    I have been working at CAPCO full-time

    Pros

    As a consultant you get the opportunity to experience a lot of different companies (clients) as well different projects and programmes. Your range of skills and knowledge will became a lot wider that if you work for a company on a particular role and side of business.

    Cons

    Client sees you as a paid bill and works you with a different level of respect and integration. You have to do your day job and you still need to do the extra as part of the consultancy that employs you. Expect very very long hours for salaries that are in no way reflective of what the amount of hours you work. If you seek a career in a particular area it will not be happening as you need to do whatever is given to you. The career progression exists but takes different angles and it's more based on your sale targets - the more you evolve the more your delivery expectation will drop and the more you will be expected to sell services to clients ...

    I have been working at CAPCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is for Capco energy which is IT delivery focused unlike the rest of capco. Inclusive culture, personal growth oriented, good coaching for those under senior consultant.

    Cons

    Getting to SC is a difficult in terms of getting promoted into the tier, once there its very politics heavy and quite honestly is design for most people to either quit or be ok with no position growth. Also there's no clear individual contributor path for tech/dev oriented resource.

    I have been working at CAPCO

    Pros

    - At more senior levels, Capco hires "remote" employees that are not near existing corporate offices (NYC, Chicago). - Decent work-life balance for type of role. -

    Cons

    - Partners seem to confuse thought with accomplishment. Slideware is more important than actual abilities that reside within the company. No significant investment in the "new" beyond slides. - All "innovation" is of the opportunistic variety. Still waiting to see how we "form the future of finance" - Project assignments don't correspond to skill sets - just availability. - CEO and President of NA just shit-canned, with no reason given, or new strategy presented. - Majority of projects aren't consulting - they're staff augmentation

    I worked at CAPCO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are many nice, warm and open co-workers who want to do a good job serving Capco's clients and to perform well.

    Cons

    There are many people and leaders with short tenure at Capco, so it's difficult to get traction creating a long-lasting productive culture.
