Consultant (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 20, 2014
Speaking from a perspective of coming from an Agency lifestyle, Sogeti is an alright place to work. The majority of the work is going to vary for consultant to consultant, based upon your specialty and skill-set. Additionally, since you are a consultant, there is going to be a variation of the type of client you work with as well. In my experience, I've been fortunate enough to work with a client that is pretty easy going - so it's hard to speak about sogeti when most of my time spent is with the client.
Sogeti does have one of the best benefit packages I've seen to date, especially when it comes to the 401k plan. The kicker is that in order to take full advantage of the package, you have to be with the company for a minimum of 3 years.
The downside of being a consultant is that you can be put on the bench - meaning, your contract with your client is finished and you are waiting to get another client. It's partially your job to market yourself to your managers and ensure that you get another client quickly. If you are on the bench too long, you will most likely be let go from the company (usually 2-3 months of bench time will result in you being let go). Personally, I have never experienced this, but have heard it happening to others.

Sogeti is great if you don't mind going to the burbs or live out there already. Otherwise, prepare to sacrifice several hours of your life every day to a brutal commute.
It is also great if you need to launch your career or make a big jump forward (like leadership experience) because there is a lot of opportunity and options. Some clients are in the stone age and others are fairly advanced so it just depends. Don't get stuck at a stone age place or your career won't advance. Not much Agile here and you will be working with offshore teams pretty much for sure.
They're not huge and they're not small either. They're not expensive and they're not cheap either. It is a middle ground kind of consulting company.
The culture is pretty good at least the parts I saw. People are pretty motivated and passionate.
Watch them on the vacation days or they will skimp out in the offer.
Also, nothing is handed to you here even if you deserve it. You have to ask/demand and prove that you're worth it. You'll get it, you just have to show that you're serious.

Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – August 29, 2013
Sogeti was a great place to work. I learned a lot during the two years I was employed there. The people were motivated, friendly, helpful, and always took the time to help one another. I learned how to work together with others, solve problems, and identity company issues that needed improvement. Hardest part of the job was making everyone happy. Of course you always had co-workers that were difficult to please. But with understanding and talking through issues I always found a way to help employees get through it. The most enjoyable part was getting to know each employee. I am very social and like to make sure I take the time to get to know my employees. Human Resources was the perfect career for me, because I love interacting with my employees and being a part of the company's success.

Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, Colorado – March 1, 2015
Management is concerned more with getting lowest bids on contracts than in advancing employees and paying them current market-based salaries. Good work environment however, with workers able to work independently a great deal. Coworkers were all great individuals and very sociable and easy to get along with. Performance measurements were too based on comparing apples and oranges against fellow employees rather than on how you are doing your actual job.
leaving employees to their own initiative and self-management.
no room for advancement, low salaries. infrequent or non-existent pay raises.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Carolinas – July 1, 2014
Celebrating my 1 year anniversary with Company. Very innovative, creative and supportive company. I really like the opportunities available with large companies. The staff treats you like family and the flexibility is there (especially when you have to move around/relocate). You have so many resources that are free and willing to work with you. The salary is great!!
Only complaint is the change in Health Benefits. January 2014 they changed to another plan that does not cover anything at all. Very frustrating when you have to put your family in the plan.
great pay, great staff/management, great opportunities to learn
change in benefits hurt me more than help. i wish they left it alone.
IT Consultant (Former Employee) – Colorado – November 1, 2014
Sogeti has a solid presence in the IT Consulting market. They provide a competitive compensation package and benefits. Management will vary depending on the location. A direct set of expectations were never explained when new management took over which lead to tension in the work place. Opportunities to excel your skill sets are on you. That being said, you will be responsible for your own placement on a project based on your experience. Management will not be of any help in getting you on a project. Overall it is a successful company.
competitive compensation package and benefits
management, this is contracting work without the high payout
MS SQL/BI Developer (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – December 15, 2014
This company barely have any new projects, too much politics and the compensations are horrible. They do have some events but they try to go as cheap as they can. They buy pizzas from Domino's, or Costco, whichever is cheapest. The most amount of raise someone can get is 3%, and that's if you are extremely good at your work, and a very likable person. Typically, you don't get any raise or 0.5% to 1% raise. Also, if you get promotion, it doesn't really reflect on your salary. You can jump a level with $500 increase in your salary.
401 k, if you spend 3 years with the company
compensation, too much politics, no employees appreciation, barely any raise
They told me they are a project based solution provider and when I started I found out it was just staff augmentation.
Working with the Account Executive for a Multinational firm we, in less than 2 months, secured a multi-million Engagement that will grow by 40% each year for 4-5 years.
They promised I would be the client Partner and then even after the business I got them they said we have to give it to an Indian because he will communicate better with offshore. This was said even after I worked 3 years for TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES (THE LARGEST INDIAN CONSULTANCY FIRM)
A typical day at work for me involved email, time tracking on spreadsheets, setting up projects in Oracle, follow up on invoicing directly working with clients, onboarding new employees, setting up meetings, ordering office supplies, working with Vice President, Recruiters, Account Executives and Consultants, ordering office supplies, etc...
great boss, great people overall to work with, fun atmosphere
Training Consultant (Former Employee) – Dayton, Cincinnati – October 2, 2013
A lot of political problems throughout this company. Know people who know people is the best way to stay in this company. They offer an employee appreciation week which is nice. 401 K is OUTSTANDING! Being on the bench without a contract is a time of horror. You don't know if you will be employed the next day or not. Training is offered to employees but at an inconvenient time. CEO, is not very personable and has a "holier than thou" attitude. The
Your value to the company is measured in how profitable you are to them, and it shows. Unless you want to sell solutions to clients (an opportunity that will rarely present itself), you will not be able to advance your career very far here. If you want to advance your career as a software developer, there are better places.
Sogeti has been a fun work place with a very good client relationships. You have really good and long term projects at Sogeti and is secure in a manner. But in terms of compensation/benefits and growth rate is pretty slow.
training oppurtunity in different technologies with free food and online library access 24*7
compensatoin/benefits could be better, very difficult to get a hike.
sorry for the review being short. The work varies and you get a good salary, but the Health Care is poor and the chances of keeping your job long longer than year is low. It is vary low for new gards, but can be a great starter job if your options are low. almost the grad left or were let go, because there was no role for them to fill.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – October 22, 2015
Sogeti has been a good place to work, but in general isn't a very supportive work environment. They are very focused in this area on keeping staff on the ground - including staff augmentation roles, which wasn't expected.
Compensation was good, Smart people, Opportunities appear to exist (though I wasn't able to take advantage of them)
Other benefits pretty weak, staff augmentation role
Quality Assurance/Onsite Team Leader (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 27, 2014
As a consultant with Sogeti, every project will require a different area of talent you posses. Some may be technical, others may be as a leader or managing a project. With each project I am able to sharpen my skills and learn new things.
