    Pros

    Travel, learning and becoming an expert are what you can expect. You will learn how to deliver technical programs, stay customer focused and be well compensated.

    Cons

    There are no cons if you are willing to work hard, travel and be customer focused. You must like working on teams and continuous improvement and innovation.

    Pros

    1. Lives up largely to the 7 values.
    2. Wonderful team environment, camaraderie etc
    3. Employee focused. Provides good tools and support to get things done

    Cons

    1. Almost all of the times Capgemini attempts to please customers, instead of calling a spade a spade. Being a consulting organization, this is a deft game.

    Pros

    Great people, depending on the practice, business unit the growth across the firm can vary, I was in a high growth practice which meant loads of experience, good bonus, decent increments in base salary. The organization is clearly going in the right direction although it needs to get more aggressive. I had a great Boss

    Cons

    All the typical negatives of consulting, constant travel, work life balance. Capgemini does not pay as well as some of the other big five audit firms, but still overall is a highly recommended

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive while chasing opportunities
    HR function needs to be more pro active in employee management
    Some of the india centric policies are detrimental to the employee satisfaction

    Pros

    They have a variety of clients and industries to work for, so you won't get bored if you don't like a particular project. They offer good benefits, vacation and 401K profit sharing. They do a good job of having quarterly connect events to allow you to network with other colleagues you wouldn't normally see.

    Cons

    If you live in the DC area, then you will most likely have to travel to your client every week. The forced ranking system at the end of the year is not very fair if you are supporting a smaller project and don't have exposure to more of the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    It is great when the senior management spends time visiting the various project sites to meet the lowly consultants and senior consultants in their town hall meetings.

    Pros

    - You work with lots of different people with lots of different perspectives
    - Decent benefits

    Cons

    - you're on your own for a career path
     - you constantly have to sell yourself for new projects - lots of turnover
     - no feeling of "togetherness" or "Team" - everyone is out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    - Attract and retain better quality CLIENTS
    - Decide of you're going to be a low cost provider or niche player - you can't do both
    - Devote more time and resources tot he development of your employees and DON'T make them feel bad about using developmental resources, especially if you want them to stay
