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

    Pros

    The Associate Talent Programme (ATP) is not a "grad scheme" as such - it's not just open to graduates but offers an entry-level consulting job. This is what I found so interesting at the start, I joined not just with other graduates but people with all different backgrounds and experience! The short, sharp training that I began with offers me a good level of knowledge in the basics of consulting along with a comprehensive set of role plays which gave some life to the theory.

    The opportunities for quick career progression - it's a graduate scheme without the rigid confines of set milestones every year or two!

    Capco's culture - despite growing bigger and bigger, Capco had an entrepreneurial spirit about it and still has a "small firm" feel about it.

    Social events - there are several events every quarter which let's you network and meet people from all over the firm.

    Accessible Senior Management - over the year I've been here, I've met and spoke to many of the senior partners and leaders in the firm who are all extremely approachable and accessible at all the different events!

    Support network within the firm - the coaching system gives you access to leaders in the firm who support you with your career and general advice.

    Capco have a broad range of high-profile clients to work for, so I've ended up working with some of the largest Banks in the UK across different areas within Finance which has been really interesting.

    Capco has 28 offices around the world allowing opportunities for Global networking and job opportunities.

    Cons

    Some of the benefits offered aren't as broad as larger corporate firms (however this is somewhat made up for in the competitive graduate salary)

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people - all the events that go on at Capco are a great way of bringing the firm together and meeting your colleagues!

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

    Pros

    Despite of being under umbrella of a large parent organization, Capco Pune has retained culture of small organization where you feel connected to peers and to management. Senior management and HR team are quite accessible and are flexible to take inputs from employees. As organization is growing at a fast pace, there are ample growth opportunities. You get to work with some of the finest talents from across industry. Compensation is quite competitive. Someone coming in from a service based organization might find it little different to adjust to Consulting culture here, but once you spend sometime it will be a truly nice working experience.

    Cons

    Since it is still in initial growth phase in Pune, there seems to be limited client opportunities especially if you compare it with large service based organizations. However, with Management focus and outreach to potential clients, outlook seems positive!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive growth outlook!

    At least I should be completing a tenure of 8 months to think on these grounds where I can put forward my advice.

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

    Pros

    I have been working for Capco for 3 years and so far have had a great experience.

    The senior management team create a culture that is inclusive and supportive, and have maintained this even though the company is going through a huge growth spurt.

    Training is excellent and readily available. There is an active coaching community and the recognition process is fair and transparent.

    Projects I have worked on have been rewarding and value add to the clients.

    Cons

    As the company grows the existing performance management process is taking up a huge amount of resources and time to complete, and therefore needs to to be reviewed for streamlining where possible. I can already see improvements in this area however.

    Internal services such as technical support need to grow inline with the growth of the business in order to continue to adequately support.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the Capco culture and celebrating success!

    Pros

    Dynamic, ever-changing and fun. Always room to grow and bring new ideas to the table. Non-hierarchical and you can progress quickly. The company is growing fast but there are a group of senior leaders that maintain the culture - the challenge is cascading that across the business effectively.

    Cons

    New joiner integration and comms are still a challenge with rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee engagement and retention.
