    "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.

    I worked at Capgemini full-time

    Pros

    Company has great passionate people. It is a very type-A environment and if you are recognized as a top performer you will get the best opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    If you can't demonstrate, in numbers, your contribution and what you have delivered to help achieve numbers you will have a tough time progressing in the organization. You have to stand out to be recognized. A lot of times that means a lot of self sacrifice and long days

    Advice to Management

    Look deep and wide for good talent. It can't only be the small group that you keep going back to. There are a lot of good people doing amazing things to make the company do well.
