    Pros

    Benefits,Msdn subscription,Laptop,clients,ok kind of leadership

    Cons

    Work culture ; Attitude of people; No support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying more attention to other units than just the Headquarters. You need to move people around quite a bit. The work culture is awful. Consultants are only respected if they are billing.

    Pros

    You have a job not a career. Company is falling apart.

    Cons

    Lack of technology, outdated laptops, no solutions, no leadership, don't appreciate or recognize talent. Don't leave two weeks notice; you will be let go that day. Poor pay, almost impossible to get good bonus. Too many roles for consultant and no focus. Too many technologies and no focus. Run away from this company!

    It is ok so far, but future seems to be deteriorating

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    150% 401K match
    No premium pay for health insurance

    Cons

    *Very high deductible health insurance- 12k
    *Bonus plan that never benefits a consultant. It only benefits the top management
    *No over time or comp time for extra hours worked. They say all the extra hours goes to your bonus points to increase your bonus potential. That is not true.
    *They are slowly taking away benefits from employees. The recent policy change was , no pto accrual if you have more than 200 hrs.
    *They are loosing clients. Account Executives are not capable.
    *It's a body shop.
    *They say they will pay on bench. But if they can't find a project for you in few weeks,, they will ask you to leave the company.
    *Very weak account exes who just care about their commission from their existing clients only. They don't look for new opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a vision what you want to be. Don't get caught up with the confusion of consulting firm vs body shop. In reality you are currently running a body shop.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Denver, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Denver, CO (US)

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits - matching 401K at 150% - tuition reimbursement - pay for certifications. Interesting assignments - paid time on bench.

    Cons

    If you use the benefits, it reduces your chance for a bonus. To earn a bonus, a lot of time outside of office hours is expected of you. Work life balance is what they promote but in reality, it does not happen. The more you do on your own time, the more that is expected of you.

    There is no transparency. People leave and they just disappear off the face of the earth - causes a lot of rumors to start - where if the company would just say "so and so has moved on for their own reasons", there would be less wondering and gossiping. Good people don't seem to last long - high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO doesn't care about the people at all. He claims transparency but there is none. You don't motivate people by humiliating them in front of their peers.

    Pros

    100% pay on bench
    Good client base
    Profit sharing and excellent 401k matching

    Cons

    Account execs are poor in looking out for new clients
    Not much investment in growing the sales team
    Not much brand recognition in the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the Sogeti name out in the market. Sponsor local events.
    Management has very strict top down approach. Local leaders do not have much leeway in making decisions in their respective units.
