    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Capco is really into happy hrs which provides for a perfect platform to gossip.

    Cons

    HR recruiting team has single handedly killed the prestige and reputation of Capco.

    Due to the nature of consulting, a heavy importance in HR screening possible candidates is required. HR at Capco is incompetent and do not have the ability to properly measure real talent from an average joe off the street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure entire HR team, they are worse than disappointing when it comes to recruiting talent and is a major reason why Capco is doing so horrible in not only the eyes of its employees but also clients as well.

    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to be staffed and put in front of senior clients regardless of experience or qualifications
    Willing to dramatically undersell competitors to get in the door without considering impacts to consultants on the ground or quality of delivery
    Leadership team with lots of experience--they're the ones that helped crash BearingPoint
    New Leadership from UK office not afraid to ignore, ice out, fire, or berate lazy Americans

    Cons

    Recruitment hires non-stop regardless of pipeline
    Poor management alienates qualified people
    Doesn't value people or clients
    Mostly a body shop with little investment in training
    Little respect from clients or prospective employers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. The few pockets of good people you do have left will continue to leave and then you'll be left with the sweatshop you've worked so hard to cultivate.
