Current Employee - Principal Consultant in New York, NY
Current Employee - Principal Consultant in New York, NY

I have been working at Capco full-time (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 (more than an 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.

    A race to the bottom, the story of a firm gone bad...

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to work with one of the remaining talented consultants that has not left the firm yet (only a few are left), one can truly develop themselves and have a good experience.

    Cons

    Once a respected firm committed to the financial services industry, Capco has decided to exit the management consulting market and enter the temporary services industry as a low-cost provider of bodies to banks and whoever is in need of cheap labor.

    The firm’s leadership still markets the company to potential applicants as a place where innovation and meritocracy are fostered. While this may have been true of the old firm, in reality, Capco is continuing to drive its costs down by neglecting talent and scraping up the desperate and gullible for the associate and consultant pools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coming into the firm at this point would be a mistake for anyone looking to develop consulting skills. In addition, the political nature of the revamped organization is truly toxic and will eventually force all semblance of professionalism out the door.
