    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Capco is a place that will give back to you what you put into it. If you are a self-motivated, entrepreneurial thinker who loves a challenging day-to-day, Capco is a fantastic place to grow your career.

    There are client engagements at every major bank in New York, with plenty of additional opportunity.

    The firm has a very young feel to it - lots of energy, creativity and committment.

    Cons

    Capco is light on infrastructure, intentionally lean. You may find yourself doing some things that are normally done for you at other firms. Put differently, it is a roll-up-your sleeves culture, for better or worse.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively pursue the growth strategy with the new independent ownership, and defend the culture at all costs. Capco is a special place to work for all of us.

    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.
