I have been working at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)
-Great work life balance
-Great platform for graduates and fast track development
-Young vibe around the office
-Technical people are not rewarded as much as functional (worked in my favour but against some other grads)
-Like any company several slow middle managers set in their ways
-Because of the great culture, its easy to get complacent and to go into cruise mode
-Development and certs - cut into personal time if you're on project
-Some service lines have aggressive KPIs for billing times on client site (not hitting KPIs isn't an issue if you have good support and doing good things)
-Some gigs are more augmented vs delivery. This means some people can get stuck at long slow engagements (Typically only SAP/Testing - other service lines usually have short/exciting/greenfield projects)
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Sydney) in March 2014.
As part of graduate recruitment the following steps were undertaken
1. Online application - including resume & covering letter
2. Initial phone screen - basic questions, why consulting, why capgemini, are you available for the assessment centre etc.
3. Assessment Centre - A full day activity which you may have to travel to interstate out of your own pocket. This was 7 rigorous hours of team based activities and case studies where of the 70+ that attended, around 16 made the final cut.
4. Final interview with potential practice lead. This was a friendly informal conversation where we discussed the work that goes on at Capgemini, personal interests and strengths, and some basic arithmetic thrown in for good measure.
