Got an offer from Capgemini Invent, BearingPoint & Wavestone, what shall I go for ?

Someone asked on Mar 11, 2019 - 1 answer

Hello there,

I am from Paris and I got an offer from 3 consulting firms. To give you a bit of context, they took me in the Insight-Driven Enterprise of Capgemini Invent, Digital & Strategy practice from BearingPoint and Digital & Emerging Technologies from Wavestone. I will be honest, I am not so much of a fan of Wavestone so I am not really asking advice on this part (unless you are working @Wavestone and unveil that there are marvellous missions there (which I doubt).
So my heart is swinging between BearingPoint & Capgemini. I have both interest for Strategy & Artifical Intelligence. But I am afraid I will not get a chance to work on real strategy missions in BearingPoint as they obviously are rare and probably go to much experimented consultant. Concerning Capgemini I am afraid I don't get to work on disruptive topics related to (strong) AI but just boring automation topic (I am sorry if it comes off as rude but just to translate my mindset here).
So I need insights from people working there (or simply if you have heard of anything interesting!) and elements that might help me make a choice!!! :D Mostly I wanted to know which one of these had best brand name value on a resume if I want to switch to corporate (or even strategy firms, MBB would be dream but yeah lol). Also are internal opportunities (go to some other offices in NY or Japan..) and promotion equal in these consulting companies ? What about salary also (apparently both have really slow progression through the years but I wanted more visibility on this subject...)
Thank you so much in advance for your time and help! It will be much appreciated :))

Hi,

I don't have a good personal answer for you (though I have heard of Capgemini, not Bearing Point).

However, check out Glassdoor.com to see employee reviews of companies. this will give you a feel for culture, reputation, etc.

Hope this helps!
