    Pros

    Set hours, 9-5 - allows for reasonable social life

    Can be challenging if you want it to be!
    Generally nice people to work with
    Enthusiastic and friendly team leaders/management

    Cons

    No particularly good company benefits offered, just the basics
    You will always find some people difficult to work with but its part of having a job
    No travel perks for using public transport which would have been great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the staff happy and the work place will certainly maintain a positive atmosphere which is good for keeping your trained colleagues!

    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.

    Pros

    Client placements on Novus programme. Been working on impressive brand names. Capita are behind the scenes of most large corporations.

    Training received was fantastic. Now more qualified what my degree gave me. University does not set you up for a working career in IT. Uni degrees are way behind on technology and practices. Capita however got me up to speed, although was hard work as taught to a very professional level.

    Cons

    large company, so can feel lost.
    have to work hard, but you are supported

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
