    I worked at CAPCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are amazing, I worked with some majorly talented individuals
    Culture is young, fresh, forward thinking and vibrant
    Good pay

    Cons

    Promotion politics, - those who shout loudest tend to win - and they have a lot of ex Accenture people shouting so if you are part of the club then you are fine

    Advice to Management

    People are leaving and there is no retention measures in place - stop losing talent and help reduce turnover to a more manageable level

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CAPCO (London, England) in February 2015.

    Interview

    -online questions: why capco,how should we focus on, what makes you a good consultant
    -video interview: why capco, successful teamwork, role of technology in the financial services
    -assessment centre: 40 people, intake of 4.
    (1) test: easy. Simple numerical questions, plus spotting language mistakes in paragraphs.
    (2) spaghetti challenge: 4 teams of 3 people. Build the highest tower using spaghetti and jellybabies.
    (3) group case study: 8 people team. You have 30 minutes to read 3 pages on the case study, come up with a group strategy, and present it to Capco partners. Do not underestimate people's hurry: it is contagious. Nobody had really understood the content of the 3 pages, when we started discussing.
    (4) speed dating interview: 5 consultants, rotate and have 5 minutes with each of them. It is the only one-on-one bit of the AC. Do not assume they read your Cv/cover letter, because they most likely have not.

    Overall it's relatively informal, friendly and quick (only 2.5 hours).
