    I have been working at Sogeti

    Pros

    Benefit package pays premiums; good bonus program; lots of locations to transfer to.
    Very diverse fields of work, primarily contract staff augmentation, much of it for the State of Florida.
    I saw very little effort at personal growth, most efforts was toward increasing bonus amounts via social and charity involvement - little input from actual work effort of accomplishments.

    Cons

    Highly "encouraged" involvement in charitable and social events, aimed at increasing bonus amounts. Margins were slim, resulting in several years with pay increases - not even COL amounts. While the position was represented as relatively short (6 month) contracts - in, do the job, turn over, and leave; in reality one contract lasted over a year and a half.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - The level of expertise of my fellow consultants
    - Opportunity to work on a wide range of technologies in an even wider range of clients
    - Reimbursement for certification tests

    Cons

    - Inadequate transparency with regards to what clients I will be placed at and when.
    - Completely broken bonus system that benefits only Managing Consultants and above.
    - Insufficient salary for what is expected of a entry consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delete the bonus system, and increase the base salary of all A level consultants to fair market value using some of the profits you brag about at all the all hands calls.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is opportunity for career advancement, and opportunity to work with cutting edge technologies. Single biggest advantage is "bench" time of receiving a paycheck between projects.

    Cons

    The paycheck is smaller than other companies to compensate for the cost of bench time. The structure for allocating bonus is completely screwed up. Everyone is unhappy about 2015 pay raise, or lack thereof. Moral is declining rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think strategically, and expect to spend money in a strategic plan, rather than worrying about the short term margin.
