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

    Pros

    Friendly people who are always happy to talk.

    Free Hot and Cold drinks available

    Management seem friendly, but a little aloof.

    Cons

    Significantly lower than average salary.

    Lower than average days off. (Although you are able to purchase more, this does not remedy the situation)

    Good luck getting a promotion or pay rise, they're rather lackluster in handing these out, and if you don't make the cut, don't expect a decent response other than "Sorry you weren't successful this time"

    Training Agreement means they have you over a barrel for 2 years, if you choose to look elsewhere in that time, expect to fork out half a year's worth of savings.

    Bench time is glossed over as "Studio" and is intended to help you train in new skills, but all it is, is a glorified queue that, if you ever get a placement, is woefully inadequate for your skill-set either due to the lack of knowledge on your end, or if you do training; you'll never use it.

    Advice to Management

    Feel free to address any of the cons listed, but the big one for me was the lack of proper feedback when applying for promotion

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent career and growth opportunities for those who are proactive, have good ideas and seek them. The people are smart, driven, and like to have fun at work too. The tenure of key folks at many levels is extraordinarily high, which speaks volumes about the company. 150% 401K match up to 6%. Health benefits better than most these days. This is the first year that employees have had to pay anything at all for health insurance for themselves or their families.

    Cons

    No downside from my perspective, but you do need to be accountable, persistent, have a can do and team mentality and own your career here if you want to be truly happy, but that's the type of individual we want and try to hire here for the most part anyway, though you will find some with a contractor, 40 hours / week mentality; and there's room for some of that still.

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

    Pros

    Educational reimbursement.
    Volunteer events.
    401k Matching, but only if you are there for at least 3 years
    They have a bonus program.
    A lot of freedom in what skills you can master. They will provide financial support but not much directional guidance.
    Most the people at the local office are professional and courteous

    Cons

    Most of the benefits are only useful if you are there for at least 3 years. The health insurance seems nice but it has a massive deductible that will make you pay out-of-pocket for most doctor visit that aren't a major health concern. The work/life balance is tricky. It always felt like you had to work outside of your scheduled time. You will never be forced to put in extra hours for the client. However, they will constantly ask you to help around company events and come to all the meetings. What makes this a con is that if you don't do any of this, you will not see any of the bonuses. The projects are a hit or miss. If you are lucky, you will be put on a project that will help you grow. Otherwise, you will be on a mundane project which will force you to put in extra hours to maintain your relevant skills. The biggest problem is that the company focuses heavily on sales. Every meeting was about how the sales are doing.

    Advice to Management

    - You need to focus more on the employees and not as much on the sales.
    - Work/life isn't good if i have to work more for benefits that I should get.

    I have been working at Sogeti full-time

    Pros

    Good 401k matching, but it only pays out annually now.

    Cons

    The only growth opportunity is if you sell more projects for them. This requires significant after hours work since you are expected to be billing a minimum of 40 hrs a week. The bonus structure is vague and changes every year. Management has changed every year for the past 6 years. Account Execs do not last long here, as the sales expectations are high and support is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    invest in your employees careers, not just in making them get Sogeti sales certifications to be promoted. Provide the necessary support to allow your account execs make sales.

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

    Pros

    The interview stage was very easy - not many questions too challenging.
    The people are generally quite nice.
    The salary offered is decent to start with.

    Cons

    Not much career progression unless shuffling internally
    When between contracts, sat on 'the bench' while waiting for deployment can be very boring with little interaction.
    If Sogeti has no contracts, you can be let go very quickly.

    Pay better and use at least starting salaries for each band so that pay is fair!
