    I have been working at Capco full-time

    Pros

    The old saying, you get out of it what you put into it is absolutely true. After being "sold" to Capco last year I had to start over with a new company. I've had more praise, recognition, awards and opportunities in the past year than I had in the last 5 years at my previous company. The ability to get involved in areas that interest you is a great motivator and gives me the boost in my career that I didn't even realize was lacking.

    I've seen first hand, the integrity of the Partners who have backed up employees against unrealistic expectations from a client.

    Medical insurance policies offered come with a zero deductible.

    Cons

    If you struggle with networking, you will have a challenge.

    There is a great deal of growth right now and at times it will seem disorganized. If you have little patience or require more rigor and structure, it might not be the right place for you. You will need to be more agile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a re-leveling plan for employees who have been acquired after 6-12 months.

    I worked at Capco as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    nothing, all rosy pictures at the time of interview don't believe

    Cons

    - Capco is aquired by FIS, there is a consolidation of company is going on, company(India) is filled with 3X more manages than required. Murex ship is shrinking.
    - They are firing people with unethical reasons like "you pissed that day incorrectly" (just an example, you will hear very silly reasons)
    - once you come in you will not have job for few months as pipeline is very weak, they will try to move you wrong fitment so that you can quit else they force you to quit
    - there are few bosses who are sitting and writing company rules every day as they are job less :):):) he he he
    - these guys who are sitting on top and jobless are really causing the pain to rest of the crowd.
    - innovation is zero, onsite openings zero, learning zero
    - company is moving more in to managed services mode where you will be put in to shifts around the clock
    - if you are technology guys never come near this company
    - if you are domain guy, think about joining Capco abroad, but for sure not Capco India
    - if you are manager, never ever join Capco India as you will become head counter every day in the morning and evening with not more than 10 heads you can count (every 10 people have one senior manager here) - no growth opportunity
    - Capco india is most crappiest I have ever seen in this segment of small scale companies
    - initial pay is good, then hike is as low as below 5%

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

    Pros

    Good transport facilities. I do not see any other pros as the work is not competitive and you have to give in minimum 9 hours at office even though there is nothing much to do.

    Cons

    Lot of politics in management.
    Salary not competitive to position/role offered.
    Non-competitive projects if you come from a good service based organisation.
    No pipeline.
    Apart from no dress code and fruit-a-day offered for free, strict and non-flexible policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep feedback from associates to HR confidential!! Try sensing the pulse of team on ground. No one likes politics and favouritism.

    I worked at Capco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good reward if you can boss, don't have to work much, just please him

    Cons

    No proper management. Policies are not transparent. They keep on changing as per the requirement of the management.
    No proper career plan for the employee, can be asked to do anything irrespective of the expertise of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be transparent with your policies and the assessment process. You will loose good employees otherwise.
    Please stop following Accenture with respect to policies.

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

    Pros

    None that I can recall. I moved from large MNC to this company hoping some quality work and good environment to use my qualification. Instead, the projects here are mostly for high school kids. The people who work here are the most ignorant people i have ever met. Politics runs very high in the team and HRs are helpless and are no help to you.

    I left the company within a month of joining.

    Cons

    -- Higher mangement is useless
    -- Team members are not very qualified (at least I can say that for Bangalore, India)
    -- Work is a call center job
    -- HR team is as good as not being there
    -- Better not to mention others

    I left the job as soon as I joined. All the other team people I came in contact have the same vision.

    Pros

    You need to help yourself to find the light in darkness

    Cons

    The salary is not tagged with the level you are at meaning it doesnot matter at what level you are in the company. It can vary from deep down in a pit to the limits of sky at the same level.
