    I have been working at Capco full-time for 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...

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

    Pros

    - Exciting projects at the forefront of FS (e.g. building a bank) - Good new UK management that is working on better employee treatment - "Ask for forgiveness, not for permission" ... this is promoted and really gives you the experience you would get if you setup your own company

    Cons

    - A legacy of selling "bodies" rather than projects means it can be hard to get onto the exciting projects - If you don't take care of yourself (projects, promotion, etc.), no one else will

    Advice to Management

    - I can already see positive changes since new UK management came in. - I would focus on improving career development mechanisms (e.g. a project rotation scheme for new joiners). If you are not a networking star, it can sometimes feel like your career isn't going anywhere.
