    I have been working at Capgemini (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job Security is the advantage but this is disappearing very fast.
    Environment and ambiance is pretty relaxed.

    Cons

    Pros is the biggest Cons since this has led to top heavy structure.
    Transfer internally to other BUs is a challenge and works in a negative way.
    Lacks motivation to mid level people.
    Designation is based on Salary which is a fallacy for non technical persons.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good for Freshers joining this company and getting the project ASAP.

    For Laterals and talented its a waste of time and Career spoiling company... There 65% of old employees are incapable/unskilled as mentioned in news. But you as a New joinee will be expected to work (as shadow resource) under existing employees (even if there skills/experience is only 1% to 90% less than you) .

    In-short its NO MORE a offshore based company,,,,, but is a pure Body-Shopping company and there is dirt of new projects.

    Cons

    Lazy Sales team and Senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    NO matter... since you already aware of all issues....
    You are only making money by giving False commitments to employees while joining the company.
    Even the written email commitment has NO value in your processes......

    I worked at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    Lots of projects.
    Develop a network by working with a range of clients. Good for future job openings.
    Senior staff: salaries and perks are great.
    I never came across nasty people. Great (friendly) colleagues.
    Opportunity to train in areas where you think that you could benefit. CG is very supportive of this.

    Cons

    You don't really have a choice of projects.
    Difficult to become an expert as a consultant unless you start of as one. You become an expert at BS'ing - but this is true of consultancies in general. Remember consultancy can be viewed as body shopping.
    Although training is great - the reality is on the job consultancy work doesn't necessarily make you an expert.
    Junior staff get a raw deal in pure salary terms - if they are any good they quickly leave.

    Advice to Management

    Benchmarking is poor. Think carefully how you benchmark and whether the benchmarks are relevant in fast paced changing areas.
