It’s a staff aug shop from what I understand. You join capco, they put their employees in a book of Consultant profiles and have their clients decide who they want. Then you end up working with the client for a long period of time. Also, relative to Deloitte, I know rates are lower

Pretty awful shop.

I’m in security and everyone I spoke to says staff aug. don’t expect strategy or advisory work with them

Same here. Sorry Capco, I wouldn’t leave Accenture for you. I’m still an analyst. Aiming for MBB.

Thank you all this bowl is gold

Same here. Recruiter reached out today. Seems like a mass mailer.

Interesting. Never knew....

Yea they do a ton of staff aug in the FS space. I’ve met one impressive sales guy from there, but in general they seem to be on the lower end of the consulting world.
