    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

    I have been working at Capco full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
