very good benefits including a high-matching 401k and health/dental, as well as a lot of financial support for education (hardly any request gets turned down). The people are very friendly and definitely strive to grow the company. Account execs work well to engage you on new opportunities, and the company encourages entrepreneurial spirit.

ConsNot much culture since you all usually work at different clients in different departments. The bonus plan is complicated and has never been popular. The counseling program is supposed to support your growth, but none of the ones I've had were very engaged.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the bonus program.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
