1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am a developer that develops on web, mobile and desktop platforms. I deal with both internal and external projects working with clients and colleagues to develop systems to make their Business Unit or Company more efficient in it's day to day actions.
I mainly work on several projects at once, and my main responsibilities are client side programming but I am learning both on and off the job to develop a knowledge for server side as well to broaden my expertise and capabilities.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Before joining the company I had never done any coding. I am now the main client-side developer in my team across our projects.
I also learnt mobile programming in my spare time and am now able to show this to help Capgemini by developing a concept mobile application that could win more business.
This learning has been both internally through on the job training and externally using tools like Pluralsight, and even YouTube!
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The programme has been an eye opener into the world of programming and has allowed me to develop skills I never thought I had. The company has welcomed us with open arms and we were treated like full employees from the very beginning.
I love my programme! I love that I can work and earn money, but I can also get a qualification at the same time. The support from Capgemini has been overwhelming to say the least.
4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?
I feel extremely valued by Capgemini. My manager appreciates the time I put in after hours and this is reflected in the way I am treated.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
Very well structured. We have bodies in place for support, we have endless training opportunities, all material is very open and transparent so we can see exactly what goes on, and we have regular calls where the degree managers tell us new information.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
We are treated like full time students, and our tutors are always around to answer questions, pretty much 24/7.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
We are given a lot of support from our employer. We are given adequate days in the year for study leave to allow us to catch up on work, revise, etc.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The salary I receive is very good.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I'm not sure about this question. A lot of the free time I have outside of work I put into study. I want to try as hard as I can for this degree so that I can get the best result possible.
9a. Would you recommend Capgemini to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
I have recommended Capgemini to several friends that have gone on to apply for a job. Although Cap is a big company, it still has a personal touch, and values it's employees above all else.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Capgemini? *
Be yourself, don't quote the statistics everyone knows; look into a specific project, show you're interested in the company and that you want to work for it.
