    Cyber Security Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I interviewed for Capco's cyber security practice as a senior consultant.

    The interview consisted of an initial phone screening done by the recruiter and then went on to 2 phone interviews with a principal consultant and partner.
    After the phone interviews, I was scheduled for an in person at Capco's New York office to meet with a managing partner and principal consultant

    The interviews were structured to understand my management consulting experience and skill set. Capco addresses a candidate to understand how they would fit within it's culture and how flexible a candidate is ,given the dynamic environment the company operates in.

    Capco works with all the biggest financial services companies in the world and sets up its employees to have top tier experiences when it comes to management consulting.

    The whole interview process was excellent and the recruiters are very receptive and hands on. I had an excellent experience at Capco, and would recommend candidates to consider applying to the firm.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capco (San Bruno, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online through my college's career website. I subsequently had two on campus interviews with two different consultants. The questions were fairly general and covered behavior, resume, past experience, and the company in general. Both interviewers were pretty nice, but were from the IT Group so I couldn't get much in the way of information about their financial services consulting arm.

    For the final round, I traveled to their San Bruno office and interviewed with two partners. The first one asked me a brainteaser and a guesstimate question. Then he asked me what my ideal job (position and company) right after college would be, which I thought was kind of an awkward question. The second partner was more laid back and we talked about my experience and the company itself. I heard back from them with an offer that same week.

    Reasons for Declining

    Something didn't sit right with the whole experience. The company rents their offices from an office rental company to, as they claim, save on overhead costs but I thought it was a little unprofessional looking. There are backed by a private equity firm, which is a little strange as well. Lastly, their offer was fairly low in base salary but had some pretty good benefits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capco (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed for a spot in Capco's Associate Talent Program. Had a phone interview with a HR rep (100% behavioral), then a phone interview with a more senior consultant (mostly behavioral), followed by a face-to-face interview consisting of three interviews (with consultant, senior consultant, and partner), with the final step being a half day "assessment center". The assessment day consisted of a rapid-fire question and answer session with several employees of differing levels, a written case exercise, and a group presentation exercise. All in all, the interview process was lengthy and thorough but pretty laid-back in reflection of the firm's culture overall.
