Giving back and supporting the community and environment in which our business operates is a major part of what makes us successful. We are a hands-on company, with many volunteer and corporate social initiatives in place. We use our knowledge and skills to provide pro-bono consultations to non-profits to really make a difference in the overall success of an organisation, and we offer a wide-range of other volunteering and philanthropic opportunities for our employees.
I have been working at Capco full-time (Less than a year)
Working at CAPCO has been a great experience. Having worked elsewhere in the consulting arena, I can say with confidence that CAPCO really does have a unique and great culture. The people are open and collaborative. The mindset of the company is not weighed done by the heirarchy of larger organisations. The motivations of the business and people are very much about doing the right thing for clients, and as a result the client logos and type of work really stand out.
There are no real cons to working at CAPCO. It is certainly different to the larger consulting players and thus people need to be able to embrace and enjoy that difference.
Advice to Management
Keep pressing on and hold true to the uniqueness of the company
I applied online. I interviewed at Capco.
There was an initial HR phone interview followed by 3 face to face interviews as an experience hire candidate. The first was 1 hour interview, the first 30mins was with HR, second 30mins was interview with an experienced business employee. Second round was a case study interview and the third was interview with partner.
