Capco – Why Work For Us?


Capco is a global management consultancy with a focus in financial services including banking and payments, capital markets, and wealth and asset management. Our professionals combine innovative thinking with our unrivalled first-hand industry knowledge to offer our clients consulting expertise, complex technology and package integration, and managed services to move their organizations forward. Through our collaborative and efficient approach, we help our clients successfully, innovate, increase revenue, manage risk and regulatory change, reduce costs and enhance control. We serve our clients from offices in leading business centers across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa.

We work closely with our clients to understand the challenges and opportunities they face, and help them prepare for a radically changing landscape in financial services. We begin with a robust strategic understanding, and then we go further.  We perform in-depth assessments, create transformation roadmaps and provide implementation solutions.  These include managing complexity, prediction and control of risk, and practical responses to regulation that enable our clients to go ‘beyond compliance’.

Forming the Future of Finance

Partnering with our clients and the wider industry, we aim to continuously form the future of finance. This means we are not restricted to an external consulting role. Through the respected Capco Institute and our award-winning and independent Capco Journal of Financial Transformation, we actively participate in discussions and explorations of key industry issues.




We work hard to maintain an inclusive culture, where people are consistently at the heart of our agenda. We look to actively engage all our people and to give them a platform for continuous career development. We foster a work environment where they can grow personally as well as professionally, and be themselves at work. Capco is also committed to giving back to our local communities through multiple volunteer events and initiatives sponsored by our corporate social responsibility team.

Sports. Team events. Happy Hours.  Milestone Schools. Townhalls.  There is always something happening beyond work at Capco. With our extended Capco family of unique and talented individuals, it is no surprise that we enjoy spending downtime with the people who make Capco such a great place to work. We truly believe if you find a job you love, you will never work a day in your life. Join us and experience for yourself why we think you will love Capco.

    Pros

    Capco is a place that will give back to you what you put into it. If you are a self-motivated, entrepreneurial thinker who loves a challenging day-to-day, Capco is a fantastic place to grow your career.

    There are client engagements at every major bank in New York, with plenty of additional opportunity.

    The firm has a very young feel to it - lots of energy, creativity and committment.

    Cons

    Capco is light on infrastructure, intentionally lean. You may find yourself doing some things that are normally done for you at other firms. Put differently, it is a roll-up-your sleeves culture, for better or worse.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively pursue the growth strategy with the new independent ownership, and defend the culture at all costs. Capco is a special place to work for all of us.
