Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Capita as a contractor (More than 8 years)

Pros

acquisition experience, ftse-50, growing company

Cons

no sense of identity
internal market between member companies
lack of vision, too much hands off by HQ to subs
too uk focused
little meritocracy - more of a club

Advice to Management

bit more organic growth and better inclusion programes as part of transition, staff feel more identity and affinity to their contracts than to Capita
