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

Pros

Still has many quality people to work with, growing, good international presence, focus on Financial Services provides advantages. High quality clients.

Cons

Significant dilution of talent and focus after acquisition of many former Bearing Point personnel and sale/partnership with FIS. Significant politics due to Capco v Bearing Point management and executives.

    I worked at Capco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People care, focused more on people than metrics, meritocracy. You can grow as fast as you can demonstrate your capability and value. Diversity is a fact of life rather than an initiative.

    Cons

    not enough client diversification, reliance on a couple of big clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More investment in learning -- and make sure people get to attend. You're only as good as your people.

    I have been working at Capco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy access to senior people who you can learn a lot from
    Chance to participate in high level strategy projects

    Cons

    MPs tend to create an hostile atmosphere at many projects and treat employees as second class citizens
    Always the same type of short, high level projec. Lacking in real substance
    The company tries to promote an own culture, while in reality, things are different…be aware of many false advertisements and many broken promises
    Projects are too intensive work wise and demand more then 8 hrs. along with weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either give better perks or treat people better, otherwise, you will not be able to retain employees too long

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
