Consulting

I have offers with capgemini, Alight, and DXC technology. Position and salary are all equal. Which do I take?

Nice! Congrats OP. I don’t really know anything about any of these companies. But would personally go with capgemini because I heard about them the most

None of them are good options. Hang out for a good offer — hiring in consulting is about to explode. Be patient. Cap is just like TCS/Infosys/Cognizant. DXC is a lot of commodity work with much older workers, and Alight is in flux. Can you transfer inside D or look at another bug 4? Even slalom or north highland are better options

Be prepared for big time pain at Alight. Private equity that took over is cutting people, pay, and benefits as it searches for a valuable exit

Have a friend who works at Alight aka old Aon. She says they installed productivity apps on their computers that track what % of the time they spend on non-work related websites. Take that as you will

OP, look at Slalom and North Highland. No travel. Plus, I get nauseous reading all the rah-rah Slalom posts on fb, so it can’t be a bad place to work. You just won’t get great consulting skills at the others. P1, investment in tech is about to increase significantly due to tax reform. All firms will gear up to address it. And since you can’t really have tech transformations without business transformation, the other practices will also hire. Speaking for my part of PwC, we are way above our utilization target and we have to hire a lot of people fast

Never heard of Alight. I’d probably go with Cap. DXC is a “new brand” in the marketplace, so upward frost might be slower, and annual bonuses a bit lower. If you’re playing in the IT / Cloud space, then I’d change my opinion and go with DXC.

I know a few people from Deloitte that went to Cap. Might be the same environment you’re trying to leave. Alignt is the old AonHewitt and should have a pretty good culture. DXC is HP and CSC . I worked with CSC guys and it was strictly 'good ole boys'

P1 : “hiring is about to explode” why do you say this?

One where you have spoken with your future boss and not with some dumb manager who is doing recruitment for potential demands..And if you have spoken with all three, one whom you think will get you more learning (see if their background is different from yours, etc).

KPMG1 see SC1's comment about "real Deloitte." Less travel, less respect.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
