works at

#1. Money. Compared to Big4, level for level, Capco pays a premium (I came from a Big4 and had offers from Capco and a competitor Big4; Capco offered me a ~35% raise, which was ~15% more than the competitor Big4). #2. Work life balance. NY's Capco office is mainly local projects (You also have a lot more agency in choosing your projects at Capco than what I've seen at the Big4). #3. Big fish small pond. Capco is much smaller than a Big4 and this allows you to more eaisly be noticed. This translates into a less rigid promotion structure where it's easier to climb the ladder, if you can perform and are a rockstar.

Will speak to RofUS... If you're coming in as an SC or higher, I wouldn't even consider it. I would barely consider it as a consultant. Work is super low right now and the bench is heavy. You will be held responsible for your low utilization. Projects are not assigned based on skillset but by what clique you're in. There is an application system called compass which nobody actually uses. Pay is decent, but the talent and type of meaningful challenging work is lacking. Besides that a lot of Capco people are straight a-holes. You would think they are all Deloitte alumni by how arrogant they are. If you're desperate to get into consulting, want to leverage the experience for a couple of years and move up, go for it. But if you're already in the big 4, don't even think about it.

@mc1 OK. Apparently somebody either got out of the wrong side of the bed today, or realised they are a Deloitte alum.

I had the worst interview experience of my life there. Manager pretty much ripped on me for 30 minutes. I’m sure there are pros though and not all higher ups are like that.

This was around the beginning of 2019, so it’s been a while. It was with the capital markets group and a trading platform. I could’ve sworn it was a BA role but I’m not sure how the hierarchy works exactly. Im 2-3 years into my career, so it was comparable to that level. A recruiter reached out to me, so it wasn’t something I was actively looking at. Anyway I had some related skills with implementations but not the core knowledge with that specific platform. Recruiter thought that was fine. I think the manager was expecting someone more experienced. Maybe they were having a bad day idk. It was clear they had no intention of hiring me 30 seconds into the call. No need to report anyone or anything like that. Stuff happens, this is just my experience as one person so OP shouldn’t put too much stock into it alone. Everyone has diff experiences
