    Cons

    Corporate (CapGemini) changing PTO & bonus policies. Favoritism is a problem; great gig placement is the luck of the draw which can be frustrating. Must self-manage career;

    Pros

    In consulting, you can experience working in various industries....if you are lucky to get assignments.

    Cons

    In consulting, you have to move every 6 - 9 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is opportunity for career advancement, and opportunity to work with cutting edge technologies. Single biggest advantage is "bench" time of receiving a paycheck between projects.

    Cons

    The paycheck is smaller than other companies to compensate for the cost of bench time. The structure for allocating bonus is completely screwed up. Everyone is unhappy about 2015 pay raise, or lack thereof. Moral is declining rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think strategically, and expect to spend money in a strategic plan, rather than worrying about the short term margin.

    Pros

    For the truly self-motivating, a great company as initiative is very much encouraged, but no hand-holding. Good pay and decent benefits. Opportunities outside of regular assignments to learn.

    Cons

    Almost exclusively enterprise-level staff augmentation work (i.e. long-term assignments), not for those looking for frequent changes. If you do want out of an assignment, you have to raise a big stink. No sense of camaraderie with coworkers as you almost never see them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cheaping out on perks, a little goes a long way with keeping employee satisfaction high.
