I worked at Capita as a contractor (more than 8 years)

Pros

acquisition experience, ftse-50, growing company

Cons

no sense of identity
internal market between member companies
lack of vision, too much hands off by HQ to subs
too uk focused
little meritocracy - more of a club

Advice to ManagementAdvice

bit more organic growth and better inclusion programes as part of transition, staff feel more identity and affinity to their contracts than to Capita

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Cons

    Like any organisation, there are pros & cons with working at Capita. Nothing so serious that needs to be given special attention.

    I have been working at Capita

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere
    Nice people
    Wrong individuals in a lot of pivotal roles (PM, TDA, etc)

    Cons

    Extremely hard to progress your career internally and also get the salary that an external would recieve.
    Weak management.
    Too much fire fighting and not enough foresight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overcomplicate things!
