    Pros

    - When you do things differently and get business, you are highly appreciated.
    - Talented young people are more than welcome to join the Capco's ATP program.
    - Good salary and compensation.

    Cons

    - Once on bench, finding a new client might become tricky.
    - Some of the domains within the organization doesn't seem to have quality people.

    Advice to Management

    - Please find a better solution for finding billable projects for the people on bench.
    - Please try to explore new opportunities elsewhere in United States not limited to the east coast.

    Pros

    Capco has a truly wonderful culture of mentorship. If you prove yourself to be a smart, hard-working individual who is invested in the company, the partners will go out of their way to help you succeed.

    Cons

    If you're interested in a wider-view of the consulting industry--and are not truly passionate about the financial services industry--you may find Capco's work to be a bit limited. They work exclusively with financial services firms, and the vast majority of the projects are run-the-bank or technology integration work. It can be under stimulating for those that don't care about this.

    Advice to Management

    It would behoove Capco to design a system which better matches Capco's talent and resources with the projects/roles available. Sometimes, people can get placed on projects where their interests/talents are under utilized, which can result in employee dissatisfaction.

    Pros

    The best part of working at Capco is the unique office culture. The strong culture makes you want to contribute for greater success for the company.

    Cons

    It is difficult to feel apart of the company when not located at the main office in NYC. Most events and opportunities are in NYC.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for consultants to experience a diverse clientele.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to make a difference and impact performance.
    Access to partners is great.
    Compensation is competitive.
    Interesting and challenging work.

    Cons

    Benefits are barely average.
    Back office is not very good (although there have been some improvements).
    Over the past few months, backslide in things like e-mail and mobile access to internal systems.
    Some inconsistent messages from leadership on occasion.
    Extremely high demands on time/long working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the strong culture, and reward well to avoid attrition. Resist the pull of FIS to move Capco to restrictive and innovation-killing policies, environments, and support systems.

    Pros

    All the good comments in the reviews are true.

    You can can have a good experience, just make the effort.

    Everything else is just noise.

    Cons

    Again...the reviews aren't all wrong. This place isn't for everyone.

    The petty cliques like to throw their weight around, but they are mere factions....

    Advice to Management

    First: keep up the good work. Keep focusing on what WORKS.

    Second: stop talking like you're McKinsey or a tech start up. You finally made it on the radar, now work your way up honestly.

    Top talent sees you a mile away and it's YOUR job to put them to good use, don't get complacent now.....they WILL leave.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, generous vacation days, unlimited sick days, friendly environment

    Cons

    Merging with FIS by end of this year and have already started seeing lots of corporate enforcement in the culture. The nice thing about Capco as a boutique consulting company was not to deal with all the corporate non-sense.

    Always keep an open mind and be a good listener. Most importantly, be fair.
