    Technology based consulting with a team based approach for solving client problems.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Consulting with a focus on local clients and long term relationships. I enjoy the team approach and collaboration among my colleagues in the local office and across the globe. The push for innovation within as well as what we offer our clients in services always keeps me satisfied with my career progress.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits seem to on the decline although this seems to be an industry trend.

    Pros

    Lot of emphasis on sales which is good but if the person is sales oriented.

    Cons

    Less emphasis on team structure and team building. Salaries need to be normalized based on location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on resource management.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company culture is pretty good. The people I worked with were friendly, and the benefits were ok if I recall.

    Cons

    Didn't like the Health insurance (high deductible). In house training resources were not impressive, closer to powerpoints than any type of actual classes.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Offer opportunities for those with little experience in the field or college grads to break into the IT space. Training/knowledge base is expansive for those that take advantage of it - although it's all online. Great 401(k) program

    Cons

    Projects are more staff augmentation based then true consulting. You're expected to be onsite at one client for 40 hours - working at the client direction; Sogeti is more of a glamorized staffing firm with great benefits. Forget trying to get experience and be paid what you'd get out in the market - you'll have to leave the company for that. If you come in at a higher salary, don't expect a raise. Not really a place to stay and grow your career.

    Great place to work. Fun. Challenging. Super talented, innovative people. You can really make a difference. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow. Rewarding. Feels like family, in a good day. People care.

    If you have a contractor mentality, don't bother. We're a consulting company. Looking for innovative consultants who want a long, rewarding, fun, challenging, growing career with us.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the unit I worked in the management team was great. They had the contacts in the area to make the sales. When the new CIO started adjusting the sales compensation and how he wanted to go after sales the unit went down hill.

    Cons

    No one cared about how work was done...no checking on the staff work...also the benfits were outstanding but the company started to chip away he year taking some away..the bonus program was great while under the control of the units manager but the that was taken away and put under corprate....very poor now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CIO for Sogeti USA and area managers...let the unit managers run the units...

    I think the Sogeti CEO needs to talk with the staff at Sogeti USA

    I have been working at Sogeti (less than an year)

    Pros

    Diversity of opportunity. Many large clients to deliver solutions for, diverse set of solutions and practices, you truly have an opportunity to grow and prosper. I'm a little frustrated reading the negative reviews, Sogeti is really a place that will reward you for the effort you put forth. Consulting is tough by nature. If you are lazy, you probably won't do well. Sogeti leadership I've worked with have a ton of integrity.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a brand identity issue as the business evolves from staff augmentation to all solution oriented. Some solutions are not fully baked, but most are. Don't complain about it, dig in and help develop them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about marketplace brand. Think broadly about the sales process and who the customer is (it's not always the CIO).
