    Lot of really great people to mingle and mangle Innovative projects that makes an absolute impact Deep expertise in the financial services sector Seniors are very passionate about what they do and provide great mentorship

    On top of providing strategy Capco takes the project to the implementation phase, which tends to be longer (may be a con if you want to get broad experience here and there)

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great people, very focused on helping individuals grow, opportunities existed to move abroad after a year or two of service.

    Cons

    Afraid to have difficult conversations with clients in case they lose the contract which I know many consulting firms have an issue with. I think did a disservice to the company when in fact it had the expertise to advice clients appropriately.

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

    Pros

    I started out at Capco after graduating college, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to start my career. Capco invests a whole lot in their ATP (Associate Talent Program), and I've been so inspired by all of the great talent we see at the junior level consultants. Capco truly embraces the concept of a "flat hierarchy", and empowers their employees to take complete charge of their experience and career at Capco. I love seeing leadership and senior management be so invested in coaching and mentorship. When your co-workers and managers end up becoming friends you can do life with outside of work - you know you're at a company full of great people.

    Cons

    Your experience at Capco can be and will be heavily influenced by the project you're on. However, you can also make the best of the situation and find ways to grow or stay connected with broader community, especially if you're on client site everyday.

    I have been working at Capco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. Great people, really friendly and very collaborative 2. Always opportunity to extend yourself. Sometimes this is uncomfortable but this makes it worthwhile 3. Variety of work across different projects, topics and business development

    Cons

    Career and leadership development is very much dependent upon individual responsibility and coaches, and less on overall company structure. Although I do see improvements here.
