Pros

13/15 Best place to Work...
3 weeks vacation per year and a generous holiday schedule

Cons

Morale is low and people are leaving at all levels and they don't seem to care about matching offers.
Quality of projects is below average, you are sold a dream and encounter a reality of dead-end projects such as testing, PM or similar back-office positions
Salaries below average, but they claim they offer "Market rates"
"Forced" vacations while on the bench, they call it Quality of Life

Advice to Management

Is Capco a Management Consulting firm, or just a group of Project Managers, Testers and other Back-office support. No shame in that, but that's not Forming the Future of Finance...

    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.
