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

    Pros

    Whether you're just starting your career, or transitioning from an industry role, Capco fosters an environment to grow both professionally and personally. Capco puts you in control of your career while supporting your goals and challenging you with a mixture of opportunities. Highly recommend this firm to those that have an entrepreneurial mindset and are motivated to stretch themselves.

    Cons

    Similar to most consulting firms, your work/life balance will depend on your staffing assignment. Additionally, there have been lots of changes in leadership but Capco's core values/cultural remain intact.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower employees to own their careers while remaining true to the cultural legacy that makes Capco so great.

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

    Pros

    Capco consulting offers competitive salaries and a group of younger consultants who are fun to work with. I like the smaller consulting atmosphere because it allows you to have more visibility with upper level management. The bonus pay for hours billed is fairly lucrative and fair compared to some other consulting firms.

    Cons

    While the company use to have several different project opportunities, now all of our opportunities have been limited to one client. This is because one of our partners can't be bothered about selling new work at new projects. One of the largest projects on this client staffs over 50 percent of the Capco employees, and the management on the project is very hostile. Group think, discrimination, and defensiveness rule the day and strife open communication and insight from the rest of the team members. Due to this, the project turnover rate is very high, but project managers' aloof attitude makes them appear like they do not care to lose people.

    Advice to Management

    Rate people in the current role in the same manner that people are judged which come in as an experienced hire in the same role. An experienced hire who did a good job for six months shouldn't get promoted over a person who has done an excellent job in the current role for 11 months.
