    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at Capco for 6 years, I have seen the company go through a lot of growth and I have enjoyed being part of this. The culture has changed over the years but is no less strong and allows for continuous improvement and innovation - which is owned by employees. What has remained consistent during this time is the focus on people and their development. I along with many others have been given opportunities, excellent training and support to develop that we would not have received at other companies. I have enjoyed the flat structure at Capco, the approach-ability of the leadership and the friendliness of employees.

    Cons

    Capco is a fast paced company to work for - anyone looking for a slow paced, hierarchical company will not be suited to Capco.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on people.

    Pros

    Quality of work-life balance is great. There is a very strong and positive firm culture and growth model. Also, the firm's truly cohesive structure and culture speak well to upper management and their leadership.

    Cons

    There isn't much I can write here...Management is scattered but it's part of the Management Consultant world so it's understandable.

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

    Cons

    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

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the Capco culture, taking too much notice of big brother

    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

    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.

    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.
