    I have been working at Capco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Capco offers the best of both worlds, a small company feel where you will be known and able to make an impact, but also brings a Big 5 punch when it comes to delivering complex projects to top tier clients.
    Projects are at industry leading companies. The caliber of talent steepens your own growth trajectory, as you are surrounded by passionate, bright, people with deep domain knowledge and technical expertise. You know the impact you can make on the organization and don’t feel like just another number - leadership within your group knows every employee by name. The recent shift to being private is a exciting step to fueling Capco's growth aspirations.

    Cons

    This holds true with all consulting firms, but since teams are dispersed across clients and locations it sometimes is difficult to come together as much as we would like. There is certainly effort made to do this through a variety of after hours events- social, family and philanthropic. The team looks forward to team wide get togethers as a reunion of sorts with people you don't see on your current project.

    Advice to Management

    More team events would be welcomed...liking your team and wanting to get together more seems like a high quality problem to have.

    Pros

    Nice pay, Work life Balance & Partying very often

    Cons

    Employees performance is not only calculated based on work performance but also with other cultural activities. If you don't participate in any of cultural activities then you will be rated low in performance appraisal.

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

    Pros

    Best part is work life balance. The clients are good and so as the company. There are ample opportunities to grow and showcase your talents and skills. Fruit a day, a lovely initiative by Capco to show their care about employees health.

    Health insurance coverage includes parents, spouse and children with no extra cost also shows Capco’s care for employees risk coverage.

    Hikes are good on average. Very professional environment to grow. Working in Capco is safe from security perspective. Rewards and recognition are rolled out to all deserving candidates.

    Cons

    If you are in bench there are no work from home Options and will have to clock 8 hours but thats the case with all service providing IT giants in the industry. Sometimes if you are not getting projects staying in bench can be frustrating. But such is the case with other companies too.

    Advice to Management

    Try to utilize bench strength to work on any internal initiatives like training material preparation, internal digital initiatives, POCs to present for any RFPs/ RFIs.

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

    Pros

    Decent hike from the last drawn paycheck - (but here’s the catch !! )

    The management along with HR and finance in lieu of the most twisted policies make sure what ever you have earned in last few months adds up to Capco’s revenue or goes to their parties fund.

    Ohh yes Parties - its a pro for you if you are one of those shameless guys who are not affected by the count these people keep on number of beers or how much food you had last night.

    Cons

    Usually I prefer not to badmouth the organisations I have served but honestly Capco is one of those trap which I want to save you from if you are able to reach this review. Because most of the top reviews are fake, written by bunch of most useless HR or employees with no moral values.

    So here’s the list of con tricks performed on you after you join Capco because of-
    - the fake reviews posted
    - are in deep financial crisis
    - haven’t connected with current or ex-employee over linkedin
    People who are joining capco because you have connect with the management or are from family need not read ahead.

    Scam 1: Recruitment team forces you to join early citing requirement is urgent.
    Usually they look for early joiners who will not have enough time to do a background check of company and fall prey for the fake reviews and decent hike.

    Scam 2: No projects (even the previous clients were fedup dealing with the gold diggers sitting at top calling themselves management but are actually deceivers)
    Around 70% of the people you see around will be on bench, without project preparing for job interviews.
    The new joiners during the initial week will be given fake assurance of tons of projects in pipeline.

    Scam 3: Certification and Training
    Recently the mastermind policy makers have come up with new ways of generating revenue for Capco.
    Looting employees by providing training and forcing them to do certification.
    As soon as you do a training you are bounded by a year contract which is kept secret untill you plan to resign after having enough of Capco.
    The day you submit your resignation you will receive a complete list of dues pending on your name.
    Don’t be surprised if it comes close to your 6 months salary.

    Scam 4: Onsite - employee retention cum torture program
    If you are one of those unlucky fellow who gets into project, you are threatened to travel onsite at the cost of your job eventually subscribing to atleast one more year of torture in Capco
    As soon as you travel-
    - The jobless HR team gets the work, they will keep updating your due register with be it your travel ticket, stay at onsite or per-diem.
    - you can not resign untill 6 months even if you travel for 15 days

    So eventually 15 days of onstite means you can not leave capco on your wish for minimum 9 months including notice period.

    If you are still not convinced and are planning to join Capco go through all wrongdoing employee goes through eventually resigning-

    - Arrogant Head/ Leadership
    Although people sitting on top and proliferating arrogance can’t be called management/leadership.
    These top people be it from management or HR in their small world think themselves as dictator and run company on their own terms.
    One day you have some policy and from next day a new policy is introduced just because one person thinks so.
    Literally you will get threats of firing for even a small mistake.
    Freshers are treated as if they have no say and have to folllow what ever comes to them.
    The entire management thinks they are doing charity by giving salary to employee.

    - Firing in the name of Cost Cutting
    People will never know when is their last day in Capco.
    One day you come to office with you lunch box packed but who knows you have to take it back and finish it at home.
    The uncalculative management does irrational calculations and hire people without knowing actual requirement increasing the bench strength, and then fire people on their will with no proper justification.

    Seriously if you want to grow with mental peace of mind avoid joining Capco for few extra bucks.
    Even you will be forced to keep your family second priority (cases like person though on paternity leave was called to office and on refusal was threatened to fire).

    HR are big time loosers and follow blindly what management tells. A real life puppets.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid fooling people and stop playing with career of employees.
    The dictatorship will give you nothing but only a bunch of loosers on a longer run.
