Pros

The people are outstanding and the work is ever changing, challenging and interesting. The overall compensation is also very good to excellent. My Vice President is second to none in terms of abilities.

Cons

Not much other than the hours can be long and travel can sometimes be hectic. Also, it's imperative that you have a Vice President that understand the business and is competent. Without it, you're in big trouble.

Advice to Management

Sell more and more projects that are customer facing, IT can be very dry and the people at Cap have a diverse array of talents and want sexier projects.
