- Sogeti Deutschland GmbH15.Nov. 2019 (Geändert am 20.Nov. 2019)
My subjective feeling was that many colleagues were unhappy with the company, including me. Many left during my time in the company. I'm surprised by many of the more recent positive ratings here. But it could vary between the offices.
Quite old-school hierarchical structure.
Not much interest is put in you unless you need to be placed in a project. After that you don't hear much. And not much care is taken to find you a fitting project.
Improved by the new team structure with team leaders, but they have a limited say in most matters.
If you are in a customer project you will not really meet your colleagues at Sogeti more than a few times per year, so you will not really get to know them. Some team activities were organized though.
Focus seemed to lie on getting in-house projects where all the interesting (technical) tasks were outsourced to offshore, and mostly coordination was done locally. If you want to develop your technical skills - look elsewhere.
Even though many colleagues in the office spoke no German or had lacking German skills almost all communication was only in German.
It happened that I was offered to a project that was not a good match at all, without my knowledge, even in a different city/country, and I saw similar things happening to others as well.
Improved after the new structure with team leaders (and I had a good team leader). But it did not solve the old structures behind it.
Karriere / Weiterbildung
Not much except the possibility for certifications, where you need to study in your free time, or take a short course (that were mostly only offered in German).
No real possibilities to exchange technical knowledge with your colleagues.
The office is good and shared with CapGemini, but workplaces need to be booked and there are not enough spaces for Sogeti employees. Home office is possible.
Most colleagues are at the customer site though.
If you get a local project - totally OK, except that studying for e.g. certifications were done in your free time, and internal meetings were often scheduled late so that you can do your hours at the customer before. Also travel time to the customer was not working time - even if it was for a meeting in a different city - strange.
Be prepared to be coerced into taking a project in a different city (or even country) with travelling weekly, even if you don't like it.
The inability to get projects locally in Munich with the booming IT sector amazes me.
Sogeti is not well-known in Germany. CapGemini is well known.
- * More projects locally, more technical projects; better sales * Form an English-speaking team so that the colleagues that don't speak German can get information in English * If you hire non-German-speakers then support them in learning the language more quickly (win-win) * Take care of your employees even after placing them in a project * Be more open when hiring that travelling is probably necessary * Find new ways of developing your employees than just certifications
* Good office
* Reasonably fair (normal) contracts and benefits
* Possibility for home office
* See above
