Just Started

Manager (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Capital One full-time for less than a year

ProsCorporate Values, Work/Life Balance, visibility in the market, competitive pay and awesome opportunity to make incentive, positive culture and atmosphere

ConsOverall everything is great, but company is catching up to some other banks around technology. VERY confident we will catch up and be better in the near future

Advice to Senior ManagementPositive encouragement and continue to remind your people how much you value them. Try not to micro-manage too much with spreadsheets and conference calls, but around results and engagement (customer and team). Capital one hires the best and most talented, so let us continue to shine, by doing what we do best.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Capital One full-time for less than a year

Prosin the onboarding orientation, the company spent almost the entire day going over company history, core values, and culture. Seems to me this company really believes in it.

ConsTypical large organization, lack creativity.

Great place for the inexperienced; few opportunities for advancement

Bank Teller (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

I worked at Capital One as a contractor for less than a year

ProsI got a job as a teller here with less than one year of work experience.
Pay is decent
Managment is generally pretty flexible and doesn't get on your case.

ConsThe company is changing alot and this may cause some uncertainty in the next year. There doesn't seem to be as much of a family feel as there is with other financial companies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

very stressfull

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Capital One

Prosgood benefits, good pay for the market.
good people if you fin d the right team

Conscan't advance without brow-nosing (really this is 2012 this shouldn't happen)

notice how all the people that give good reviews work in the corporate world of CapitalOne which is all roses compare to branches.

need to know the right people to advance very big turn off

Advice to Senior Managementlook at the overall picture when promoting a person, don't write someone up just because they didn't meet one thing from your stupid quotas. and they are stupid sorry.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
