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

    Pros

    Excellent traing course, great opportunities with world renowned companies. Its helping me make the decision about how I want to progress my career after my two years with Capita is over. I can join their consultancy or the organisation I'm working for, but I now have the confidence to try contracting too.

    Cons

    My first placement was in Scotland. I did miss home at first but everyone is really friendly and I'm glad I went.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going because its helping us grads out.

    I worked at Capita

    Pros

    A successful and diverse organisation with opportunities to cross between industries.

    Cons

    Poor recognition of hard work, very focussed on driving down costs, If you travel, it has to be budget and bus over taxi, which can be embarrassing! oss into difference industry sectors. Can be quite unprofessional environment, so not a terrific place to start your career. Employees are not encouraged to produce results, they are encouraged to drive down costs and extract as much chargeable work from clients as possible. Benefits are very mediocre - they'll work you hard but don't expect great pay rises or bonuses fin return. Uninspiring management, A few years with this company will not set your CV alight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employs more, loosen up on cost.
