Consulting Firm Bio: Capco

Has anyone heard of this firm? I saw in the search function someone spoke on this company, but very little was offered and the internet is not helping either. Their company is suppose to deal with financial services firms so maybe you monkeys have heard of them. Any information is appreciate. Also, someone mentioned that in between projects if something else doesn't come along you would get laid off. They also said that the salary is based on the project you are working on. Is this common practice? It sounds like a temp company. www.Capco.com

Usually it's a straight salary, sign on bonus and performance bonus.

An "upcoming boutique" is one who is founded by a former secretary of treasury, an ex-goldman president, or a UBS rainmaker, NOT by a dude who looks like a sexual predator and isn't even prestigious enough to list his alma mater in his bio.

maybe up & coming boutique is the wrong choice of words, what I meant is what could this firm be offering that Mckinsey/Accenture folks are leaving their firms for this place?

capco is a tech consulting firm specifically catering to fin. service industry...i doubt they are taking guys away from any top consulting firms, from what i hear its all guys who have been laid off from bearing point...they may compete on some contracts/jobs, but lets be honest nobody knows of them from my understanding

Anybody know anything more about them, people that work there, etc.?
