    I have been working at Capco full-time

    Pros

    The old saying, you get out of it what you put into it is absolutely true. After being "sold" to Capco last year I had to start over with a new company. I've had more praise, recognition, awards and opportunities in the past year than I had in the last 5 years at my previous company. The ability to get involved in areas that interest you is a great motivator and gives me the boost in my career that I didn't even realize was lacking.

    I've seen first hand, the integrity of the Partners who have backed up employees against unrealistic expectations from a client.

    Medical insurance policies offered come with a zero deductible.

    Cons

    If you struggle with networking, you will have a challenge.

    There is a great deal of growth right now and at times it will seem disorganized. If you have little patience or require more rigor and structure, it might not be the right place for you. You will need to be more agile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a re-leveling plan for employees who have been acquired after 6-12 months.

    Pros

    Work is challenging but rewarding, there is a strong sense of community in my department and smaller teams have each other's back.

    Cons

    You have to be self-motivated to work here. If you're a go-getter you will thrive, if not, not so much.

    Pros

    On my third day at Capco, I submitted a socially conscious business idea to the CEO of Capco's UK subsidiary, Bold Rocket. Within a week, I was honing my idea with the COO. By the time a month and half passed I was given approval to work on the project I submitted, full time. I was given funding, resources, expertise, and full support to launch a company within Capco. Capco competes with the likes of the big four and traditional consulting firms however, it is nothing like them. Capco's size allows them to be agile and adapt to changing business conditions rapidly. Positive workplace conditions - like a loft style office, lenient dress code, and friendly atmosphere - are yielding an innovative and optimistic culture.

    Cons

    I heard the London office is getting scooters and NY isn't. Also, the mid morning snacks are devoured too quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting workplace flexibility and allowing your people to follow their passions.

    Pros

    Sehr gutes Arbeitsklima und sehr flache Hierarchie. Mitarbeiter werden sehr geschätzt und weitergebildet durch interne und externe Trainings. Wer möchte kann sich schnell weiterentwicklen.

    Cons

    Das starke Wachstum ist nicht für jeden geeignet und stellt insbesondere interne Abteilungen vor Herausforderungen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keine - das Unternehmen ist sehr gut und international aufgestellt, was enormes Potenzial in der Zukunft bietet.

    Pros

    Capco has been very good to my family and myself. If you are interested in a raise or see it as a necessity for you and your family, they will listen. Also, they are open to move you onto different projects if you request it and gain project leadership support. There are a lot of opportunities to show your strengths and contribute.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to SPEAK UP because your message or ideas can be crowded by the constant change and growth capco is experiencing. The action falls to you to promote your ideas and get yourself recognized for your accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start educating employees on how to access those below them and provide better performance feedback.

    Smart caring people doing good work.

    Cons

    Don't always walk the talk, no work-life balance -- but they try. Not all work is interesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all top leaders fit the culture... Take a good, hard look.

    Pros

    Great People, Assignments can be very challenging, fair compensation, management is very open, focus on a single industry - Financial Services

    Cons

    It is a consulting company - be prepared to travel, some assignments will not be rewarding, the parent company, FIS, does not have the same entrepreneurial drive as Capco

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a clear direction and have everyone heading in that direction - even if you are not sure that it is the right direction. Find the few people with entrepreneurial zeal and let them explore. Most people want clear direction but you need to give a few people the opportunity to explore and fail to find the future path for Capco.
