    Pros

    - Great people culture
    - Pay and vacation package was incredible, especially when starting out!
    - It's an incredible open culture. You'll know what people will think about you, and for personal and professional growth, that's an incredible opportunity

    Cons

    - As with any consulting job, there's a work life balance you must consider
    - From an Experience Strategy, or Design Thinking perspective, there's more work to be done to be able to successfully capitalize on opportunities Capco was missing at the time. This is more of an upper level management problem that needs to be solved

    Advice to Management

    I think that rather than going to clients who just have a lot of money, I would say that come in from the perspective of being proactive, and not reactive, with clients needs. Become an advisor to the client and say that UX is a capability that you value and deliver on, not just "Visual Design", and have a way to delivering that pitch to clients so that they will be convinced to provide the work for you, so that UX Designers throughout Capco's organization become more billable

    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.

    A little more clarity on career growth. Things seems a bit arbitrary.

    Pros

    The company is investing lots of dollars into innovation and branding. This is creating a competitive advantage over the other legacy consultant firms.

    Cons

    As a Consultant you are on your own with very little mentoring. This can be good and bad depending on if you need support.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better process for helping new consultants mature.

    Pros

    Great culture, work life balance and people to work with. Helpful management and employee engagement is good. Visibility to senior management is also good.

    Cons

    Promotion is slow. Too many changes in management leads to shifting priorities. Having said that it is a growing firm and I dont have much to complain.
