    I worked at Capgemini (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent culture, numerous learning opportunities, superior people management skills exhibited by managers, just a great place to work & learn

    Cons

    Can't think of anything specific to the company. There may be some problems with a project or manager but not anything for the employer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, focus a little more on the Canadian market in terms of business development

    "Could probably be good depending on which practice you're in, but my experience was not a happy one"

    I worked at Capgemini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Capgemini is a large, established company, which translates into the kinds of perks you'd expect: competitive pay, decent benefits, and things like training, support, and methodology.

    Cons

    Capgemini is an incredibly siloed company, which translates into the kinds of hassles you'd expect: poor communication, poor internal mobility, and highly inconsistent training, support, and methodology depending on which practice you happen to be attached to. Also, some practices have a strong "body shop" focus - bid low to win the contract, then staff it with whoever you can find and never mind the little details like skillset match.

    Advice to Management

    Every onboarding deck, periodic training module, and corporate all-hands meeting talks big about Capgemini's core values. For some people, the reality on the ground is very, very far removed from those values. Leadership should recommit to the ideals of delivering honesty and quality to clients, and get off the "underbid the contract to win the business, and then issue a series of change requests to make up the difference" treadmill.

    Pros

    Work culture is relaxed, and people are generally friendly and open. Compensation is also generally on par with industry, on the positive side.

    Cons

    Getting your review through is an active effort you have to manage with your manager. You have to make sure everyone talks to everyone else in order to advance your case even in the junior levels. Hard work will not be recognized by default, you must always broadcast and play politics.
