1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
SAP Materials Management Application Consultant. On a day to day basis I manage the progression of changes in SAP through tasks, using support tools like ITSM.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Yes. I have been given training all the time and learned a lot. I was put on a 6 week training course in India to learn SAP MM. I have learned a lot of SAP around materials management
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoyed the program, but enjoyed the job more. The program was QA heavy and sometimes I felt like I was doing it for doing it sake but I enjoyed the work.
4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?
I feel valued at Capgemini. The only issue is I joined at Advanced level and I watch Higher apprentices progress quicker whilst still doing the same amount of work. Its frustrating but its down to the program I assigned up to.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The program was structure and we had someone come in and guide us through the process. We was delegated QA work at an even pace. The programe was organised well just sometimes things we're put on us a bit short notice
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Reasonable amount. He did it for a lot of people so he was difficult to get a quick answer. Sometimes it took a week or more to get a response and because he was outside of Capgemini, he was harder to reach.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
The employer (my team) provide me with a lot of support. Capgemini are a well structured company built to help you progress and achieve but also to help you if your struggling with something.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My costs are covered in terms of petrol. Living away from home is also paid for which is good. My salary is competitive but not stand out. But Im still young so plenty of years for that to improve.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Projects I've been on have events where we meet up and socialize, and are rewarded for our efforts. There are Christmas events again for socializing. We have meetings usually quarterly with top bosses about progression in Capgemini etc.
9a. Would you recommend Capgemini to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Really good company who value their employees. Plenty of opportunity to progress and improve your skills. Training is paid for, the degree they offer is paid for and opportunities to travel and work away from home, expenses paid for.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Capgemini? *
Capgemini are a global company. So there are opportunities to work abroad. But most importantly you need to be open about travelling around the UK and as mentioned before it'll be covered by expenses but Capgemini work from client sites aswell as there own on lots of projects. A project could have you travel down to london or up to newcastle. it really depends where the project is located.
