"Boutique consulting" Not For Everyone Though

  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
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 has a true entrepreneurial culture. If you are one of those who needs hand holding at every stage STAY AWAY!!. You are joining a management consulting and not a Big 4 Advisory practice so you need to on top of your game all year round.

(1) Pay better than the big 4. Check out Glassdoor salary surveys for yourself.
(2) Bonus structure similar to FS Companies.
(3) Generous Vacation Days. Best in the industry
(4) Vacation Bonus. You get $1000 bonus if you take 2 consecutive weeks of vacation :)
(5) 10k/Year Training budget for every employee to take external training
(6) True meritocracy, Performance review 2 times a year. so you do not wait an additional year to get promoted if you came close the last cycle.

Cons

(1) Since the Capco is small projects are concentrated around a couple of key accounts.
(2) Job stability can be an issue if you do not build an internal network soon enough.
(3) Lot of Travel. Most of the project are in Mid-Tier cities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great Job!! Hire partners who can bring in a big book of business with them.

    Pros

    - Scrappy, entrepreneurial consulting firm
    - Smart, likeable people
    - Deep expertise in capital markets and banking industries
    - Leadership team is accessible
    - If you want to fix something, you're empowered to do it.

    Cons

    - Like most consulting firms, it keeps trying to find revenue sources other than consulting, because that's how you gain a predictable revenue stream
    - Doesn't have the infrastructure of a big consulting firm (which is also a plus)
    - Low brand recognition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to Gen-X and Gen-Y about how staff expectations are changing. You don't have to agree with or implement everything they're asking for, but you should know where they're coming from.
    - Remind recruits over and over that there is up to 100% travel involved in this business.
