    Pros

    In consulting, you can experience working in various industries....if you are lucky to get assignments.

    Cons

    In consulting, you have to move every 6 - 9 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really.

    I have been working at Sogeti

    Pros

    Education credit, high deductible but free health insurance, 150% 401k up to 6% but paid annually (leave before 12/31 and you lose it), ok company culture, hard not to get at least a $2500 bonus.

    Cons

    Salary under industry norm, bench too long and you're let go, bonus program massaged differently every year, HSA in lieu of health insurance. Yearly upgrades either low or sometimes not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications and stop massaging the benefit program.

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

    Pros

    There is opportunity for career advancement, and opportunity to work with cutting edge technologies. Single biggest advantage is "bench" time of receiving a paycheck between projects.

    Cons

    The paycheck is smaller than other companies to compensate for the cost of bench time. The structure for allocating bonus is completely screwed up. Everyone is unhappy about 2015 pay raise, or lack thereof. Moral is declining rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think strategically, and expect to spend money in a strategic plan, rather than worrying about the short term margin.

    I worked at Sogeti

    Pros

    401K but if you stick with company for 3 years. Believe me its long time for this kind of company

    Cons

    Not good projects. Plain body shop. Send people to client side even if they are not qualified. Account executives are worse, do nothing about getting new projects. Long hours and client decides work life balance.

    Misleading and backwards way of operating

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

    Pros

    My co-workers in the Baltimore office were very welcoming and nice.

    Cons

    Everything else. Their operation model is backwards. They stack up the bench with resources and THEN look for engagements. I was on the bench along with ten others for about three months and then was laid off stating "they didnt have any opportunities". This was quite different from what I was told at the interview. For three months I was simply paid $65,000 to watch training videos. I dont see how they can afford to practice like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment. I didnt really get to know management here.

    I worked at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Offer opportunities for those with little experience in the field or college grads to break into the IT space. Training/knowledge base is expansive for those that take advantage of it - although it's all online. Great 401(k) program

    Cons

    Projects are more staff augmentation based then true consulting. You're expected to be onsite at one client for 40 hours - working at the client direction; Sogeti is more of a glamorized staffing firm with great benefits. Forget trying to get experience and be paid what you'd get out in the market - you'll have to leave the company for that. If you come in at a higher salary, don't expect a raise. Not really a place to stay and grow your career.

    Pros

    Company culture is pretty good. The people I worked with were friendly, and the benefits were ok if I recall.

    Cons

    Didn't like the Health insurance (high deductible). In house training resources were not impressive, closer to powerpoints than any type of actual classes.
