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

    Pros

    The internal company culture is great and very supportive of employee's personal interests.

    Cons

    With regard to the client projects, there is often a misalignment between what Capco markets itself as ( Cutting edge financial technology consultation) and the majority of projects Capco actually lands (Back office regulatory staff augmentation).

    Advice to Management

    While a lot of the staff augmentation work pays the bills and brings consistent revenue, be sure to allow more agency for consultants to pick the projects they want to be on/ build their careers otherwise turnover will spike.
