I work for a brand of Cap (all same OpCo though) and really like it. Really fast upward mobility if you put in the time and are dedicated.

I really like it here. It's not all perfect, but compared to what I experienced and heard elsewhere, I think we are doing quite well. Comp is like Big4 (at least in Europe) and wlb is way better. Depending on region/country and industry you can expect quite a development in the next years. Collegues are amazing, no up-or-out... On the other hand, ask anybody outside (and even inside) the industry what Cap or Cap Invent is and barely anyone will know. Reputation, even in Europe, is s****. I take it for now and see how things will work out. If it stays as it is, you kinda have to swap somewhere else. If you don't want to exit to a client you worked with at Cap, you need some other names to drop on your CV. While they give you lots of opportunity to learn and develop inside the company (if you can, apply for anything at Les Fontaines, I think even non-Europeans can go to stuff like the Capgemini Summer University - if your company has a castle, you should go there), the support you get for doing anything outside (another masters program, MBA, PhD) are almost non-existent and if you get offered something, it's way worse than what other firms have to offer.

I’m also pretty happy here. In Invent in the US, there’s a good culture and opportunities for training and career progression. Some short projects and other long ones, but decent variety. Trainings like Cap 1 said in Les Fontaines are a great experience and there’s opportunities for international work. Don’t sit back and expect things handed to you at Cap though, you have to actively network and pursue your goals, get support from leadership and take initiative. Your experience here is what you make of it.

I don’t know what to go into. I’m a May 2019 graduate and I work as a bookkeeper and payroll manager for 2+ years. I want to go into big 4 or maybe rsm/gt. But don’t know what field. Tax isn’t my favorite and I don’t want to travel for audit. Any input on what I should do? And should i apply as an intern?

Hi all, newly free 🐠 here. It's a tough time across the board, but are there folks here who could provide a referral to the Intelligent Automation groups at either Delloite or PWC? I'd be happy to share my qualifications over DM.

I know as advertisers sometimes we “bend” the facts, but I’ve been working at an Amazon warehouse on weekends to make ends meet and anyone on here who worked on that new TV spot where they say Amazon goes “overboard” with safety for employees during Covid—that was a 10000% BIG fat fuckin overzealous crock of horseshit. -Sincerely, an Amazon employee.

Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
