A Wonderful Experience with some Cons too

Consultant (Current Employee)
Mumbai

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

ProsWork Life Balance is Good
Promotions are based on Years of Working in the Company
Compensations will be Fixed Bonus (Own Money- Removed from CTC sent back to us)

ConsRecently company is modifying policies in favour of profits.
Compulsary 9.5 Hours - Seems like School
Increment is very low - Always in Single Digits
Attrition Rate is growing due to above factors

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease provide proper compensation and increments to Employees.
Do not favour freshers in place of experienced people since they can be hired for less costs.
People Matters - Then take care of people
Results Count - When you take care of people then they will give good results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company for experienced professionals, bad for freshers

Senior Consultant P4 (Current Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsGood technical exposure
Decent salary hikes
Decent onshore opportunities

ConsImpossible to move between BUs like AppsOne, AppsTwo
Bonus/Variable component paid once in a year
RMG is pathetic, they just cant put you into a project, they are puppets in the hands of ADs, directors and BU heads
Absolutely no value, to even a 7+ yrs exp guys, if you are on bench

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it easier for people to move between BUs, each BU operates like an individual company which is bad for the employees.
Employee retention policy is almost non-existent, try to retain good employees, take genuine feedback from the Managers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
