    I worked at CAPCO full-time for 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

    I have been working at CAPCO

    Pros

    Good location and office is nice.

    Cons

    Lack of skilled staff, honesty and integrity

    Advice to Management

    Don't join this company, its flawed, full of 'cliques', no work like balance and HR tell lies just to get you through the door. It might have the aesthetics, but in reality an empty soul less shell.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at CAPCO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Likes young people so if you are unable to get into consulting anywhere else .. maybe this will atleast get you started..

    Cons

    - Highly political with very low calibre partnership - Very whimsical in people management and can hire-fire due to lack of projects - Low quality deliverables and mainly do body shopping

    Advice to Management

    - Do not hire if you cannot nurture talent... - Win some proper consulting work rather than body shopping..

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at CAPCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is for Capco energy which is IT delivery focused unlike the rest of capco. Inclusive culture, personal growth oriented, good coaching for those under senior consultant.

    Cons

    Getting to SC is a difficult in terms of getting promoted into the tier, once there its very politics heavy and quite honestly is design for most people to either quit or be ok with no position growth. Also there's no clear individual contributor path for tech/dev oriented resource.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to keep tech resources. With no technical foundation more and more project are going to fail because the goal becomes closing sales rather then delivering quality projects.

    I have been working at CAPCO

    Pros

    - At more senior levels, Capco hires "remote" employees that are not near existing corporate offices (NYC, Chicago). - Decent work-life balance for type of role. -

    Cons

    - Partners seem to confuse thought with accomplishment. Slideware is more important than actual abilities that reside within the company. No significant investment in the "new" beyond slides. - All "innovation" is of the opportunistic variety. Still waiting to see how we "form the future of finance" - Project assignments don't correspond to skill sets - just availability. - CEO and President of NA just... shit-canned, with no reason given, or new strategy presented. - Majority of projects aren't consulting - they're staff augmentation

    Advice to Management

    - State actual reasons senior management was given the boot. - State actual strategy for company beyond "we're great!"

    "Capco culture looks better from the outside"

    I worked at CAPCO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are many nice, warm and open co-workers who want to do a good job serving Capco's clients and to perform well.

    Cons

    There are many people and leaders with short tenure at Capco, so it's difficult to get traction creating a long-lasting productive culture.

    Advice to Management

    At this time, I do not have any advice for management. I have no idea who is there any more. Best of luck to Capco.
