I have been working at Capco full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company is a IT consulting company so there is travel involved. The company has great opportunities for aspiring individuals to contribute and make a difference. The salary and benefits have been great because they consider themselves a premium consulting service so they are expensive but there experience in the Finance world is highly recognized although I don't have any personal experience in that area. I like the atmosphere and my management team.

Cons

The travel can be hectic and the pressure intense because they have important clients but what company doesn't? I would like to have more guidance and direction and more contact with my mentor but I think this aspect of the company is still growing. The QA skills for the other workers are far below what I would expect from a premium firm. I think they are overly concerned with billable and not actual work delivered.

Advice to Management

Individual growth is being addressed each year because I that that has been one of the common complaints but I would still like to see more change in this area. I would add that Capco's effort in this area is still leaps and bounds above many companies.

    Pros

    13/15 Best place to Work...
    3 weeks vacation per year and a generous holiday schedule

    Cons

    Morale is low and people are leaving at all levels and they don't seem to care about matching offers.
    Quality of projects is below average, you are sold a dream and encounter a reality of dead-end projects such as testing, PM or similar back-office positions
    Salaries below average, but they claim they offer "Market rates"
    "Forced" vacations while on the bench, they call it Quality of Life

    Advice to Management

    Is Capco a Management Consulting firm, or just a group of Project Managers, Testers and other Back-office support. No shame in that, but that's not Forming the Future of Finance...
