    I worked at Capco full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Please 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

    Cons

    Lots 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 ManagementAdvice

    MR 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

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

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

    Pros

    1. 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

    Cons

    1. 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 ManagementAdvice

    1. 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
