It is a good start

Senior IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

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

ProsIt is a good place to start; however, Toronto center wasn't the best place to grow.

ConsAlthough the pay is competitive, the work environment is to process centric, there is no place for innovation or personal development. I quickly found that the lack of challenges and opportunities were forcing me to find different challenges outside the company

Advice to Senior ManagementMore engagement from all levels of management.
