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

    Pros

    People are great
    Benefits are stronger than other places
    Capco office is nice
    Seems there generally decent work if you're PC/MP

    Cons

    Comp is below market, especially if you move up internally
    No shame in staff aug, especially where the company is headed in just making a dollar any way possible
    Promotions and ratings are incredibly political despite what capco says (coming from someone who has done well)
    Projects aren't good. You have the wide array of being a project manager in a staff aug role or a business analyst in a staff aug role
    Win projects specifically because of lower cost, no other reasons
    HR on here acting like all this is far from the truth shows how out of touch they are

    Advice to Management

    If you want to compete as a consulting company then do less staff aug and pay people competitively, there's a reason for the turnover. Capco gets strong people but doesn't utilize them correctly and they leave.

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

    Pros

    There is still, somewhat, of a family like atmosphere here and people try to look out for each other. The company is seeing rapid growth.

    Cons

    This was once a great company with a lot of financial services insight and expertise. It's become a coding sweat shop with much of the financial services expertise now gone.

    The rapid growth has seen a lot of people join that are not what would be termed "Capco quality" in ability or attitude.

    The leadership team has become very weak. Some partners just seemed checked out while others talk a good game but don't seem to sell anything. These issues are fixable but two other things have gone too far.

    1) Favouritism - it is rampant here. The CEO has sent out blogs to say that it either doesn't exist or, where it does, it is justified due to performance. (ignoring a problem or denying, doesn't fix it)
    I've been here long enough to see that the preferential treatment is definitely NOT due to performance. It seems to be related to how well you get along and, unfortunately, it looks like race has now entered into this equation. This is obvious on the office's largest program where there is a clear and widespread impression that under performers of a certain ethnic background are being overly acknowledged and promoted at the expense of others. This is widely discussed between staff but either hasn't been heard by management or has been, more likely, ignored.

    There are even employees who have long left the company (and are part of the "inside clique") who are still showing on the company roster. Rumours are widespread throughout the office as to why this is and those are the whispered office joke.

    There are even two "consultants" who actually aren't consultants and no one really knows what they do but they never are on client engagements and seem to have no real performance metrics. Both part of the "favourites group"

    2) the partying atmosphere has gotten out of hand. It's fun in small doses but it has gotten ridiculous to the point it is embarrassing. That culture is set by one person. The stories of that person's performance at the last town hall (and the after party for the favourites and insiders) have spread across the office like wild fire and that person owes every Capco employee an apology. For the first time, I'm ashamed to work here.

    It's one thing to over indulge a bit once in awhile but the fall down, drooling all over yourself, unable to put together a coherent sentence and trying to become a poster child for why the #metoo movement exists, is a regular occurrence and so and over the top that, as a woman, I'm re-evaluating my employment here. I feel the impact of this individual's "extra-curricular activities" on the Capco brand is now beginning to impact the individual brands of the people in the company.

    I'm leaning in the direction that, the moment I find the right opportunity, I'll be sending in my good byes

    Advice to Management

    Seriously, clean up your act. This isn't university anymore. Start being professional. I really think that you need to start bringing a councillor in.
