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

    Pros

    • Partnered with big names in the financial sector
    • Good place to START if you’re transitioning from industry to consulting
    • Decent lower end Company to start out of college wit

    Cons

    • Capco has changed from consulting firm and into a glorified staffing agency
    • Projects are high-end Staff Aug and Operations work – Strategy and consulting projects are few and far between
    • They have no methodology’s, frameworks, models or even a knowledge management that helps junior / mid-level learn or grow professionally (they poach heavily on industry professionals because of this)
    • Consultants are heavily leverage against projects they are over qualified for, this leaves resources on projects well below their competency and have no room to be challenged
    • Extremely High Turnover (Voluntary)
    • High Layoff rate
    • The new ‘Changesourcing’ is just re-branded outsourcing, the nature of these contracts end with sending roles to cheaper off-shore locations (Massive Hiring followed by Massive Layoffs)

    Advice to Management

    Human Capital is your greatest asset in this industry, do not forget it. No one cares how flashy (and hollow) your Digital Innovation Lab is.

    Knowledge management (and retention) is not an industry differentiation but rather an industry standard. You’re losing opportunities, expertise, assets, and money hand over fist without it. Leveraging credential slides are just empty words and promises when you’re starting every project with a blank slate.

    Lastly, be honest with people. You may have started out as a great small consulting firm that concentrated on innovative and strategy projects, but you have changed your business offerings to for more large scale and profitable pastures with long term staff loan (operations) positions.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Some excellent leaders. A very egalitarian working environment. Excellent exposure to middle and upper middle management in financial services firm. Not afraid to gamble and not afraid to fund ideas.

    Cons

    Staff augmentation part of corporate equation is increasing. This appears to be an issue for employees who want to be in management consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Be more explicit in terms of what the new pipeline means from a career standpoint.
