    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work community. Excellent benefits. Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Capco is a client facing management consultancy so be ready to perform at all times. Senior consultant level and above can be on multiple projects over a course of a year. Smaller pay jumps for promotion than what you would get negotiating a salary at time of hire. Company needs to focus on pay retention and not pay to hire.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company and our share of the market. Continue to focus on the consultants in the field who got us to where we are today.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capco.

    Interview

    I applied online to a Capco position and was contacted shortly after by phone for a screening interview. The interview was fairly straightforward and consisted of the normal questions, salary expectations, and proposed start date. After a few more phone calls I was eventually invited to interview at their office in NYC.

    We were given a case 72 hours prior to the interview and had to prepare a briefing (we were given two different options for cases). The interview in NYC consisted of a few different conversations with different people; I presented my case in one, went over my resume in another, had a Q&A session, and lastly had a casual conversation with a Capco employee. The interview was quite enjoyable and I really enjoyed the experience, everyone was very friendly and quite intelligent.

    A day after my interview I was contacted and informed that I got the job; they quoted my an initial salary and informed me that paperwork would be sent over shortly. This is where the entire process started to go wrong. I was soon informed that despite being offered the job, they would not be able to send me formal paperwork as there "were too many people on the bench". This went on for weeks, and it now has been months. It really is a shame as I did want to work for Capco but the ending really spoiled the mood. At the end of the day it is water under the bridge as I got into a top 5 business school...

    Here's a tip to Capco: don't post job availabilities online or interview people if the job does not exist. It not only wasted my time, but moreover wasted Capco's time. I understand the business cycle and benched employees, but that is information that was available prior to the interview.
