close to a resume killer, especially for junior-level employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsPros:

Free gatorade, waters, sodas in the office.

some resource managers / senior leaders actually care.

ConsCons:

Overall: The Firm is turning into a poor quality IT outsourcing firm. It is NOT a management consultancy, and it can barely compete with Big 4 advisory (think EY FSO).

The new "digital" division is just another facade to cover for tech pmo roles.

Projects: Extremely poor to so-so projects. Most 'projects' are actually outsourcing / staff aug projects (think you're filling in for a low profile role the client doesn't actually want to hire/pay for).

The "Change Sourcing" projects are outsourcing engagements. A large number of consultants are actually just doing testing/PMO for groups at banks now.
The more interesting projects cap off at designing and implementing PMO.

If you are looking for financial services projects, please look elsewhere.

Leadership: Poor to average at best. Most don't really care about their employees' development. Most are just excited about their big payout when FIS fully buys out Capco in the next few years.

Benefits: Great vacation allowance - however many days are "forced" vacation days. If you're not billing, be expected to take a few days off.

Pay: On the lower end of consultancies. Bonuses are almost non-existent, even with a "record-year".
