What is health insurance like at Capgemini Engineering?

Pros

Good relationship with the team and manager. Good health insurance and flexibility in the schedule.

Cons

Very immature in the area of UX design. There are many formations for those who are from other areas and for us not. I haven't received a raise in almost two years and the customer feedback has been positive.

Good health insurance and flexibility in the schedule.

Aricent was the best place I have worked at. It gives a great environment for professionals to grow and with competitive pay.

Experience totally depends on the project that one gets deployed in.

Cons

There might be other projects where one might not get a great role or experience.

What is the retirement plan like at Capgemini Engineering?

Pros

Good work environment. A great deal is expected of you, but in return you get support and a good opportunity to learn. Management supports you with the technology and training you need. Good salaries and 401K benefits, and industry leading health insurance coverage.

Cons

Because a lot is expected, and our colleagues are global, the hours can get long. Combining both medical and vacation leave into one bucket is great when you and your loved ones are healthy and you can take those unused days as leave, but bites if you have more than 1 or 2 sick or FMLA days a year and lose vacation days covering it.

Does Capgemini Engineering offer relocation assistance?

Pros

This company is a terrific opportunity for career starters, as the client portfolio is diverse and include the biggest and most successful multinational companies, it’s a great steppingstone into one of their clients or just having the consulting experience on the resume. Consultants are very supportive and create a sort of sub-culture within Altran, which is greatly appreciated. There is a sort of buddy system, which works just fine. Shames everybody is always leaving so quickly. Consultants usually get hired from their (amazing clients!), sort of headhunting model.

Cons

Company mainly operates on a model of leasing consultants temporary to industry and pharma clients until the assignments end, either (ideal) there is a follow up project or (not ideal) there is a virtual bench, meaning, consultants lose a variable part of their salary and are being pushed to search their own assignment or join internal projects (not recommended, since it includes a variety of baseless “keep the consultant busy with something” tasks), usually limited up to three months, which after employees will be terminated. (Although since years Management is talking about "transformation"....) No relocation benefits nor support for international colleagues joining Switzerland. Mostly inexperienced sales teams, too much pressured on their personal sales targets, which creates toxic and hostile work environment. Generally negative work ethic, employees feel pushed, unappreciated and without any direction/strategy. Extreme employee turnover lack of strategy and vision, even after integration into Capgemini Group Micromanagement is predominant chaotic HR & IT, constant failure, not supportive Forced leave during lockdown, asking employees to “voluntary give up/back” holidays and putting pressure on the ones who don’t participate Taking advantage of the federal job support scheme without any proper information nor support Below industry standard financial conditions (pension, other benefits) Lousy CHF 30.— birthday voucher from an unknown platform with a impersonal message Insufficient COVID-19 employee protection measures, in some cases pretending there is no pandemic situation. No trainings and further development unprofessional Leadership, old school patriarchal management structure with no feedback culture complete lack of process and structure (Lausanne)

Advice to Management

Please value your employees, especially during this pandemic more than ever. Don't give up your best consultants so easily!

No relocation benefits nor support for international colleagues joining Switzerland.
