    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.

    Pros

    I've worked at Capco for 2 years. The people are fun an have an amazing can do attitude. The company is engaging and people are generally happy with their work and their client interactions. Benefits are great! Pay is great!

    Cons

    The supporting functions are great people but I don't think they are as valued as they could be. Also, there is zero guidance from management about where the business is going. It still functions but we could be a better machine and more competative

    Great if you're in your 20s, fantastic place to learn about the industry, approachable people at all levels

    Not alot, but need to stay clear of BAU roles, not really consulting. Owned by FIS but no major initiative for mobility across the different companies. All about billabilty

    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    The people and culture are great! The work is challenging and rewarding. Loved the work schedule - Mon - Thurs (4 - 10s).

    Cons

    The pay was low but I guess was comparable for the area. The work station was constantly changing which caused disruption in getting work done.

    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 recently been limited to a few clients. This is because some of our partners have a difficult time selling new work at new clients. One of the largest projects on one of our clients staffs a lot of 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 1-2 years.

    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.
