    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The environment is changing, it is getting less political and more focused on building capabilities, the business, and strengthening the Capco brand. There are lots of talented and cool people who are willing to work hard. Because of the flat structure, it is a lot easier to gain access to senior management and clients. I came from a bigger consultancy and I find it very refreshing to be able to make an impact rapidly...

    Cons

    There is still opportunity to build a stronger culture; transparency can also still be improved so people feel that they have "skin in the game". There can also be more effort to gel the team even more and dismantle the cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication lines open, celebrate team successes, continue to invest in building the brand. This will keep the people engaged and will also allow Capco HK to win more interesting work at different clients. Support topic experts and specialists by allowing them to shine and get market exposure, as this will ultimately benefit the firm and strengthen Capco's reputation in the market. Look into efforts make teams...

    I worked at Capco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with! Capco Dallas/Houston employees really care for their clients and each other. Opportunities are there for the taking, but they aren't simply given. The Dallas office is full of tech minded consultants doing great things for their clients.

    Cons

    1) Limited number of clients. The clients are long standing and strategic, but few. 2) Capco is run like a small consultancy. Therefore, sometimes roles must be filled by less than ideal fit resources. Leadership is aware of these challenges and does their best to accommodate staffing changes in due time.

      I have been working at Capco full-time

      Pros

      Some great projects if you hold out for them, and reputation amongst clients overall very positive.

      Cons

      - For all the procedures and peer reviews in place for performance management, it's just lip service. Consistency of standard required to get promoted varies; too many Consultants promoted to Senior Consultants at year-end has led to message that there will be stricter quotas at mid-year promotion round. - Accounts do not use the admittedly robust and descriptive competency frameworks. - Being based in head office...

      Advice to Management

      Don't talk about robust peer-reviewed promotions unless you can answer why a disproportionately high number of Consultants who joined with 2 Partners from a previous firm all got promoted at the same time...
