    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Wider business and senior leaders are really engaged in recruitment and the value it adds to the business. Those hiring for teams are well versed in what is expected of them when it comes to interviewing and feedback time frames for example. Great opportunity to work with a variety of stakeholders and impact at a senior level. Some genuine nice people working in the organisation with many seeming happy to help...

    Cons

    Management of the recruitment team feels autocratic and communication from the top is poor. Work/Life balance needs addressing and has created a 'them and us' feeling within the wider team. Ability to work from home and flexibility tends to be down to seniority and/or depth of personal relationship. Lacks any degree of consistency. Communication style of management was...

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on team moral rather than an autocratic/KPI way of working. Treat people like adults and allow them to manage their work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training offered, good people on the ground, strong brand. Good clients.

    Cons

    Very lean back office. A lot of expectation to contribute to Capco on top of client work, which does impact work-life balance. Remuneration at Associate level is low relative to work required.

    Advice to Management

    Less internal change. Clearer advice on performance review, faster turn-around of results.

    Cons

    Like any consultancy you have to manage and find the balance between your client work and internal work, which may be a challenge for some. Getting the work/life balance right can be a challenge initially.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Sessions where employees get to advise on the how to make Capco even better were a great idea, and I hope things like this continue going forward.

    Cons

    - Honestly cannot think of any - perhaps work/life balance, but this is something that the individual also needs to manage and communicate with line managers and/or coaches. The occasional late night is generally expected across the industry.
