Decent job but not the right career to continue with.9 Mar 2023 - Senior Analyst in CalcuttaRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
1>Pros is that capgemini do give well training on basic technical things via the "CIS academy" which is really good for a begineer to start with. If you do better in that you should be given product training which is also good. 2> Salary is decent for a analyst to start your career.
1>Me alongwith 2/3 friends who did very well in CIS academy trainings and even in product traning as we ranked in top 3 but our deployment happened totally on absurd basis(i.e. nothing related to our academic performance).

Never ever join Kolkata as in job location if you really serious about your career prospect. 3>Even your performance in the team decided by your manager which totally on luck. They can give you better ratings if you really deliver your work seamlessly but they won't mentioning some nonsense tactics. 4>There is no variable pay.Continue reading

Perks of working for a big company (happy hours, free stuff, fun events). The people are generally very nice and care about work-life balance (though that is really dependent on the client you work for).
Opportunities for real software development seem incredibly slim. You may be put into a role that has very little to do with your background/skills. If you have a clear trajectory on where you want your career to go, I would recommend not working as a consultant for this reason. If you are just wanting to dip your toe in different tech-adjacent roles, then this may be for you. But fair warning that you may be asked to do IT shift work or be part of a call center regardless of if you have a software engineering degree. The really cool development projects that Capgemini advertises are few and hard to come by.Continue reading
