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

    Pros

    At Capco, you have the opportunity to develop your skills, learn from some of the best in the field, and build your professional and personal network. You can make things happen and realize your goals. I've always been struck by the level of passion and energy of the people of Capco. As consultants, we are always challenging ourselves and looking at ways to make an even greater impact. The company cares about its people and invests in learning opportunities and social events that help to foster a sense of community. I love working at Capco!

    Cons

    You need to be self-motivated, and pursue the opportunities that are available to you. If you are not comfortable driving your own career, you might struggle at Capco.

    I worked at Capco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    What was great about working at Capco as they were up in letting you take cool classes for additional education even if it technically didn't have to do with your current job, for which the paid for! For example a decoding class. They were also know for being very active to let you participate in activities, like running races and playing tennis in Roosevelt Island in NYC, which they paid for! They also let you volunteer during working hours. Best of all, they paid for us to go to Puerto Rico, which felt like a vacation then work! This was back in 2015 before they were taken over by FIS, so things may have changed.

    Cons

    Even though Capco had a lot of Pros back in 2015, they also had a lot of Cons which included supervisors who made it difficult for you to work which ended up making you lose your job. Capco executives did not help in anyway from stopping the supervisor of treating the employee this way.

    Advice to Management

    Be much more supportive and listen to the employee when crying for help!

    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 a year)

    Pros

    There are countless ways to grow and develop quickly as long as you are motivated. Employees have the opportunity to drive their own careers, but can do so with the comfort of having a coach to help you navigate the way. Joining directly after graduating from college was perfect because the training program prepares you to hit the ground running, rather than being thrown into a job that you are not yet prepared for.

    Cons

    Promotions seem to be increasing difficult to achieve

    Pros

    Wonderful network of people/culture/benefits/roles in place. Tons of exposure to plenty of different professional developments (Day-to-day responsibilities, Learning & Development courses, Training programs) etc.

    Cons

    A bit difficult/time-consuming to switch projects if you're on a project you don't like.

    Advice to Management

    A little more clarity on career growth. Things seems a bit arbitrary.
