    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity to build your network, reputation and experiences within the firm through community contribution work - regardless of your level and seniority within the firm. I was given autonomy and leadership responsibilities early on because people were willing to put their faith in me and support me to deliver to the best of my ability. Crucial for an industry that places so much importance on the value of your...

    I have been working at Capco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work is varied and challenging. Often thrown in at the deep end which challenges you to learn and pick things up quickly. Most days vary and require you to take in many responsibilities. Our colleagues are diverse, which Capco is truly passionate about. This makes it a great environment to work in. It is what you make it, you are given so many opportunities, it is about how you take those.

    Cons

    Cannot pick the projects you work on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on diversity and ensuring staff stay motivated and happy, as they currently are.

    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Given lots of exposure to clients from an early stage, and lots of support, whatever the role. Very sociable with a consistent stream of events, both big and small.

    Cons

    Work can be fairly menial at times. Can be hard to fit in training around client work.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the practical training of new associates. Increase the level of examples of work that might be undertaken, as opposed to largely learning on the job.

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

    Pros

    Generally takes being a people business very seriously and understands its assets, what they want / need and how to fulfil them. Certainly they stand out from the consultancy crowd as a good place to work and much effort is placed into this facet of daily life at Capco

    Cons

    “Proper” consultancy gigs are few and far between.... most gigs are resource augmentation and rarely take account of skill set rather ability to get the job done, The meritocracy rhetoric and approach to promotion is evident at lower grades but at senior levels your face has to be a) seen often in the office and be known and b) must fit politically else you stagnate. Client deliverables and hard work don’t bring promotion...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let the broadening D&I approach alienate the bigger community groups. Get the internal tooling and infrastructure updated. Don’t let go of the recognition and reward culture that built the company by allowing politics and “face fits” mentality to take over.

    "Trying to compete with the big guys, but failing"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Consultant in London, England
    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    If you need a good work life balance. This is the place to work. Had the flexibility to work from home... a lot!

    Cons

    Business is trying to compete with the big consulting firms, yet the only way they win work is through undercutting consultant rates and doing “consulting” work that is in most cases just data entry. Data entry work is reframed and glorified as “consulting”. Don’t work here if you want to actually be challenged on a daily basis and learn and grow.
