    Pros

    Capital Group is a premiere employer that cares about its clients and its associates. Company core values are taken seriously and can be felt throughout all levels of the organization. There are many opportunities to grow professionally if one is looking to advance their career.

    Cons

    The decision-making process can be quite lengthy.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace telecommuting as an option for more teams/associates.

    Pros

    Well organized group and excellent team staff.

    Cons

    Contractors are treated as contractors, no lines crossed, which can sometimes leave you feeling left out or ill informed.

    Pros

    Benefits are terrific. People are smart and you'll learn a great deal. You'll also be stretched and you'll work very hard.

    Cons

    Decisions take too long. Very challenging to advance from within.

    Kind people in all roles at Capital.

    Hard to change anything in the company.

    I worked at Capital Group

    Pros

    Clean and relatively modern workspace design.

    Cons

    Sterile company culture and campus. Professional, but stuffy atmosphere. You're pretty much working with people who were once sharp blades (not all of them), but are now dull lifers waiting for retirement.

    There's a small handful of associates, I mean full-time employees with smug attitudes only to be further reinforced by CG's culture.

    InfoSys members were surprisingly a breath of fresh air.

    Advice to Management

    Implement 360 degree feedback system.

    not impressed with the way the company treats contractors.

    Whatever.

  11. If you can play by their rules then you have a secured job, otherwise, you're on the fence if you can't keep up

    Pros

    Everyone is an expert with what they do and is very helpful when asked, well not all, but the majority will help.

    Cons

    I heard since they had the layoffs, others are afraid to speak up, leaving the contractors/consultants to fend for themselves. Communication lacks between depts. esp during a lot of internal changes. There's a disconnect from dept to dept. They see it, but they don't talk to each other to resolve it. It's a reactive vs proactive environment. Everyone's so busy to be the change.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt need to hire new faces and experiences who have seen outside of CG then ask for answers within CG of those who worked there 15+yrs.
