    Poorly managed staffing firm (Seattle unit)

    Consultant (Former Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

    Pros- place where you will definitely end up getting a job
    - reason for above is consultants do not stay here for long unless they have a personal limitation ( family or otherwise) and there is no reason they should unless they have a personal limitation ( family or otherwise)
    - anyone looking to join should plan well in advance their priorities and manage their expectations
    - my advice would be to go with the flow in this unit and don't be surprised if you get a whole new flavor of consulting experience

    Cons- certainly not a place for technical consultants
    - neither a place for young aspiring candidates to hope for an awesome start to their careers
    - don't be surprised with workplace politics in this unit ; higher ups spend more time dealing/creating politics and serving self interests than focusing on growing the company or people or finding projects

    Advice to Senior Management- manage the culture crisis and the talent crisis in Seattle unit
    - invest in right kind of talent especially at the higher end of the hierarchy in this unit
    - I had heard some great things about Sogeti from people who worked long back that was the reason I joined, I was definitely disappointed to see the current failing state
    - Seattle unit needs a total re-haul - do that re-haul
    - as with anything persistence pays - so good luck with your efforts!

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

    Employment is like a Contract position

    Manager Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsBig offers to make you dream of career growth, Educational assistance upto 12 grand a year, 150% 401K Contribution etc..

    But dreams will remain as dream.. They will terminate you before your 401K vesting start (within 3 years)
    They will never approve your educational expense request..
    You will be terminated as soon as your billing ends..

    A big Sham and a big shame for Cap Gemini for carrying this brand

    ConsThey will not promote any career growth, educational assistance and terminate you before your 401K company contribution gets vested

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take out all the attractive benefits and accept that you are like a contracting company who wil terminate employees as they complete their billing engagement

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

    So-So

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDallas office had personable consultants

    ConsManagement is not at client sites and therefore promotions are given based off office politics rather than performance. Very bottom line company, they want you out and billable and don't care if your happy in that role. Very smooth talkers and will say they will try to get you moved to a different project but often times that doesn't happen and they simply tell you they are "aggressively" working on it

    Advice to Senior Managementpromotions should be based of performance not brown nosing.

    Good people, mediocre leadership team

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD (US)

    ProsThey seem to pay ok relative to peers, profit levels support at market pay

    ConsLeadership is simply abysmal. We want to be Deloitte or IBM or Accenture is not a business strategy. This is your atypical IT company filled with smart engineers that understand computer code and cyberspace - and have no idea about human beings and behavior. Which is what makes Sogeti mediocre and an also-ran as a competitor in their space. They simply believe that money is the #1 an only factor that motivates people to do their jobs and fear of another guy getting more drives you to do it better. This is really what they believe

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Would serve no purpose

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, but always keep a lookout for another job

    IT Consultant (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH (US)

    ProsProbably benefits and generous pay

    Cons2 week notice for layoff

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!
