I worked at Capita full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Staff benefits include healthcare, pension, share schemes, childcare vouchers. When the standardised HR processes work, they work well. Capita buys a lot of businesses, which keeps the HR team quite busy.

Cons

Occasional insane edicts are passed down from group IT and group HR. This is probably typical of a large organisation facing the problem of a sprawling mass of semi-autonomous businesses under a single umbrella.

Advice to Management

Relentless focus on monthly and yearly targets grinds down the average employee. It also tacitly encourages sociopathic behaviour in middle management, rewarding short-term economies rather than healthy investment for the future. I assume this works as a business strategy, but it takes a human toll.
