    I have been working at CAPCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is for Capco energy which is IT delivery focused unlike the rest of capco. Inclusive culture, personal growth oriented, good coaching for those under senior consultant.

    Cons

    Getting to SC is a difficult in terms of getting promoted into the tier, once there its very politics heavy and quite honestly is design for most people to either quit or be ok with no position growth. Also there's no clear individual contributor path for tech/dev oriented resource.

    I have been working at CAPCO

    Pros

    - At more senior levels, Capco hires "remote" employees that are not near existing corporate offices (NYC, Chicago). - Decent work-life balance for type of role. -

    Cons

    - Partners seem to confuse thought with accomplishment. Slideware is more important than actual abilities that reside within the company. No significant investment in the "new" beyond slides. - All "innovation" is of the opportunistic variety. Still waiting to see how we "form the future of finance" - Project assignments don't correspond to skill sets - just availability. - CEO and President of NA just shit-canned, with no reason given, or new strategy presented. - Majority of projects aren't consulting - they're staff augmentation

    I worked at CAPCO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are many nice, warm and open co-workers who want to do a good job serving Capco's clients and to perform well.

    Cons

    There are many people and leaders with short tenure at Capco, so it's difficult to get traction creating a long-lasting productive culture.

    I have been working at CAPCO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    --The people I work with are amazing. Smart, motivated, and willing to work together. --Opportunities grow on trees. Free training and 10k/ year to spend in education --Senior leadership is generally pretty approachable.

    Cons

    you are required to put in hours outside your project work on "firm activities." It can feel like a lot, and it can feel like a distraction from client work at times.

    I have been working at CAPCO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I came here because of the strong female leadership, the generous learning and development budget, the opportunities for female managers, and the sheer success of this company. I have not been disappointed. I have been here almost 7 months and worked hard, but seen my skills grow. I've been rewarded for my work, and have access to extremely intelligent and experienced mentors. We all actually just went to Puerto Rico together (the entire NA region) and it was clear to me that the company spared no expense in making sure that our comfort was paramount. I get that there are gripes, when you grow as much as this company has in the last 12 months, that happens. The enormous volume has the back office bursting at the seams. Honestly, though, I'm paid well, have strong female mentors, and a lot of opportunity. Personally, this was a fantastic choice for my career.

    Cons

    Expect to work hard - this is consulting. If working hard isn't for you, you should probably not be in consulting. The volume of growth strains the infrastructure. In particular, I think we need a larger and stronger IT help desk team.

    I have been working at CAPCO full-time

    Pros

    As a consultant you get the opportunity to experience a lot of different companies (clients) as well different projects and programmes. Your range of skills and knowledge will became a lot wider that if you work for a company on a particular role and side of business.

    Cons

    Client sees you as a paid bill and works you with a different level of respect and integration. You have to do your day job and you still need to do the extra as part of the consultancy that employs you. Expect very very long hours for salaries that are in no way reflective of what the amount of hours you work. If you seek a career in a particular area it will not be happening as you need to do whatever is given to you. The career progression exists but takes different angles and it's more based on your sale targets - the more you evolve the more your delivery expectation will drop and the more you will be expected to sell services to clients ...
