JUST STAY AWAY FROM THIS COPMANY

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Capco full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPlease stay away from this company bcoz i have seen lots of politics and favouritism in this company, you can not share your thoughts with anyone ...not even HR..i remember one incident where my manager was doing favouritism and i inform to HR and she directly informed to Manager so you can not speak anything in this company

ConsLots of politics...it's not a company...just stay away..all Delivery Lead playing with employee carrier, Delivery Lead many time i have seen they are abusing employee and no body taking care...all HR and delivery lead are playing with employee carrier

Advice to Senior ManagementMR CEO has to set up one to one with all employee..and Few project are there where Delivery Lead are not doing anything..openly playing GAME with employees...and openly doing favouritism, only favourite employee will get on-site and award..other employee are working just like animals

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a good place for .Net/JAVA Folks!!!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Capco full-time for more than a year

Pros1. Good place to work for if you are into following skill set:
    -BA
    -Testing
    -HR
    -Manager
    -Senior Management
    -Contract Employees
    -Murex related technology
    -Freshers (Freshers are treated as angel's here. You will enjoy like anything)

2. Good package
3. Small company, so growth will be good.
4. Lots of parties, if you like to party
5. Fruits will be served every day
6. Cab/Laptop/Company Sim/Car Loan/House Loan facility
7. Good infrastructure

Cons1. If you are out of a [Billable] position, then you will be thrown out of the company.
2. Firing rate is quite high compared to any other company [As this is a small company, rate of firing is high]
3. They treat employees as contract resources and play with their career. If you want to join as a contract employee then its a best place to work for.
4. Not many technology projects. As of now there is only one .Net project & very less number of java projects. All other projects are related to business consulting / management consulting/ murex, so not a good place for .Net/java people.
5. Lots of politics
6. In-competent managers
7. No Technical training's
8. No in-house tools means you need to install all free evaluation version of software. Company has no vision to build technology in-house tools instead spends lot of money into partying.
9. There is no strategy to grow. Its like as and when you get a new project hire people, and when project completes, if there are no other place to fill the resources fire them. This is the only strategy / vision.

I am a technology resource, so my reviews are based on personal view and may not match with skill set mentioned in Pros. as all the above points in Cons may not be applicable for them.

Advice to Senior Management1. Employees are assets to any organization. Please don't ruin their career
2. Have a sales team in India to bring new technology projects
3. Build good vision / strategy to build employee satisfaction

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A mixed bag of feelings

Consultant (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Capco full-time for more than a year

Pros- Caring about it's employees, spends lot of money on them
- Close knot group of people
- Best HRs in town
- Excellent projects for core domain experts
- Daily fruits and snacks at work ;)

Cons- Limited .NET projects
- Difficult to switch between internal engagements
- The newly appointed India CEO is over-zealous and over-confident, though has excellent leadership qualities

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not try to force new ideologies and policy decisions on employees at the drop of a hat. Try to get an internal outlook or an anonymous survey about what the employees really want.
Most of the recent policies are of no use to the majority of the employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

- People are just like that promoted.
- Managers do not solve the problem instead create political problems.
- A lot of politics at all levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting like an Ostrich in times when you need to act and resolve the issues.
