    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.

    As most of consulting companies, you got go where the client is. That can demand more and more travel, what might not be ideal depending on your lifestyle.

    Pros

    Peers are friendly. Culture is pretty good. You need to enjoy travel.

    Cons

    Project managers tend to aggressively set timelines so long hours are common

    Advice to Management

    Execs at the top always say not to "ghost" hours, but project managers will push things so that working those extra hours are necessary to get all the work done. This needs to be fixed.
