I worked at Capco full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Smaller firm, so less admin type of work compared to big 4. Will initially overpay to attract employees.

Cons

No real projects, more of a body shop. Heavily invested in GSEs, tech pmo work.
Difficult selling to clients, therefore limited work. Partners have limited contacts.
If you are not close to a partner you will receive very little comp.
Lots of Bearingpoint people, the same place that went bankrupt.
Old capco had a strong reputation.
Lots of layoffs in 2011 due to reliance on one client.
Promoted lots of people to roles they are not fit for.

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Capco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is a IT consulting company so there is travel involved. The company has great opportunities for aspiring individuals to contribute and make a difference. The salary and benefits have been great because they consider themselves a premium consulting service so they are expensive but there experience in the Finance world is highly recognized although I don't have any personal experience in that area. I like the atmosphere and my management team.

    Cons

    The travel can be hectic and the pressure intense because they have important clients but what company doesn't? I would like to have more guidance and direction and more contact with my mentor but I think this aspect of the company is still growing. The QA skills for the other workers are far below what I would expect from a premium firm. I think they are overly concerned with billable and not actual work delivered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Individual growth is being addressed each year because I that that has been one of the common complaints but I would still like to see more change in this area. I would add that Capco's effort in this area is still leaps and bounds above many companies.
