I worked at Capco full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Still has many quality people to work with, growing, good international presence, focus on Financial Services provides advantages. High quality clients.

Cons

Significant dilution of talent and focus after acquisition of many former Bearing Point personnel and sale/partnership with FIS. Significant politics due to Capco v Bearing Point management and executives.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at Capco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People care, focused more on people than metrics, meritocracy. You can grow as fast as you can demonstrate your capability and value. Diversity is a fact of life rather than an initiative.

    Cons

    not enough client diversification, reliance on a couple of big clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More investment in learning -- and make sure people get to attend. You're only as good as your people.

    Cons

    - Billable projects are poor in quality and quantity; this is HUGE for a consulting firm
    - Area of work within financial services is not as advertised before signing with firm
    - Area of work within financial services is not where largest profits are made
    - Salary is moderately to significantly less in comparison to equivalent position at competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Need many more billable projects in middle and front office
    - Length of billable contracts need to be MUCH longer in length
