Capco has a great people focus - it genuinely cares about its employees and gives good opportunities for development and progression. Employees are encouraged to be themselves and share their experiences with the wider workforce. There is a lot of focus on listening to employee feedback and driving change based on that feedback. There's a wide range of projects and specialisms and the ability to get involved in 'community' activities which can help expand experience. Overall a great company to work for.
A lot of time is spent on performance management, which is great for a thorough and transparent process but could be more streamlined by developing the tooling.

Great L&D opportunities Always lots of talks and internal events happening Proactive learning culture Offices are in a good location
Lots of effort is put in to performance management, but it still feels like a "time served" process.

Only selected number senior leadership member actually care. But 90% of them will exploit you. Working here means you have to change your values, morales, forget being present with your family. If you are person that wants to learn and excel based on your knowledge. It means nothing here. You will manipulated to think
Working for Capco. Awful management. Be ready to see nasty side of people. How they lie to your face so they can get promoted and you will be expected to do the same. If you have family with Kids, they will soon realise how ruthless and soulless you become. Unless you are willing to change your ways. You will not survive. And all you will get is “We are sorry that you feel this way”. Clients can break all the company policies and if you highlight that to senior management. They will blame you and ask you get on with it. Best to get HR involved in all instances, then maybe you will be heard6Capco Response2mo

There's some great people in the company, good learning opportunities, an environment that encourages people to step up and make the most of themselves.
You can get put on a bad project with little control and have no hope of getting off it within a year or so. Management don't reward good work very well1

- Great training - Supportive seniors
- Not the most exciting roles - A bit of favouritism happening amongst seniors when it comes to job allocation

Fantastic team to work with as individuals and ambitious plans not just from people function but the colleagues you will interact with across the business.
You need to be adaptable and move with goals adjusting. Having an agile mindset will suit someone working here as occasionally projects may be paused due to client demands.

There’s a genuine collegiate feel to the place. People look out for each other, people are collaborative rather than territorial, and inclusion is actually evident rather than being a fancy buzzword. It’s also somewhere that actively encourages you to seize the initiative, so if you’ve got a good idea and it makes business sense, then you’re empowered to pick it up and run with it.
Nothing major. As the culture at Capco is strongly based on teams and networks, the remote working of the past couple of years did place a strain on this, particularly for new joiners. However, with hybrid working much more prevalent now and an increase in face-to-face events and meetings, this will help reinforce the culture
