Capco consultants thrive on firm’s unique culture and driving client transformation

Capco, a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, announced today that the firm has been named to Consulting magazine’s “Best Firms to Work For” list for 2010. Consultants from 200 firms world-wide participated in the survey, with 15 of the top ranked firms making it to the final list.

“We have been purposefully building an organization focused on openness and excellence”, said Mr. McKelvey, Capco’s Global Chief Operating Officer and Leader of the firm’s North America practice. “We welcome the best practitioners and provide an open platform from which they can succeed and pursue excellence on our client’s behalf. We were very pleased to be recognized by Consulting magazine’s industry-leading survey for our efforts.”

Capco excelled in the categories of “job” and “culture”, which are highlighted in the survey. The job category reflects the quality and value of work consultants perceive their firm is doing. One of Capco’s key differentiators is that consultants have the opportunity to execute satisfying end-to-end projects, including advisement, strategy and technology consulting, which ultimately create meaningful change for clients.

Within Consulting’s culture category, the magazine looked at the shared values, standards, ethics and goals of each firm. Here, Capco’s high ranking is the result of its idea-driven culture. Said McKelvey, “Forget bureaucracy, if you have a killer idea, Capco will run with it.”

Nearly 8000 consultants responded to Consulting’s 2010 survey. In order to achieve placement on the final list, consultancies were ranked within 6 categories covering the key aspects of being a Best Firm, including: job, culture, leadership, career development, work/life balance and compensation and benefits.
