    Pros

    around average market par rates. however you have to offset this against the volume of hours you will put in which pulls your hourly rate down. they have a training university which is good but don't expect to attend as most training is online to be done in your own time. average office spaces.

    Cons

    terrible top tier management. only focussed on billable time. no consideration for needs of parents but specifically fathers. underhand in everything they do. no training generally, learn if you can in your own time. expect pressure to do lots of free hours and burn travelling time. if your managing, expect to have mostly onshored and inexperienced cheap staff working for you.

    Advice to Management

    get a life, start being honest. put yourself in others shoes. have some integrity. grow some balls.

    Pros

    While there is a strong focus on saleable skills, there is an equal focus on work/life balance. Interesting clients, good relationships with both peers and bosses.

    Cons

    Quite a disjoint between the differing groups within Cap, which leads to overlaps, difficulty of knowledge transfer and redundant roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening to your employees and try to bring the differing towers together.

    Pros

    Good reputation and well known so good for the CV.
    Good vocational training and information, almost too much.
    Laptop provided not really up to the job.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic.
    Lack of team contact, particularly if you are away from base on projects all the time. I have been here over three years and still not met my whole team. Some people have joined and left without meeting.

    Advice to Management

    More regular teambuilding events.

    Pros

    - open, supportive and collaborative culture
    - very good learning and development opportunities
    - respectful relationship between management and staff

    Cons

    - most senior and respected VPs have left again
    - few exec level client relationships
    - too many SI and long term technology projects

    Advice to Management

    CG does still have a very good working culture and quite a few very capable staff. However, management needs to be clear what to do with Advisory and then go for it or not, the current strategy for Advisory is not coherent and reflected in salaries.
