Stay Away!

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsAs others have said:
* Bi-weekly paychecks
* Free Fruit and now DIET soft drinks
* It beats staying at home watching Daytime TV
* Some decent eye candy around the office
* If you really want to stay in the US, and fake weddings are not your thing Capco will sponsor your H1B
* New phones, great for selling on Craigslist!

ConsWhere to start?
* Lack of projects
* False promises: "Strategy!", "Growth Opportunities!" "Meritocracy"
* Co-workers that make you question whether the theory of evolution makes sense
* Interviewing by the client is required for all "projects"

But wait there is more
* A sales team that couldn't sell life-vests on the Titanic

And not only that, but also
* Recruiters and Resource Managers WILL lie to you every time they talk

And finally...
If you don't believe me read the positive reviews and see what they have in common

Advice to Senior Management* Cash your checks before they start bouncing
* I would say invest in talent, but it's all jaded or checked out

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Manager - Ended up Leaving Federal Program Dissatisfied

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Herndon, VA

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


    Pros: Capco has strong client contracts but many of the employees outside the senior level are subpar. The company has a horrendous interview process (multiple phone… Cons: Worst interview process I've ever gone through with a consulting company or investment bank. Extremely unprofessional and I didn't feel valued during the several weeks… Advice to Senior Management: Highflying consultancies and investment firms are a dime-a-dozen. The ones that last long-term do not conduct themselves with such mannerisms. Strengthen your core-management values and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
