Re: Infosys Consulting (formerly Lodestone) - Lead Consultant, salary

Sells mainly to Indian offshore and onshore employees for cheap.

A friend of mine started there as a lead consultant 85 fix 30 on success there but in the first year I don't know how much of it really sticks.

Don't work there but have close contact with them on the project. Offshore is of course interesting for application maintenance, but they do a lot more. In my opinion, there are more experienced consultants with in-depth specialist knowledge. As a result, it also happens that key roles in projects are occupied by individual Lodestone employees. Basically like Accenture Technology, only with fewer young professionals.

I can only say positive things, little has been done about the external image at the moment. But big 2-digit growth rates per year and are slowly opening up for young professionals. Clearly against accenture (management aner also technology), Capgemini, bearing point at the pitch and Co.

For switchers with professional experience, more is paid (> 60k fix vs accenture mgmt 55k fix each without bonus)

Equating Lodestone and Infosys is wrong. Lodestone was a SAP consultancy from Switzerland founded by ex-PwC partners (the name Management Consultants is misleading) and was bought by around 1000 employees at the booth. Infosys has a lot more employees and has bought Lodestone for strategic reasons. Many employees left with the takeover and some partners are currently doing so because they are allowed to leave after a waiting period. It has nothing to do with Lodestone anymore. Unfortunately. Because I could have recommended Lodestone to you. There have been very experienced consultants and interesting projects over the years. I cannot say how up-to-date the status at Infosys is. For the customers I work with, they provide maximum support or host the systems. But there are still ex-Lodestone accounts on which consultants sit. But that is rather decreasing and I am not sure whether Infosys can prevail against ACN, Capgemini and Co. in interesting projects in the medium term.

Interesting assessment.
Which I don't sign like that.

If I now bsp. looking at individual projects from ACN, IBM, etc where entire data centers are looked after, I would be wrong to take these projects stllv for all projects of the companies.
Especially with the multitude of projects and different Topics, industries etc.

If I just take a look around my org unit, I will find topics ranging from strategy and management consulting to pure IT development.
The pitches are clearly still running against the usual suspects, sometimes one wins, sometimes the other wins.

But yes, the founding story is correct and the merger with Infosys has taken place.
Lodestone Management Consultants GmbH also legally became Infosys Consulting GmbH a few weeks ago.
In short: a company with 185,000 employees with double-digit growth

Yes, that's how everyone looks through their glasses. :) I just wanted to correct that Lodestone is not just Infosys. My glasses are the SAP glasses and I worked for ACN and Lodestone for several years and I still have contact with a lot of people there.

What about the opportunities in Switzerland for beginners?
What are the working hours and salary?
How does the name look on the résumé?
Does the merger have any advantages? Does InfoSys or Loadstone let the Indians implement it or do the developers uhh consultants themselves?

Re: Getting started with Infosys Consulting (formerly Lodestone) - job interview, corporate culture, reputation

I can only advise against using Infosys. I have a friend who has endured there for a year and then voluntarily quit without a new job because he was so annoyed.

The Indian management always blames the German manager if something does not work with the colleagues in offshore, although they cannot be managed properly. Curiously, however, the customer attested that my friend had a positive image of the Indian management ... in the end, that was the reason for the termination

After submitting the termination, the quarterly bonuses were suddenly missing. This is still a matter of dispute.

Re: Getting started with Infosys Consulting (formerly Lodestone) - job interview, corporate culture, reputation

Hi,

also here again. Differentiate between Infosys and Infosys Consulting. Consulting pays bonuses annually.

And because of India. It's true that consulting has moved closer to Infosys. But that is understandable. However, consulting is still and should remain a separate unit.

As always, working hours vary depending on the project. But anyone looking for a 40 hour job rarely goes into consulting. However, there are usually no 60+ either. Everything very human.

Hope I could help a little.

I can only recommend Infosys Consulting if you want to be part of the Turnerbund right from the start. But you need the bite and the breath. Salary, responsibility is very good ..

Hello everybody,

Are there any updates regarding company culture, working hours, projects (SAP), opportunities for advancement and image?
Some partners seem to have migrated.

Many Thanks.

What are case interviews? Where are case interviews carried out? How are they structured? The advisor from the management consultancy Simon-Kucher & Partners provides interesting tips on preparing for case studies in consulting interviews.

Authenticity and a positive attitude are the basic requirements for a successful interview. But you can also prepare for the details in the interview. We'll show you how.

For many companies, the telephone interview is part of the pre-selection process for the job interview. Applicants have to convince within 20 to 60 minutes to be invited to a personal interview. The telephone interview should not be underestimated. The short, valuable time should be used to signal your own qualifications and motivation for the internship or the job.

Every applicant wants to appear confident and self-confident in an interview. Presenting your own skills authentically is essential when it comes to starting your professional life or taking an important step in your career. It is therefore worthwhile to find out how to train self-confidence.

Three out of four companies are currently conducting digital job interviews via video interviews. When it comes to a job interview via video conference, Microsoft Teams is the most widely used tool. Six out of ten companies rely on this software. Four in ten use Skype and one in three uses Zoom for the video interviews.

In an interview with Tagesspiegel, Thomas Belker, Spokesman for the Board of Management of Talanx Service AG, spoke about Precire - a software that analyzes an applicant's personality in ten minutes. The algorithm can measure 42 dimensions of a personality. Talanx uses the software to select applicants for the Board of Management and the two management levels below, as well as for the further development of top management.

Clothes make the man. This is especially true in the application interview: with the right outfit you have better cards.

A good third of employers can tell within the first five minutes whether a candidate is a good fit for their company. 75 percent say that poor eye contact, too serious a look, and nervous fidgeting are the most common mistakes when it comes to body language.

In the job interview, it is important to convince the personnel decision maker that you are an ideal candidate. However, many applicants make the mistake of speaking too little about their own skills and experience in the interview. This is shown by the current study by the personnel service provider Robert Half of 200 HR managers in Germany.

Personal content from social networks does not play a role in the job interview. That is the result of a current StepStone survey among 1,595 specialists and executives.

The State Labor Court of Rhineland-Palatinate has decided that applicants who appear late or fail to appear are not entitled to reimbursement of travel expenses.

»Mathemakustik« is an acoustic mental arithmetic trainer that is used to prepare for recruitment tests, assessment centers and case study interviews. WiWi-TReFF readers receive the unlimited full version of Mathemakustik free of charge until August 30, 2015.

Applications do not always convey an objective picture of their author. Every third HR manager (30 percent) complains that candidates give false information about their previous activities.
