Senior Consultant - Design Thinking (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 26, 2018
I haven't worked somewhere that I enjoyed the people I worked with as much as I do at Capco. However, the company doesn't stay true to its word to new hires and seems desperate to win new business, even when the work puts the company in a position where they don't have the right employees for the project to be successful. When hired, I was told I wouldn't be in a travel position, but since joining I have been on three projects, two of which have been full-time travel. The work can be challenging, but the company is more interested in staffing you on projects that are profitable rather than one where you are growing skills you desire.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Columbus, IN – October 23, 2018
A typical work day consisted of everyone starting with the daily meeting, explaining any quality issues there was. We would look at the schedule on the board to see where we would be at for the day before going to said areas. I learned how to work well with people and work fast. Management was nice and workplace culture was a bit slim. The hardest part of the job was just working with our hands. Assembling the parts would hurt my hands. The most enjoyable part was just the satisfaction of meeting production.
Fridays we would order out as a group, some of the people were nice, the benefits
Consultant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 26, 2018
Quite a few bad apples that are more focused on perception than quality results. Pretty toxic environment. A lot of good talent is let go, and a lot of mediocre talent stays due to billability. The end-of-year review process is very rigid, a system the competition moves away from. A lot of staff aug. Heard multiple people describe it as "amateur hour."
Great workplace atmosphere, management was there to help, this was a contract - temporary position, only lasted 3 months Close drive to home, good work/life balance, had flexible hours and they brough in lunch often. I would have loved to stay with this company had they offered me a full time position; however, the contract did not get renewed.
Poor Leadership, lack of opportunities - mostly PMO Staff Aug
Principal Consultant (Current Employee) – New York – July 11, 2018
Don’t know where to start, but it’s the most pathetic and humiliating consulting organization I have ever come across in almost all aspects. - First of all, it is not consulting and is purely staff aug which includes maximum PMO opportunities. - I would advice all laterals to keep away from this firm. Very poor culture and even poor leadership. - No opportunities and there seems no pipeline of work - They have a hire and fire policy, so basically no matter your experience you are treated like a body. If you are not able to find a project for yourself in a matter of 2 months consider your days are numbered. - HR and Talent Management is a complete joke - Partners act as if they are a blessing to the mankind
Bottom line - please don’t join for your own good. No matter what compensation or position is offered.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – August 17, 2018
Worked there for a month and it was the worst month ever. Had issues with a coworker that never got resolved management never cared about the issue. Wouldn’t allow me to move into a new department. Overall bad place.
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) – Columbus, IN – May 1, 2018
Management was not fair to employee, when I was train they train me wrong. It was all male managers no females, on training they didn't give any feed back on how you were doing or what they next steps were. The work enviorment was very stressfull. Manager constantaly talking about others employees. Employee confidentiality was broke all the time. They would tell the whole room who was getting fired or wrote up and for what reason.
Principal Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2018
Came here based on a bunch of lies, promised to lead a team, do innovative work and have an opportunity to grow my skillsets. In stead its been a waste of time and of my talent. Probably hurt my career more than anything.
Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 4, 2018
Capco wants to pretend to be innovative and progressive, but really it's the same as its competition, staff augmentation and pmo work. Flexibility is just a lie they sell you on, you don't really have a say in projects. Work-life balance is terrible on a lot of projects. And there's no reason for that if they'd just staff adequately. There's also blatant favoritism and dumb internal politics that nobody past the age of 10 should engage in. Don't believe their hype during the interview, it's mostly fluff. Do your research and know what you're getting into. This is not Google by any means and they will manipulate you left and right.l
Bad Work-Life Balance, politics, and project options
Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 7, 2018
If you enjoy doing PMO and Staff Augmentation work then this is the place for you. If you want something challenging and intellectually stimulating then stay far away. The firm advertises projects in FinTech but in reality that is not the case.
