    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.

    Pros

    At Capco, you have the opportunity to develop your skills, learn from some of the best in the field, and build your professional and personal network. You can make things happen and realize your goals. I've always been struck by the level of passion and energy of the people of Capco. As consultants, we are always challenging ourselves and looking at ways to make an even greater impact. The company cares about its people and invests in learning opportunities and social events that help to foster a sense of community. I love working at Capco!

    Cons

    You need to be self-motivated, and pursue the opportunities that are available to you. If you are not comfortable driving your own career, you might struggle at Capco.

    I have been working at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Ich bin seit über 4 Jahren bei Capco und habe somit die vielen Veränderungen hinsichtlich des Managements aber auch der Unternehmensstrategie und -ausrichtung miterlebt, ein nicht immer einfacher und teilweise schmerzvoller Weg. Am Ende dieser Umstrukturierungsphase ist das Unternehmen aus meiner Sicht sehr gut für die zukünftigen Wachstumspläne aufgestellt und davon profitieren die Mitarbeiter genauso wie das Unternehmen.
    Capco bietet vielfältige, zunehmend internationale, spannende Projekte die fachlich sehr anspruchsvoll sind und überwiegend die komplette Beratungsleistung – von der Strategie bis zur Umsetzung – abdecken. Die Kollegen machen aber aus meiner Sicht den eigentlichen Unterschied – sehr motiviert, kreativ und engagiert. Hier strebt keiner nach einem 9-5 Job.
    Sehr gute Leistung und Engagement werden auch anerkannt. Alle 6 Monate gibt es Performance-/ Promotion Reviews. Der Performance Management Prozess wurde 2016 komplett überarbeitet und ist dabei sehr viel transparenter und fairer geworden. Zudem gibt es eine neue App, die u.a. Live Feedback ermöglicht, so dass man genau weiß, wo man steht.

    Als Zusatz zur bestehenden direkten Coachbeziehung gibt es seit Kurzem die sogenannten Coaching Familes. Diese sollen die Community- & Coaching Kultur sowie die Qualität des Coachings weiter stärken. In regelmäßigen Abständen treffen sich der Coaching Family Leader (=Partner) und ihre „Familien“, um relevante Themen zu besprechen und den Austausch über alle Levels hinweg zu fördern.

    Flexibles Arbeiten/ Home Office ist möglich.

    Cons

    Die extra Meile gehen die meisten Mitarbeiter im Unternehmen. Sei es durch die Weiterentwicklung von fachlichen Themen neben der Projektarbeit, die Unterstützung von Trainings oder auch Recruiting. Man fühlt sich wie ein Unternehmer im Unternehmen und das führt manchmal auch zu Herausforderungen, die Balance zwischen Capco und dem Privatleben zu halten.

    Advice to Management

    Noch mehr persönlicher Austausch und 1:1 Gespräche über alle Level hinweg wären wünschenswert.

    I worked at Capco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Money + Salary + Colleagues = work and food.

    Cons

    Not an honest company - very devious and lots of backstabbing.

    People not being treated fairly from an HR perspective.

    Poor recruitment and hidden agendas.

    A sales driven managed service/recruitment company (not a consultancy) approach that people need to be careful with.

    Advice to Management

    You are very transparent.

    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Reasonably well recognized brand in FS Capital Markets, nice niche for a boutique this size. Smart people who really know their space. Good place for junior staffers to learn

    Cons

    Too much like Accenture - pushing sales - long hours working and after hours partying required

    Advice to Management

    The partner model is outdated - might rethink career growth strategies

    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Capco being a small company, there is a lot of scope for recognition. Where there is true merit, there is also timely recognition of the employees that leads to encouraging them further.
    It also offers a lot of flexibility in terms of working from home and managing ones work life balance.
    It offers a good mix of consulting and technology based roles and is definitely a great company to work for that supports it's diversity force.

    Cons

    Where being a small company plays in favor of Capco, it also comes with it's cons since, apart from the presence of just a few large accounts, it is the absence of the smaller and mid sized accounts that makes it difficult to support its employees in terms of exploring new projects/roles.

    Advice to Management
