    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is absolutely nothing good that I can say about this place. Do yourself a favor and work anywhere else to preserve your sanity, dignity, and mental health.

    Cons

    Capgemini is a disaster of an organization. When you start as a consultant, you are placed in a 2 month orientation program called the Institute. In addition to learning NOTHING useful regarding your day to day work or helpful in terms of navigating archaic systems for internal processes such as timesheets (a program called Replicon is used for timesheets, which can only be opened in Internet Explorer and looks like it was designed in the 1970s), the Institute was led by problematic individuals who made several racist and sexist comments to myself and other new joiners. You are thrown into a shark pit coming out of the Institute and are expected to fend for yourself and learn everything on your own. The staffing process is THE OPPOSITE OF TRANSPARENT, and there were several people who after many months at the company, had NOT been staffed on a single project. If you are looking to learn about consulting, look literally anywhere else. You will find that you will learn nothing, your ideas as a entry level consultant will be tossed aside (even if you know more than the experienced consultants you are working with), and you will find yourself caught in the tangle of bureaucratic red tape that will completely hinder your career growth. The criteria for promotions are as convoluted and many consultants who have been at Capgemini for years, consistently exceeding expectations on their performance reviews, are not even considered. You will work unnecessarily long hours, even if you aren't staffed, doing menial and mind numbing work. The benefits and compensation at Capgemini are equally horrendous. Entry level consultants make well under the market rate and are NOT eligible for an end of year bonus of any kind. You are given a meager 12 days of PTO in the year, and when you are on the bench (almost always at no fault of your own), you will be expected to use your PTO before again billing to the bench. At any point, if there is any reason Capgemini is looking to improve their financials, they will let people go out of the blue, giving no regard to their employees or what they have contributed to the company. Look ANYWHERE else for a job!

    It is unfortunate that your experience with Capgemini was not a positive one. Everyone who works in our company has the right to work in a respectful, supportive environment where they have equal opportunity to achieve their full potential and perform at their personal best. We are committed to swift review and remedial action wherever and whenever we find that isn’t happening. We are unaware of any specific concerns regarding the Institute, and would welcome additional details. Please feel free to email inventhrtalent.nar@capgemini.com to report your concerns.

    I have been working at Capgemini full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people in the office are great and the work is definitely very challenging so it's good for growth.

    Cons

    Due to budget cuts and trying to decrease expenses, you don't typically travel as much as you are told during recruitment so if you wanted a heavy travel job like many new consultants do, this one is more around the ballpark of 30 % travel/70% office in my experience and those around me.

    Staff Consultant in Burbank, CA

    I have been working at Capgemini for less than a year

    Pros

    Great leadership who will support you , but you will have to put in effort to seek them out

    Cons

    If you get stuck in a project or a service line that does not align with your goals, it can be difficult to switch out. Despite performing the same duties as my peers in other service lines, my compensation is significantly lower than theirs. Very frustrating

    I worked at Capgemini full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Pay, will wear a lot of hats your first year. While these jobs may not be glamorous (think Project Management Office Work) you will learn a lot and grow rapidly.

    Cons

    Almost no work life balance, always expected to be available, this can even include phone calls with the offshore team in India at 11:00pm at night. Older consultants treat young people with little to no respect. Roles can be poorly defined and staff are often overworked without hours being tracked (ghosting). This can cause the hardest workers to be ignored. It really is a place where who you know counts more than what you unfortunately.
