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

    Pros

    The benefits are above average

    Cons

    -Hiring Spree has lead to some under qualified candidates in more senior positions
    -Partners are very territorial which can impact which projects you can move to
    -Review cycle is less than ideal (there are parameters, but they do not follow them all the time)
    -Limited L&D (they have been trying to improve it but if you are not in NYC you will not get much training)

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Capco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of community activities and chances to connect with colleagues if that's what you want

    Hires from many different backgrounds so you get a diverse team

    Cons

    A lot of people lack core consulting skills and knowledge, those who excel usually leave the company within a short time

    Community contribution is valued over project work in performance management, leading to people spending more time trying to network and socialize instead of delivering actual work

    Advice to Management

    Please stop hiring people who are all talk and no action

    I have not come across any cons of working at Capco. Inspite of the great growth that the Capco has witnessed, it is great to see and witness that the senior management is still invested to ensure that the Company culture is maintained and reinforced in all employees and new joiners.
