    Pros

    Small company where you can really get to know leadership. Great place to build your brand and a grow your career if you are willing to put in the work. Opportunity to get to work with very smart people.

    Cons

    High turnover which is not unique to Capco but rather indicative of the industry

    It's what you make of it

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can carve out a niche for yourself. If you're niche is compelling to the market, you can carve out a practice. Great educational opportunities - both internal, external, and if it's not something Capco offers, they'll support it (if you pass the tests!) An environment full of motivated, smart people

    Cons

    - You need to take responsibility for your career. No one is going to tell you what to do to get ahead. - Not surprisingly, it's a sales culture. Delivery isn't valued. No path to promotion if you have a delivery focus.

    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities. Different types of work available. Similar project offerings to the Big 4 within the financial services sector. Meritocracy.

    Cons

    Similar to other consultancies, there is a potential for being stuck in a project not aligned with career objectives. Key to success is being your own advocate and voicing concerns with superiors.

    Pros

    Most Capco employees are very nice, it's a good working environment, the company culture is very good, you receive gifts from the company, and it also has a lot of good activities that you can attend. Also business is growing.

    Cons

    Could be very stressful if you are on the bench, which means you are not on any project, because you could get fired if you are on the bench for too long.

    great leadership in Dallas

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I worked here longer than anywhere else in my career. It’s because of the leadership. Believe in work-life-balance. Bonus structure is good - as long as you’re on a project (and most people are), you will get a nice quarterly bonus.

    Cons

    Not easy to get promoted (which may be a pro) - you need to already be performing/selling at the next level in order to get a promotion.

    Orlando Bootcamp Grads, beware

    Pros

    +Decent benefits +Almost everyone here is great to work with +Work from home +Diversity and inclusive culture

    Cons

    If you are being hired straight out of a coding bootcamp, ask specifically what project you will be on and what you will be doing. Capco loves to snap up bootcamp grads and they're sticking them on projects using no-code/low-code solutions (the ones I'm aware of are Unqork and Investcloud). Don't get stuck on one of these unless you want skill atrophy and having to be dependent on someone else for career movement.

    Good but needs improvement

    Pros

    Love the company and work overall, a lot of unique projects

    Cons

    Easy to feel like an outsider if you’re not on a Charlotte based project - even if you are attending social events. The pto is acceptable but they can tell you when you have to take it if your client has the day off Also sometimes feels like you’re working multiple jobs with community work. At the end of the day you’re just a number to management for revenue
