    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.

    I have been working at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Capco is a wonderful place to work with management that really tries to help those who want to develop their skills. It has an open door policy but you sill have to walk through that door so if you just expect things to happen then try the fast food industry. Compensation and benefits are very generous! Projects are very interesting if you position yourself in line with what interests you. I was able to remain billable while being placed on projects that interest me.

    Cons

    If you are looking for someone to hold your hand through the entire process this firm will not work for you. If you are a "go-getter" and enjoy creating your own path than you will love this place. Sometimes (rarely), you will be asked to work late!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to make sure to not only acquire talent, but also work to retain the talent you acquire

    Pros

    Capco has a true entrepreneurial culture. If you are one of those who needs hand holding at every stage STAY AWAY!!. You are joining a management consulting and not a Big 4 Advisory practice so you need to on top of your game all year round.

    (1) Pay better than the big 4. Check out Glassdoor salary surveys for yourself.
    (2) Bonus structure similar to FS Companies.
    (3) Generous Vacation Days. Best in the industry
    (4) Vacation Bonus. You get $1000 bonus if you take 2 consecutive weeks of vacation :)
    (5) 10k/Year Training budget for every employee to take external training
    (6) True meritocracy, Performance review 2 times a year. so you do not wait an additional year to get promoted if you came close the last cycle.

    Cons

    (1) Since the Capco is small projects are concentrated around a couple of key accounts.
    (2) Job stability can be an issue if you do not build an internal network soon enough.
    (3) Lot of Travel. Most of the project are in Mid-Tier cities.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job!! Hire partners who can bring in a big book of business with them.
