    Pros

    Capco has a great work environment, that is very motivating and encouraging for employees. The leadership and camaraderie is unlike any other professional company I've ever been apart of. They have a unique program unlike any other in that along with a global presence, Capco has a GROW program. The GROW program enables employees to relocate to any of the other offices after a full year of employment.

    Cons

    The downside of Capco along with any consulting job is the pressure to stay billable. That comes with the consulting job of just having to deal with the pressure and desire to constantly be billable in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to reach out to younger consultants in the company to get them involved in the higher level processes of the business to better prepare them for the future.

    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

    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

    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

    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 Management

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

    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.

    At least on my current project, people are friendly, respectful and helpful.
