      Pros

      Many opportunities to learn, interesting projects, and great leadership. Most of all hands down the best people to work with, fun, smart, and supportive.

      Cons

      Like all companies there will all be a little bit of politics to navigate but it’s minimal

      Great Culture / Meritocracy, Big Name Clients, Small Firm Feel

      Pros

      1. Great sized company. Works will all the big players in the Finance space but is still has a small enough feel for consultants to build their own reputation and become leaders within the company 2. True meritocracy - there is no established timeline for promotion to the next level. I have seen candidates accelerate up the ranks quickly or more slowly and it always seems appropriate based on merit 3. Hands on Partners. I see Partners roll up their sleeves and serve as integral members of project teams when needed, as opposed to just selling and managing relationships 4. Great culture - diversity, individualism, and fun is encouraged and has always played a large role in Capco's history 5. Abundance of training available 6. Management has a track record of being candid and transparent

      Cons

      1. Nature of Work can be repetitive at times (can be pro or a con, depending on your preference) 2. Internal Operations has not scaled as company has grown (Finance, Account, support, etc.) 3. Brand Recognition - Capco has a ways to go in this department. Unless you working in finance / consulting, most people are largely unaware of Capco.

      Good experience

      Pros

      Many great coworkers. Good benefits. Good mentors. They focus on training you in many areas and there's always room for advancement

      Cons

      Must be good at balancing advocating for yourself (both in getting a good coach and staying billable). Being proactive in looking for interesting roles and making friends internally will help a lot. Consulting by trade is not very flexible and turnover was high at times. And it is (was?) a hustle to get promoted

      Pros

      Great people - this is the key for me, you will find people who legitimately care and want to help you from associate through to partner. The be yourself at work is legit and they will help develop your unique strengths.

      Cons

      Its consulting - hours can be long, work can be boring and when projects are great, its great, but not all projects are great projects.

      Pros

      Capco has been great in allowing me to develop the skills needed to be successful in this industry. Capco gives you the freedom to build your own career, focusing on a variety of activities and networking opportunities to pursue the path you choose to take, while focusing on client work. The company has provided greater transparency about things going on than anywhere else I've been, and the people have all been willing to listen and help when needed. Overall a great place to work.

      Cons

      No major cons. If you work hard and take the time to network in building your brand, you will do well in the company.
