There is automatic promotion after the year of the graduate program. Promotions after this are simple if you have a good reviewer

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility
There are fundraising morning teas every month. During bush fires, there was a donation matching program. The graduate community have started 'grads doing good' where we volunteer our time and push the business to do more for social and environmental impact

Culture
8.6
Culture
Graduate community is amazing and supportive. There are some key executives that value the graduates. This is less true for the wider, and maybe international business, where it can feel like you're lost in a sea of managers.

Diversity
9.1
Diversity
The recent appointment of the head of D&I has seen lots of initiatives. There are inclusive groups for women and LGBTQI communities. There is still work to do, particularly around making changes in the workplace and minorities such as Indigenous Australians

Satisfaction

Satisfaction
My department specifically is very supportive. My day to day responsibilities differ every day, I am able to take on more responsibility all the time especially if I ask for it and prove that I am capable of handling the tasks

Management
Managers are very easily accessible and are generally more than happy to take on the role of a mentor. Performance feedback is easily obtained and recognition and praise are given frequently.

Office Work Environment

Office Work Environment
The Capgemini Adelaide office is located in the CBD and is easily accessible via public transport. The office space is open, with "hot-desks" for consultants and a number of private offices for group or Skype meetings. The dress code is business/business casual depending on whether you are at the client site or in the Capgemini office. We also have casual Friday's.

Recruitment

Recruitment
The first step was to submit a resume. The second step was to complete an online psychometric test. The third step was to complete an online interview which was recorded and then assessed (this step is no longer part of the recruitment process). The fourth step was the assessment centre which consisted of multiple activities where we worked in teams to complete a task or solve a problem and were interviewed by senior-level employees. The fifth step was an in-person interview with a Director. Overall, my experience of the hiring process was not great, because when I applied, the graduate program manager at the time was not managing the offers/interviews well. My interview with a Director was conducted 6-7 months after the assessment centre. I believe the hiring process is more streamlined and well-managed now.

Salary
7.2
Salary
The grad level pay is slightly higher than other places with grad programs. But the work that we are doing is not of a grad level. A lot of the time we are doing tasks that are not of a grad level, but still getting paid at the same rate. There is also no benefit to getting a good review in your grad year as there is no remuneration and no possibility of receiving a promotion during the year, and very little possibility after the year has ended.

Work Hours
It really depends on the client/project you are on. Some allow you to work from home once a week or start whenever is convenient for you. Before a deadline, you could be in the office until late at night.

There are many initiatives/projects that Capgemini runs in relation to reducing its environmental footprint. For example, the Global Data Science Challenge (organised by Capgemini) aims to save sperm whale lives with AI and therefore make a positive environmental impact.
