    Horrible is the word!

    I worked at Sogeti

    Pros

    Absolutely none. There is no work and India is only a backend for them. Most of the work happens onsite and offshore team is only leveraged for validation or small bits of work.

    Cons

    1. Horrible management team sitting at Mumbai
    2. They harass employees to the limit of calling them back to office for trifling matters once they are half way back home.
    3. Some incompetent bunch of senior members expect employees to take late night calls sitting at office.
    4. They create issue for even women taking a single work from home a month, even when they have an emergency situation with their children at home.
    5.Your boss will never respond to any clarifications seeked.
    6. I was on the verge of lodging a grievance and harassment case with the corporate hr against the sogeti Mumbai senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate talent, and come out of your nasty mindset of simply troubleling employees.

    Learn to respect women and enable them with flexible environments. Stop passing sexist and discriminatory remarks in meetings.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the unit I worked in the management team was great. They had the contacts in the area to make the sales. When the new CIO started adjusting the sales compensation and how he wanted to go after sales the unit went down hill.

    Cons

    No one cared about how work was done...no checking on the staff work...also the benfits were outstanding but the company started to chip away he year taking some away..the bonus program was great while under the control of the units manager but the that was taken away and put under corprate....very poor now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CIO for Sogeti USA and area managers...let the unit managers run the units...

    I think the Sogeti CEO needs to talk with the staff at Sogeti USA

    Former Employee - Consultant In Digital Transformation in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Free soda and coffee
    - Great benefits (401k, profit share)

    Cons

    - Managers are extremely incompetent. When I was hired, I was told that clients were lining up outside the door and projects would be flooding in, so they needed me. After 4 months sitting in a cold, windowless office, I left after getting 0 projects while I was there. The execs don't even try to get digital projects, they are too concerned about P&G and GE contracts.

    - My managers had the poorest communication skills I've ever seen in a professional environment. My direct supervisor had a STRONG Indian accent, I could barely understand what he was saying and his e-mails and texts were even worse. He blamed me for the communication problems, even though several co-workers had told me that they were experiencing the same thing.

    - They hire you after seeing what skills you have, then when you get there ask you to do jobs involving skills you have 0 experience with. You have to learn the skill while doing the job, which makes it very stressful and inefficient.

    - Spread their resources too thin. I was skipped over for some contracts in favor of other, equally-skilled consultants even though they were swamped with work as it is, merely because the manager or exec knew them personally. There's a lot of personal bias.

    - Depressing work environment. The suits in the corner offices don't even acknowledge that you exist, and since everyone is in and out of ATO, you never see anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that can actually communicate effectively in English. Change your ATO policies. Use your resources effectively. Don't make false promises to new hires, or you will never change your absurdly high turnover. Get a better work environment for those on ATO, it just sucks. Everyone in that office looked like they wanted to shoot themselves.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They first treat your very nicely.
    Spend time and money on multiple lunch interviews with several people.

    Cons

    Once you are hired the life becomes miserable.
    No over time is paid neither in dollars nor in time off.
    Attitude of account managers become 180 degree different.
    They find you useless in 3-6 months as soon as the contract finish up with the client.
    Poor bench policy.
    Focus on quantity of contractors not quality.
    This is one of the biggest reason of lack of client trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire reasonable staff to recruit and keep good people thru better incentives.
    Know how to differentiate between good and bad workforce.

    Pros

    You have a job not a career. Company is falling apart.

    Cons

    Lack of technology, outdated laptops, no solutions, no leadership, don't appreciate or recognize talent. Don't leave two weeks notice; you will be let go that day. Poor pay, almost impossible to get good bonus. Too many roles for consultant and no focus. Too many technologies and no focus. Run away from this company!

    Cons

    Work culture ; Attitude of people; No support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying more attention to other units than just the Headquarters. You need to move people around quite a bit. The work culture is awful. Consultants are only respected if they are billing.
