Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 12 July 2018
Doesn't operate as a consultancy, so don't expect to work on unique consulting problems. Operating model is based on inserting 'consultants' into roles a bank has problem filling through its normal recruitment operations and then charging consulting fees whilst the consultant learns next to nothing. Predictability huge turn over of staff, not to mention long period of bench time waiting for roles to turn up of which a large percentage of staff are released within the probation period. The firm tries to hush this practice even requesting that "you dont need to tell anyone" what just happened. Toxic organisation, toxic culture, toxic partners, toxic people, there is nothing of value at this organisation.

Trainee (Former Employee) – Shoreditch – 4 July 2016
Work experience at a banking consultancy firm called Capco, allowed me to obtain more skills and knowledge within the business sector. During my week there I developed strategies used throughout the business sector that allowed me to focus on group work. Remit was to create a presentation summarising what we had learnt over the course of the week, we then hat to apply this knowledge to a case study. The employees taught us new things in depth such as customer satisfaction and how to solve working flow problems. This experience has developed my time management skills. We were given challenging tasks but this is what I relish, believing that hard work pays off This is something I follow as a principle of my life; I had a great week culminating in my group presentation being awarded first place.
Innovative, young, enigmatic environment that encouraged accountability and entreprenurial spirit
Senior Management Consultant (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 19 January 2015
A company that encourages you to deliver ownership over your career and your delivery. Never stops stretching you and ensures you continually ride an almost vertical learning curve. I have made many friends and is a pleasure to be a part of.
Atlassian DevOps Consultant (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 28 October 2014
Nice environment, good office, well located. The advanced technology used in Capco was very interresting. I learnt how to integrate different parts (Artifacts from different teams), build a master build and deploy it on different environment, choose a strategy suitable to the project
The management was very technical. I appreciate to talk about Technic with them.
Co-worker was very nice except about the documentation.
We spent time to know how to integrate all parts of the project. The hardest part of the job was to explain to very competent people how to change the way they are working. The most enjoyable was to see all the different team was able to deliver on time.
Consultant (Current Employee) – London – 29 June 2013
Capco is pre-dominantly a bodyshop in the guise of a consulting firm. They are only concerned of the bottom line while their marketing would lead you to believe they care about their employees and their development. The number and quality of projects is very poor and you WILL be forced to join a project with no consideration of your choice or career direction. Their current resourcing team in particular are terrible and highly political while management are made up of ex-accenture employees.
On the positive, salary is slightly above average and there are some intelligent people working for the firm.
Overall, a firm to avoid if you are looking for a consulting career but could be an entry point into the industry for grads and juniors.
Above average salaries and some good people
Bodyshop, low quality and quantity of projects, no choice in career direction
Principle Consultant (Current Employee) – Brighton – 24 June 2012
As Principle Consultant my main focus is in dealing with the client, understanding their needs and providing solutions for failing or challenging programmes. I have learned to be adaptable, manage difficult personalities in a wide variety of situations and surroundings. I pretty much manage myself but work closely with the Capco team members drawing on a huge resource base. The hardest part is being away from home Monday to Friday, I have always travelled with my job and enjoy that but not full time. The people I work with are the best part of my job, their level of excellence, motivation, willingness to get the job done and team spirit are exceptional. Nothing is ever to much to ask.
