Current Employee - Managing Principal in London, England (UK)

I have been working at Capco

Pros

if you are young and want some experience (basically to learn)
if you dont have another job offer (i would still not recommend joining capco irrespective)
if you are very very diplomatic and politically savvy, you might do well
if you dont care about your reputation

Cons

UK specific feedback:
Worst leadership i have seen in my 16 years of career in delivery and consulting
Worst quality of parters I have met with (no vision or coaching abilities)
out 8 people joined, 4 have left or sacked. These are seniors with industry expertise and families, they were asked to do job much below their caliber and when they refused, they were sacked
No respect for individuals.
Its a body shop and no were near to consulting organisation whatsoever
My sincere word of caution that even if you are offered good salaries, you will paying be paying much bigger prices in terms of sacrificing your self respect and reputation.
Capco does not have good opportunities and healthy pipeline and every diminishing reputation with clients so stay away as there is no secured future with this firm
as a managing principal you may be asked to generate numbers which is what recruitment agency consultants do and they do it much better trust me by looking at fitment. here you will be asked to sell bench forcefully setting your reputation up and setting up the consultant from the bench. if either of you disagree with that approach and dont do as asked, you will be sacked under the name of probation.

Simply stay away. Trust my word.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stopping messing around with careers and stop messing around employees' families. Run your organisation like a Consulting organisation. Stop behaving like a large recruitment agency.

    I have been working at Capco

    Pros

    A start up has some advantages, potential for global assignements and experience are there if the will to make it happen exists.

    Cons

    Processes internally require focus and work. Communication to sites outside of Europe need to be improved. The brand is new and requires additional marketing to be known

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and engagement of sites outside of Europe. Brand building in the local markets to be pursued enabling market awareness.
