    Horrible is the word!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Not that good

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Bangalore
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Bangalore

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

    Pros

    Latest .Net technology to work with in some accounts, Good Initial salary.

    Cons

    Senior management keeps changing. Low salary hikes. Extremely difficult(read made impossible by managers who engage in BU level politics) to change projects even after completing mandatory period of 18 months in a project. Not aligned to capgemini at all. So Project change won't happen even if better opportunities available in other BU.
    It's mainly driven by Outsourcing employees to client locations. Join capgemini but stay away from Sogeti USA BU at bangalore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to retain talent. Provide them good onsite opportunities (read 2+ year) after they have spent some time, instead of engaging at BU level politics.

    Cons

    many ..... few of them are given below
    1 Worst management
    2 all the projects are on support ... so no more to gain the knowledge.
    3 no onsite travel.
    4 extremely worst for the people for those who does not work on .Net
    5 Maximum head count for a project is 20 to 25 ... hence no vertical growth.

    I have been working at Sogeti

    Pros

    1. Resource gets oppurtunity right from project to pre-sales and client facing options
    2. Few best managers still exists in Mumbai office

    Cons

    1. Management Politics in Sogeti India - PLS TAKE A STEP, before you lose your valuable, loyal employees
    2. High level un-professionalism and buttering policy applies
    3. Management pls do something for this..
    4. They say they follow open door policy, but common... Managers cant be approached.. Especially the big boss of Sogeti USA. Need to grow up and handle resource properly.
    5. English is still not the official language in Sogeti Mumbai office, please stop this baised favorism
    6. India CEO is excellent and has immense potential to outstand Sogeti India, so please focus on your valuable and loyal employees.
    I had a hard time till date to prove my potential, before I start degrading my potentials and capabilities, time for me to quit. Sogeti will lose one trustworthy and sincere resource..

    Pros

    Healthcare is high deductible, but there is no premium. Fantastic 401k, just make sure you stay for 3 years. Additionally, they set aside 12k a year (per consultant) for tuition reimbursement - Masters degree, certifications, trainings, etc...

    Salary is competitive. Great job for recent grads especially.

    Cons

    401k takes 3 years to vest. High deductible insurance. Some clients just plain suck. Sometimes there is a lack of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a consultant is doing staff aug work, and they are unhappy, please work your hardest to find a new role.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Sogeti does a good job hiring talented people. You can definitely set your own career path and achieve your goals. 401K matching is about the best I've ever seen and often employees are given profit sharing through an added bump into our 401K accounts. The clients and projects are interesting and Sogeti works hard to support delivery. There is a strong focus on providing client delight and much talk is given around creating solutions over transactional, staff augmentation work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the great intentions do not always come to fruition in practice. They will take staff augmentation work to keep people billing, but it definitely takes away from the opportunity to do true consulting work. Decisions are made hastily at times and it feels like the kitchen keeps getting rearranged. There are a lot of short sighted decisions being made instead of lasting strategy implementation. The bonus structure is revamped every year, and they are quick to point out how much better it will be for the consultant, then a month or two later the bonus tiers are reset back to what it was originally and this is creating a great deal of frustration among the consultants. It also affects morale, as the bonus is strongly connected to billable rates which the consultant has no control over. The rates are negotiated by the Account Execs who make their money regardless. If you are put on a project that is in trouble, you are punished by working to fix it, because by the time you get there, the project is a financial loser and your bonus suffers. This is a deplorable way to deliver bonuses, and it sends a powerful message to the consultants that I do not think is intended. Further, the messaging around all of this is terrible. Lastly, vacation time is not aligned with career experience. When bringing in new managers/senior managers and higher, they start everyone with the same offering and one must build tenure within. This is a detractor for those that have already achieved more personal time off. It impacts work/life balance as well, as senior leadership is expected to maintain a fulltime set of duties and are also mandated to bill a set amount of hours on top of that. They only give 7 days for holidays and they do not float, so it makes it difficult to follow the client's schedule, and quite honestly, 7 days per year is bad anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your messaging right. Do not make promises or announce changes and then not follow through. Reconsider your time off policies and the way you deliver bonuses.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Health insurance is included, regardless of whether you're single or are married and have 8 kids.

    Decent starting salary coming out of college

    Nice 401k matching (150% of up to 6%)

    Cons

    High deductible health insurance

    Bonus program isn't very good

    3 full years to get any 401k/profit sharing

    May get stuck on a project that doesn't have anything to do with your career goals
