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

    Pros

    Exciting innovation. Range of clients – but FS focused. ADP Associate Data Programme and other associate programmes give good people great skills.

    Cons

    So much going on. Need to pick battles and prioritise.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more structured, collaborative tools and ways of working. This will drive efficiency and client impact.

    Run all accounts in Scotland as the ones truly managed locally as they work well, the ones not run locally are not people focused.

    Cons

    - Small client base in Edinburgh - Disparity between agendas in Edinburgh and London offices - Management not always visible - Lack of clarity in terms of core propositions and how to sell these to clients - Reduced scope to transfer within the organisation and limited opportunity to work anywhere outside of Edinburgh other than Glasgow - No longer focusing on ATP (Accelerated Talent Programme) for graduates... which was a great way of blooding in new recruits who had not been previously moulded elsewhere - Poor perception of client account in Glasgow as a result of many departures / transitions from Glasgow account to Edinburgh. No clear explanation for others of why or how this is being rectified, just that it has been acknowledged. Results in many not wanting to work on Glasgow account.

    Advice to Management

    - Work to retain people by ensuring they are on projects that align with their career interests and goals - Grow the Digital Practice and start selling new work in that field - Restart the ATP Programme and work hard to retain these people as we invest a lot of time in them and their skills - Get more clients across a diverse range of FS areas - Allow greater flexibility in terms of working across Capco's... geographic areas / regions

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in London, England

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

    Pros

    You will operate as a LTD company and avoid IR35.

    Cons

    They will lie and claim they have a role. Make sure prior to leaving your employer you get confirmation from the client directly that you will be starting employment.

    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 network. Impressive mental health support and openness/acceptance. Lots of CSR opportunities

    Cons

    Nature of consulting, sometimes can be long hours

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing people of all levels to be able to input into the strategy and initiatives that Capco offers.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good client base Global presence

    Cons

    Very political Promotions are based on whether someone who is important supports you, otherwise doesn’t matter how good you are or how hard you work. This will be overlooked. HR deny promotions based on a spreadsheet of numbers and do not look at individuals (unless you have friends in right positions) Competency framework is just a facade and mean nothing, purely a friendship/relationship game. Decisions and... communications about progressions are also prolonged by a minimum of three months to maximise the daily rate achieved from consultants before forcing an exit.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staff qualities and delivery of work rather than social relationships
