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

    Pros

    - Great colleagues to work with, limited politics at lower operational / delivery levels - Corporate Services staff - Office Manager, CIO, Procurement, Recruitment - make coming to the office a whole lot mote enjoyable - Variety of roles on offer within two key clients - Transparent, well communicated and measurable performance management process - Real attempts to promote from within where possible _ Plenty of opportunities to get involved in Community initiatives as much or as less as you wish to - Account socials are plentiful and always really good fun - Capco Scotland Town Halls are great opportunity for colleagues to get together when we don't often get the chance to on client site - Edinburgh client account has a good culture with lots of Capco colleagues on-site and Capco are well integrated there - Good salary and benefits - Flexible working (depending on client alignment)

    Cons

    - Small client base in Edinburgh - Disparity between agendas in Edinburgh and London offices - Management not always visible - Lack of clarity in terms of core propositions and how to sell these to clients - Reduced scope to transfer within the organisation and limited opportunity to work anywhere outside of Edinburgh other than Glasgow - No longer focusing on ATP (Accelerated Talent Programme) for graduates which was a great way of blooding in new recruits who had not been previously moulded elsewhere - Poor perception of client account in Glasgow as a result of many departures / transitions from Glasgow account to Edinburgh. No clear explanation for others of why or how this is being rectified, just that it has been acknowledged. Results in many not wanting to work on Glasgow account.

    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Open and collaborative culture, management very engaged and approachable. Overall transparency and lack of red tape is refreshing. Challenging work, often on the cutting edge of the industry. A strong entrepreneurial spirit permeates throughout all levels in the organization. Multiple opportunities to get engaged in solution development and business development efforts regardless of position and rank. Pay is on par - if not better - than competitors. Merit-based opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Demanding work with travel to client site (less so during Covid). Not as structured as some of the bigger firms (relative to training, advancement) so the entrepreneurial spirit and self-drive is not only expected, but required in order to succeed

    Great place to work! Supportive environment.

    Politics runs the office, if they do not know who you are, you do not get promoted, even if you perform on your project.
