    I have been working at Capco Energy

    Pros

    - Largest financial services consulting firm - Dedicated to financial services - Collaborative Community - Aggressive growth and thus significant opportunities - Gain significant experience in broad areas of financial services

    Cons

    - Small firm growing at a fast paced rate so not all support process are changing as rapidly - Work hours are crazy - Potential work on weekends (but i guess thats the nature of consulting work)

    Advice to Management

    - Strengthen access to research and encourage primary research - Maintain flat organization as opposed to the bureaucracy that is being developed due to the large growth

      I worked at Capco Energy

      Pros

      Provided good basic training to Capital Markets and compared to other companies appears to be semi-organized in their business. Has a decent foothold in the London City area and in other major financial Capitals Worldwide. Has good pension plan, gym, health benefits and organized team outings. Fairly good middle management.

      Cons

      Training is limited to the basics. Projects are relatively limited, thus employee exposure may also be limited. Senior management are set in their ways and do not listen to employees, can treat employees with contempt. Limited chances to advance as they prefer to hire experienced people from the market rather than invest in their own pool of talent. Reluctant to promote advanced training and not supportive of individual...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to what employees want. They have more chances of staying if their career paths progress in parallel with what the company has to offer. Take advantage of current talent pool and promote them. Too many people at the top with tunnel vision. Show some respect for your employees.
