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

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Not a lot else that can be said. Some good colleagues but all equally hate the place as much as each other.

    Cons

    Childish senior management, school-like environment. Power tripping leaders who have little to no authority love lording over their staff. Management will "throw you under the bus" at any given opportunity. If you are ambitious, steer clear. They do not acknowledge or recognise effort and talent. They will not reward without you asking 50 times first. Capped 10% pay rise on promotions. Expect you to go the extra mile for them, yet do not reward or make any offer in return. The only recommendation I can make is to not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Develop staff to progress. I have seen about 7 vacancies advertised internally, that have all been filled by external roles, despite a number of qualified personnel being suitable applying. This is a huge issue and is one of the main reasons staff retention rates are so low and everyone leaves. For the size of the business, the opportunities are very few and far between.

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

    Pros

    Broad exposure, fast paced, continuously changing

    Cons

    Poor salary and benefits, below the curve in the market place, always looking for a bargain

    Advice to Management

    Developing and retaining talent should be a priority, rather than losing it

    Pros

    A big company with a strong foothold in key markets, that combined with strong growth and a good culture makes it a good place to be working.

    Cons

    Would benefit from more high level training courses, although if you can give a good case for a specific course they are generally provided.
