    I worked at Capco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Quick turnaround on project placement (woth little choice if a client requests you mind). Large organisation, well known.

    Cons

    HR will feed you all sorts to keep you on minimal pay. Bonus and yearly raises V poor. Minimal increases. Delivery with Clients is always second to politics, e.g when considering internal promotions. Heavy focus on social outings (as with most consultancy’s)

    Capco Response

    June 11, 2018HR

    We would like to respond to the points you raise in your review: 1. Your comments on salary and bonus are incorrect and at odds with many of the reviews on this forum. Our bonuses in March typically delivered 10-15% - for our highest performers, some received payments of 20% plus for exceptional performance. Our promotion increases are also generous and we regularly benchmark our compensation in the market, including against the Big 4, to ensure that we remain competitive. 2. Capco is a meritocracy. Our performance management process promotes a holistic view of performance. All rating and promotion decisions are based on feedback from key stakeholders and hard business measures, and validated in roundtable discussions where challenge and debate are encouraged. 3. The firm hosts a variety of employee events including town halls, industry-specific events, summer parties and CSR events. All events held outside working hours are optional and many employees joining Capco enjoy the variety of events on offer which help them to develop their knowledge, build their network and have fun with their colleagues. We are disappointed to hear that you feel this way as a current employee and would strongly encourage you to speak with your coach, manager, HR or a member of the leadership team to discuss your specific concerns.

    "Capco is a great example of a small low quality outfit poorly managed"

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

    Pros

    It's hard to find positives in relation to my experience with Capo. During my time at the firm they hired a lot of people, many of these left after being deployed into roles that in many cases were just resource augmentation, a bit like a expensive contracting agency. In reality the main pro is that as this is a small firm they don't hold a large pool of people and thus you will be deployed onto a project quickly, unfortunately the roles are often a poor fit as they are driven by client demand rather than your skills and capabilities

    Cons

    The main con that I would highlight is the poor quality of management and leadership at Capco. Most of the leadership team are completely disconnected from the work force, they are very unable to understand the needs of their people and this is demonstrated by the number of people who join the firm and then leave within 12 months. I have worked in a number of industry and consulting jobs and I have never seen such a large turnover of staff, and I believe this is related to the very poor quality of both leadership and development. Training is of very poor quality , largely focused on induction / initial training and this fails to provide any form of ongoing development In summary you would really be better off as a contractor!

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

    Pros

    Decent salary, benefits and vacation, some decent people but only a few.

    Cons

    One of the worst places to work where favouritism is rampant and if you are on the bench, then get ready to be fired. People backstab on a regular basis and when I was let go, I was asked to sign a gag order. What a joke!

    Pros

    Still has many quality people to work with, growing, good international presence, focus on Financial Services provides advantages. High quality clients.

    Cons

    Significant dilution of talent and focus after acquisition of many former Bearing Point personnel and sale/partnership with FIS. Significant politics due to Capco v Bearing Point management and executives.
