    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    Free fruit and corporate AMEX that you don't ever have to pay.

    Work/life is awesome bc you don't do anything.

    Cons

    High turnover, body shop tactics and incompetent "management".

    If you're unemployed or facing unemployment soon, take an offer bc the work is a joke and you'll have plenty of time to search for better employment.

    Advice to Management

    FIS dumped you like a bad habit. Hopefully, something good materializes besides the body shopping engagements.

    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    The partner model is outdated - might rethink career growth strategies

    Pros

    Quality of work-life balance is great. There is a very strong and positive firm culture and growth model. Also, the firm's truly cohesive structure and culture speak well to upper management and their leadership.

    Cons

    There isn't much I can write here...Management is scattered but it's part of the Management Consultant world so it's understandable.

    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

    I worked at Capco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    What was great about working at Capco as they were up in letting you take cool classes for additional education even if it technically didn't have to do with your current job, for which the paid for! For example a decoding class. They were also know for being very active to let you participate in activities, like running races and playing tennis in Roosevelt Island in NYC, which they paid for! They also let you volunteer during working hours. Best of all, they paid for us to go to Puerto Rico, which felt like a vacation then work! This was back in 2015 before they were taken over by FIS, so things may have changed.

    Cons

    Even though Capco had a lot of Pros back in 2015, they also had a lot of Cons which included supervisors who made it difficult for you to work which ended up making you lose your job. Capco executives did not help in anyway from stopping the supervisor of treating the employee this way.

    Advice to Management

    Be much more supportive and listen to the employee when crying for help!

    I worked at Capco full-time

    Pros

    A lot of smart people get tricked into joining, and the culture is still good at entry level

    Cons

    Work has shifted from involving some strategy to pure staff aug, project management outsourcing, data grunt work, random stuff back office staff won't do themselves. Promotions are about who you know and good work is not rewarded. There is a lack of expertise that is compensated for by an aggressive sales culture and long hours worked by entry level consultants with no guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the nepotism and stop selling projects that you cannot deliver
