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

Pros

Pros:

Free gatorade, waters, sodas in the office.

some resource managers / senior leaders actually care.

Cons

Cons:

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".

    Pros

    Enjoyed working for a small European-style company, yet on projects for some of the largest IBs in the world. At the time, management knew how to support and encourage talent to grow.

    Cons

    After "acquisition" of Bearing Point staff, the company changed drastically. The big four accounting mentality was brought in, and it did not mesh with the progressive culture Capco had previously had. it drove many good people away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great partners who are phenomenal to work for, and they should keep doing what they are doing. The BP partners ruined the experience for many.

    Pros

    I was thrown right in as an intern and learn a lot about the internal applications of the company, my managers were super supportive and I really enjoyed my time there!

    Cons

    I worked with people that were much older than me and didn't have much experience working with people of my own age
