The biggest con is the 9.5 hours log in time. Its not just capgemini all other companies have it too. But being a women its very hard to stick to such timeline. Plus there are no stuck leaves, only the 22 yearly privilege leaves. These are general things. Apart from this a lot depends on the project and the team you get.']
The work life balance and flexibility depends completely on the project manager. Most of the projects work in the 11 to 8 or 12 to 9 schedule which, becomes difficult when you are a mother. However, some Managers would let you to login from home.
The situation may have changed now after the acquisition of IGate. I left Capgemini before the acquisition.
It mostly depends on the project and on the location as well, but few things are very common across all is -
No work from home facility
No special concession during ladies bad days
No fixed office hours for the ladies.
Drop of the ladies employees depends on project whether they will approve it or no.
Very very dirty politics all around the work place.
It's a good company for career growth learning perspective. Micro management is not done, however completing 9 hours in mandatory. Managers are good, they respect the resources and give freedom in work. Work culture is really good in Capgemini.
Regarding female friendliness, Capgemini doesn't distinguish between male and female employees.
They have very flexible policies to WFH or split working hours to make them comfortable.
I do not see any cons as such provided you have a nice Manager else company has very good policies for women employees.
There is creche facility for kids in company campus.
Theres an Apolo medical shop in campus also super market by Reliance fresh. Good food facility.
Workwise there are many projects to work with clients from different locality.
Based on client you will have your working shift. For eg if its from eastern countries then that will be a regular shift of 9.5 hrs. Or if its from western countries then you will start late and leave late due to time difference but with fixed 9.5 hr shift. But this can be adjusted by having small discussion with manager if you have any problems with work timings.
CG has good work environment and provides average compensation.
They also arrange some events for kids including fun activities and medical camps.
CG has their own transport, so taking kids with us to creche is not so difficult.
