    Pros

    - some real people working for the company - good hq in shoreditch - personal development / training is great

    Cons

    - promotion is all about who you know - very political - completely lied and oversold the role - there was no real work in the Capco for 6 months. people were on the bench for at least 2 months trying to find work - little to know interesting projects - no one gets rewarded for their work - senior management has little understanding of the culture

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Great senior management team (Digital & Tech Department) who are incredibly bought in to the recruitment team and genuinely care about finding the right candidates for the business. Hiring managers are happy to set time aside to teach and educate you on the specific areas of which you are recruiting - rare in many companies. Lots of opportunities to learn about the industry and teams that you are recruiting...

    Cons

    The recruitment team itself is heavily KPI focused and run almost identically to a recruitment agency (most who join the team want to get out of this type of environment). Expectations set to work late after work to run recruitment evenings (8/9PM) with no time back. (In interview process told once a month however was often 5 times per month) No working from home is considered unless a formal request is put forward....

    Thank you for your feedback. As a recruitment function, we are always looking for ways to enhance the team environment. As part of this, we recently reviewed our recruitment evenings, and now only run these on an ad-hoc basis if we have a particular need. As a result of changing the ...

    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...

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

    Pros

    - Approachable senior management - Provides ability to work with clients and gain hands-on experience - Opportunity to work on high profile accounts and Financial services clients - Platform to practice and build SME skills - Right balance of formal and informal environment - Real time feedback and recognition from Performance and Line Managers - Great teams made up of amazing people leading to life long friendships

    Cons

    I have not come across any cons of working at Capco. Inspite of the great growth that the Capco has witnessed, it is great to see and witness that the senior management is still invested to ensure that the Company culture is maintained and reinforced in all employees and new joiners.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue with what you are doing, it is definitely working and I would recommend Capco to anyone who is looking to work in Financial services and accelerate their career

    Pros

    Free soft drinks in HQ office Good as a entry level position for those with no experience

    Cons

    Promotion is based on popularity rather than actual delivery of work , emphasis is placed on attending a lot of socials. Senior Management Partner egos Inexperienced staff promoted too quickly (based on popularity rather than work) creating an inexperienced management hierarchy . There are graduates with no experience managing / at a senior level compared to some experienced...

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management (not all) should leave Egos at home Party culture takes prominence rather than delivery and employee progression / support. This needs to change Recruit quality not quantity

    We are disappointed by this feedback but have sought to respond to reach of the points you raise. 1. Promotions at Capco are based on the quality of the work you deliver, not on popularity. The foundation of any promotion is a sustained high performance rating which is dependent ...

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

    Pros

    The Associate Talent Programme (ATP) is not a "grad scheme" as such - it's not just open to graduates but offers an entry-level consulting job. This is what I found so interesting at the start, I joined not just with other graduates but people with all different backgrounds and experience! The short, sharp training that I began with offers me a good level of knowledge in the basics of consulting along with a comprehensive...

    Cons

    Some of the benefits offered aren't as broad as larger corporate firms (however this is somewhat made up for in the competitive graduate salary)

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people - all the events that go on at Capco are a great way of bringing the firm together and meeting your colleagues!

    Pros

    I have been working for Capco for 3 years and so far have had a great experience. The senior management team create a culture that is inclusive and supportive, and have maintained this even though the company is going through a huge growth spurt. Training is excellent and readily available. There is an active coaching community and the recognition process is fair and transparent. Projects I have worked on...

    Cons

    As the company grows the existing performance management process is taking up a huge amount of resources and time to complete, and therefore needs to to be reviewed for streamlining where possible. I can already see improvements in this area however. Internal services such as technical support need to grow inline with the growth of the business in order to continue to adequately support.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the Capco culture and celebrating success!
