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

    Pros

    - Brilliant approach to working culture - working late is generally discouraged in order to increase productivity and build good work/life balance for staff. This really sets Capgemini apart from competitors where working late is often seen as a necessity simply for the sake of it - often with no real improvement in results - Great people who want to help you with your career, senior figures are very approachable... and interested in advising/working with all members of Capgemini. - Excellent induction with lots of extra training available - Independent working style - you are responsible for managing yourself and your time. Line managers and buddies are, however, there to support you - Exciting, fast-growing consulting firm using the latest technologies to provide value to clients - Carve your own path: Accelerate gives you the freedom to explore any areas of the company you are interested in. Connect with colleagues and get involved in projects or internal work in any unit or capability. - You can contribute to a project well beyond your initial remit: if you have ideas which could help the client, you are encouraged and assisted with implementation - Great office and equipment - Super social scene

    Cons

    - You are accountable for your own performance, and must be proactive in establishing yourself within Capgemini. This can also a Pro, however, it is definitely something to be aware of - Resourcing model is quite opaque - lack of transparency over how projects are assigned, especially with new hires. Resourcing department and internal CV database is in use, however, senior figures making the decisions often take... precedence over this in deciding who will get onto projects

    Advice to Management

    Focus on 'networking' in internal HR is somewhat ironic considering forward-thinking 'strength-based' recruitment process for grads. It is good to encouraged pro-activity for your staff, and it is understandable that senior figures want to work with graduates they get along with - however, there is a danger that some people can lose out on opportunities because they haven't networked in the right way - these are... often the most technically gifted among staff.

    Pros

    - When i first joined Capgemini everyone was SO friendly. I thought that this was because i was a new joiner. However, nearly a year on and everyone is still so friendly and helpful. I have made some great friends at the company! - Young and fun culture who are always progressing with the times. - The resources at your disposal to learn and specialize in new skills are plentiful and amazing . - You're given a... lot of support from your managers but at the same time the autonomy and freedom to find your own path . - Good work /life balance. - The London office are great, there is a real buzz in the office. - The employees skill set within the company is so vast, its amazing! you'll always find someone to help you if you want to learn new things or help with something. or at least have a really interesting conversation with someone. -Good company benefits and good salary!

    Cons

    - There is a noticeable Female to Male ration difference in upper management. As a female and someone who'd like to progress within the company, this is a big concern for me. However in the last year there have been big changes with regards to the hiring process which is now 50:50. - There is travel involved depending on what you're working on which can be a pain.

    Advice to Management

    More female in upper management.
