    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 an 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.

    Pros

    Only you get salary on time.
    Work life is good as many project on support so no much work...

    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..

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

    Pros

    Great benefits & 401k, fair pay, quick promotion track for over achievers, lots of opportunities to take leadership roles, aggressive bonus structure if you contribute back to the company above and beyond your client role.

    Cons

    Market planning and strategy lacks definition.

    A person who is not a self starter may have difficulty succeeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition for consultants who contribute to Sogeti above and beyond their client responsibilities.

    More solution sell/build/support from regional and national teams.

    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH (US)
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Blue Ash, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    Good for Entry-level professionals like recent graduates, they pay for your time "on the bench", great benefits and 401k employer contribution, nice and welcoming culture of the company, a lot of activities promoting communication and helping others among consultants and other employees, access to every technology you need.

    Cons

    It's difficult to be promoted, you have to participate in the office activities as teaching some technologies you know to other consultants, and promoting sales at the clients. The salaries are good for starters, but after several years nothing changes much.

    despite the propaganda, just another margin-focused outsourcer

    I worked at Sogeti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason is the 401k. Health benefits are great if you're single and healthy. Get a good project and it's okay as long as you stay away from the back office politics.

    Cons

    Very few quality people in management. CEO is a joke. Stay away from the sales cycle. Just another volume outsourcer that claims expertise (that's really just the guy who came to the sales call) and then asks the client to pay for the developer tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Own up to your identity-- you're a low-cost outsourcer stuck in the gap between the real volume players and the niche rock stars. You can't be high value and low cost and still squeeze your people for 35% margin.
