    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

    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

    Usually support most of your development plan

    Cons

    Swedish CEO handed over everything to his COO, COO have Indian background and drives the organization as it is an Indian company - no regards to people.
    Most of Swedish Sales team has been replaced with juniors who lacks the business network and understanding to bring in new deals. Only achieves resources sealing, acts more and more as a resources pool for its clients.
    Severely lacks senior consultants to mentor the junior.
    Internal management promotion has no connection to the persons experience or maturity.

    Advice to Management

    Work to retain seniority, employee real Acc/Sales Managers, promote people to team management roles that can inspire and develop his/her team, employee people that have a good basic understanding of what consultancy is and have a university degree that indicates that the person can learn and communicate.

    Pros

    I've been working for over 6 yrs at Capgemini and I love working here because of its open culture and strong ethics value system.

    Cons

    The only one disadvantage is that the offices are generally far from the city, however the spread of the campus makes up for this.
