    "Trying to compete with the big guys, but failing"

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    If you need a good work life balance. This is the place to work. Had the flexibility to work from home... a lot!

    Cons

    Business is trying to compete with the big consulting firms, yet the only way they win work is through undercutting consultant rates and doing “consulting” work that is in most cases just data entry. Data entry work is reframed and glorified as “consulting”. Don’t work here if you want to actually be challenged on a daily basis and learn and grow.
