    Pros

    Capco UK has grown massively over the last 5 years. During this time the CEO has changed, but there is a core group of Partners who have been part of maintaining consistency and culture in the organisation. This has a positive impact as ‘from the top’ there are role models who have flexed and adapted to what the organisation needs.
    If you are prepared to work hard then you will get the recognition for it. This may involve periods of working long hours or doing a lot of ‘extra curricular’ work such as interviewing, coaching, business development and practice development - but this is valued and is how the UK business has managed to grow so massively.
    Despite what some other reviews say, there is a focus on giving consultants the choice on which project they get assigned to - however Capco is also a business, so there may be times where it feels like you are assigned without any consultation - here I would say it’s up to the consultant to understand where they are being proposed and speak up early on what they are looking for rather than sit on the bench with diva demands.

    Cons

    For some people there is a lack of transparency on how their work (on client side or extra curricular) fully contributes to promotion / compensation - I think that part of this is also due to quality of some coaches who aren’t giving enough support to their proteges and preparing them realistically for life as a Capco consultant, and part of it is down to comms around the performance management framework differing with perception of end of year outcomes.
    There is still a feeling that some accounts are better/worse than others. It would be useful if delivery leads with senior coaches could come together to dispel some of these myths and support focussing on the role and potential for career growth, not just the account assignment.
    At some of the junior levels there is a feeling of entitlement with the new entry level consultants. Keep them grounded by managing them firmly from the outset and not allowing them to feel too ‘special’ when they join. There’s no harm in learning the hard way sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    - focus on reducing attrition. There are some great people in the organisation who would be a loss if they left - at all levels. The people in the organisation are your only asset
    - continue to keep a flat hierarchy. Partners are not gods
    - revenue generation is important as Capco is a business, but we could do more to save the environment. Invest in this too

    Pros

    I have joined Capco recently.
    It has been great experience working for one of the reputed service industries. It provides ample resources to grow and provides great work life balance. “One fruit a day” is one of the initiatives which is really nice. One cannot complain about the compensation since they pay well as per expectations.

    Cons

    The people on the bench finds there is a communication gap and should be kept informed with the status.

    Advice to Management

    There should be some engagement activities which needs to be in place while people are on bench and well communicated with the status on frequent intervals.

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

    Pros

    I'm working in Capco India for last 6 years. I've seen the company grow over threefold in size. Capco works for big clients in Investment banking, retail banking, commercial banking and regulatory space. Employees work directly with clients, instead of going through an onsite person like in other service companies. Even very junior employees interact with clients and users and make independent decisions. Also the culture of the company is quite open; its a flat structure and people can approach senior management quite easily.

    Cons

    The company should add more accounts in India, so that employees get an opportunity to grow
