    I have been working at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    --Benefits: immediate 150% 401k match up to 6% contribution and just 3-year vested schedule, Profit Sharing, Vacation Days, Tuition Reimbursement...
    --Training material available: there's an entire learning center for consultants to access
    --Bonus Program: Reading some of the other reviews, it seems people aren't a fan of it and one reviewer said "you have to work your butt off to get a bonus".... NO KIDDING? You don't say?! What kind of concept is that? Work extra hard to get BONUS pay, above and beyond your generous salary?! Another reviewer said you need to be "in" with the people that rate. Why yes, you should be reaching out to your local management and be proactive. How do you think they're going to rate you if they don't even know you exist? The Bonus Program is definitely a positive about this company.
    --Overall work/personal life balance
    --Project opportunities
    --Client Base
    --Counselor Program
    --Support from regional / geographical managers and Account Executives: be proactive and keep in touch with the important people in your region and in your unit. You will get lots of support from them and will be given great opportunities, as you show you care and put forth more effort.

    Cons

    The only "con" I experience isn't company-specific, it's the nature of business and consulting. There are times you're given short notice or little information on projects and have to adjust quickly and be on your own to figure out what's going on. All you do to overcome that is communicate well and be proactive and ask questions / reach out to points of contact who will guide you. If anything, this can actually be a "pro" because it keeps you on your feet and forces you to learn / grow at a faster pace than the typical "comfort zone".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management I've come in contact with have been very supportive and always communicate opportunities for webinars we can attend, keep us in the loop about what's going on in the unit, industry, etc...

    The only thing I did wish is that we could get more support for are external training events. There's a lot of free webcasts and training we have access to, but sponsored events put on by technical corporations or professional organizations, like SAP, TIBCO and PMI, those are next to impossible to get funding for.

    Great benefits, encourage career growth. If you want to do something they will tell you to go for it. Working with fortune 100 clients. Growing aggressively in Atlanta. Great team of talent.

    Cons

    Not the place for those who just want to put their heads down and work. Not the place for those who want things handed to them

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A stirling and well rounded training facility, combined with support from all area's of senior managment gave me both the skills and the confidence to progress and succeed. Within 4- months of joining the company I had been sent on 4 training courses as well as having spent considerable time with each of the sector heads. Additionally, It is great to be part of a leading company with such a respectable presence in the market and a real emphasis on remaining there.

    Cons

    Whist the social aspect of the company more than furfills expectations, it would be nice to have more of an orientation towards team building days and sports teams. However, that said I know plans are in place to start a company football team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to take the time to interact with new staff. This interaction provides both a welcoming aspect whilst making you feel valued and enthusiastic about work.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, growing organisation, entrepreneurial spirit, flat management where your voice can be heard, always something new and exciting going on.

    Cons

    Internal communication could be better, but working in a consultancy this is always tough for those working on client site. As a result of consultants dotted around the country, you don't always get to see or know everyone in the business as often or as well as you might like, however the executive team does well to arrange social gatherings, quarterly meetings etc.

    Good company for self-driven people with leadership qualities.

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

    Pros

    Hard work and leadership potential is recognized and rewarded with responsibility, challenge, and opportunities. The benefits are good. They include generaous vacation time, health care, and 401k. Your bonus is performance driven bonus amongst your unit and region. You get to work with a network of really smart people.

    Cons

    Every year there are changes to policies regarding benefits and infrastructure, leadership, and general political alignment. Communication from leadership, especially national and regional level, is not that great. Not many people have heard of Sogeti.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solidify policy and shift culture away from modesty.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of customers to work. Lots of them are blue-chip and finance based
    The company is expanding a lot in the UK and there is a lot of opportunity to progress
    There are training courses available to Consultants like ISTQB etc
    Very good name in the market because of the formal testing processes and developed methodologies like TMAP

    Cons

    Sometimes you will need to travel across the country to work on different customer sites. They are up front with that as a possibility in the interview though.
    Also you have be very good to get to the higher levels of consultant because of competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More readily available automation courses

    Pros

    Sogeti rewards stars. If you are pro-active, focused on furthering your career and education, want to earn bonuses, you will. I did. There is support, but you need to reach out for it, they don't push it on you. If you go on the bench, you still get paid as a FTE. If you go on the bench for a long time, if you've been a good employee (high client reviews) they will support you for months. It's what you make it.

    Cons

    If you are a pencil pusher and choose not to shine, you're Sogeti experience will reflect your lackluster performance. It is a true mirror of your effort. If you are a complainer, you will complain about Sogeti.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the Go-No Go for pursuits to smaller companies.
