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

    Pros

    Fast growing brand among financial services clients
    Focused on new consulting - digital and next gen tech, rather than "standard" project delivery
    Compensation is fair based on levels and competitors
    Meritocracy with a very robust and fair performance management process
    Ability to shape the firm and access senior management at every level - unlike other consultancy firms

    Cons

    Relatively constrained cost base for discretionary spend (e.g. back office investment)

    Advice to Management

    Grow top line revenues and rates to generate investment to grow internal processes as we transition from a medium to a large company

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

    Pros

    People are great
    Benefits are stronger than other places
    Capco office is nice
    Seems there generally decent work if you're PC/MP

    Cons

    Comp is below market, especially if you move up internally
    No shame in staff aug, especially where the company is headed in just making a dollar any way possible
    Promotions and ratings are incredibly political despite what capco says (coming from someone who has done well)
    Projects aren't good. You have the wide array of being a project manager in a staff aug role or a business analyst in a staff aug role
    Win projects specifically because of lower cost, no other reasons
    HR on here acting like all this is far from the truth shows how out of touch they are

    Advice to Management

    If you want to compete as a consulting company then do less staff aug and pay people competitively, there's a reason for the turnover. Capco gets strong people but doesn't utilize them correctly and they leave.
