    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Capco offers the best of both worlds, a small company feel where you will be known and able to make an impact, but also brings a Big 5 punch when it comes to delivering complex projects to top tier clients.
    Projects are at industry leading companies. The caliber of talent steepens your own growth trajectory, as you are surrounded by passionate, bright, people with deep domain knowledge and technical expertise. You know the impact you can make on the organization and don’t feel like just another number - leadership within your group knows every employee by name. The recent shift to being private is a exciting step to fueling Capco's growth aspirations.

    Cons

    This holds true with all consulting firms, but since teams are dispersed across clients and locations it sometimes is difficult to come together as much as we would like. There is certainly effort made to do this through a variety of after hours events- social, family and philanthropic. The team looks forward to team wide get togethers as a reunion of sorts with people you don't see on your current project.

    Advice to Management

    More team events would be welcomed...liking your team and wanting to get together more seems like a high quality problem to have.

    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My experience in Capco has been really excellent, over the last 4 years I have had many opportunities to challenge myself and benefit from coaching, this has enabled me to cultivate a range of capabilities. As a result I can excel across fundamental consulting principles including People Management, Delivery Credibility and Business Development. In a nutshell Capco is all about:
    - Focusing on our people and their development
    - Working collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams
    - Delivering quality change for our clients

    Cons

    Capco is a people organisation, as a result the key to success here is building and leveraging your network. With strong support system in place, you can go very far, very fast! Without a network you will lag behind your peers

    Advice to Management

    As Capco continues to grow I believe management must continue to focus on the following:
    - Keeping our people and their development as a top priority
    - Encouraging our people to work collaboratively and seek out diverse teams
    - Seeking quality change projects that deliver best in class transformation for our clients

    I worked at Capco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain experience from top Investment Banks in different areas
    Great company for graduate to start in consulting
    Great for very young professional who like free drinks and socializing with colleagues

    Cons

    It is a bodyshop
    Company is interested only in attracting young enthusiastic graduates to perform long hours for small salary, but providing them free drinks etc.
    Avoid if you are senior/principal consultant
    Promotions are only if you make good relationships with Partners etc.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. You have good sales and I do not think you care about quality of consulting where you have good relationships with MDs from banks

    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Salary is at, or slightly above, market rate
    Office has free soft drinks and good coffee machine

    Cons

    Very reliant on a couple of clients in Scotland
    No USP or methodology - rely on hiring smart people and selling them to clients at profit
    Senior Management do not set good example - favouritism rife and management always side with client to protect revenue
    No opportunity to specialise
    Professional Qualifications not encouraged
    Feels very like a recruitment firm, not true Consultancy

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff and act on it.
    Staff should be number 1 asset of a consultancy, not clients
