    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Capco offers the best of both worlds, a small company feel where you will be known and able to make an impact, but also brings a Big 5 punch when it comes to delivering complex projects to top tier clients.
    Projects are at industry leading companies. The caliber of talent steepens your own growth trajectory, as you are surrounded by passionate, bright, people with deep domain knowledge and technical expertise. You know the impact you can make on the organization and don’t feel like just another number - leadership within your group knows every employee by name. The recent shift to being private is a exciting step to fueling Capco's growth aspirations.

    Cons

    This holds true with all consulting firms, but since teams are dispersed across clients and locations it sometimes is difficult to come together as much as we would like. There is certainly effort made to do this through a variety of after hours events- social, family and philanthropic. The team looks forward to team wide get togethers as a reunion of sorts with people you don't see on your current project.

    Advice to Management

    More team events would be welcomed...liking your team and wanting to get together more seems like a high quality problem to have.

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

    Pros

    Culture is what they claim it is at interview, open honest transparent. You get out what you put in! Honestly can say I enjoy my job, not everyday as it is has it challenges but the people I work for and with make it great.

    Cons

    There is lots for me to learn and improve at in my job but is that maybe a positive as otherwise I would not be developing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in employees the training and events especially in Scotland that I have seen so far have been superb!

    Pros

    Everybody is really helpful. Especially if there are pitches to win, people really stick together and try to bring it home. It is not only about selling to the clients but also giving them an added value and create sustainable relationships.

    Cons

    Currently no negatives issues to be mentioned.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing it like this.

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

    Pros

    - Flat hierarchy and approachable leaders
    - High quality learning and development (especially ‘milestone schools’)
    - Inclusive culture, underpinned by ethos of ‘Be Yourself at Work’
    - Active encouragement of innovation and disruption
    - Genuine opportunities to build a career and take on new responsibilities

    Cons

    Nothing major - I think the main challenge as Capco continues to grow is to retain the best of Capco today, while bringing greater alignment and consistency to some of the internal processes and practices

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more on the future direction of the business

    Pros

    Great people and an easy going work environment.

    Cons

    If they can staff you on a project they will, there is little to no concern about the employee's interest, goals, or skills. Project leadership needs improvement.

    Pros

    Nice pay, Work life Balance & Partying very often

    Cons

    Employees performance is not only calculated based on work performance but also with other cultural activities. If you don't participate in any of cultural activities then you will be rated low in performance appraisal.

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

    Pros

    What differentiates Capco from other companies is the desire of the management and the senior consultants to continually guide the professional pathways of younger colleagues. There is great mentorship and there is absence of a hierarchy-anyone is free to talk to any other colleague, irrespective of age and designation. Younger consultants can helm a team as opposed to merely carrying out the instructions of others. With respect to projects, employees are staffed on projects that are challenging and rewarding, allowing room for both personal and professional growth. Project managers give constructive feedback during review period and are earnest in their endeavour to groom others.

    Cons

    There are no cons for Capco

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that Capco continues to be the beacon of light for those who are looking for a consulting career.

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

    Pros

    - No / limited travel for roles
    - Good exposure to main UK banks
    - Great for a graduate starting out to get exposure to large organisations
    - Good and helpful partners

    Cons

    - Dependent on being in the key groups at Capco to progress- if you no longer keep up with drinking and going out- hard to progress and hard to get good roles
    - Bonus entirely driven on work done outside of your (busy) day role

    Advice to Management

    - Address the issue of key cliques running the firm and people's career progress- without this, you will lose consultants that are respected by your clients because they are at the client site rather than in the main office socialising
