    I have been working at American Capital full-time (more than 5 years)


    * Provides a flexible work environment. The emphasis is on delivering, not on what time you are sitting at your desk.
    * State of the art IT infrastructure and software
    * I would put their compensation levels in the 90th percentile based on my experience
    * Performance expectations are very high, but so are the salaries, with nice perks and benefits
    * Friendly, cooperative work culture


    None I can think of, honestly. It's a great place to work. There are probably people here who are tough to work with but you find that everywhere.

    Interview Details

    Hired through a recruiting firm. Came in for two rounds of interviews and met with the same hiring manager both times. They said the director was too busy during the second round interview. Basic interview questions. The building was very modern and nice. The recruiting agency handled most of the communication and salary discussions.
