    I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. amazing corporate structures and work/life balance.
    2. PLENTY to learn.
    3. Fantastic templates for anyone to pick up and learn
    4. Great internal roles to diversify if desired
    5. Helpful coworkers

    Cons

    1. Cap One purchased HSBC's credit card portfolio and kept the whole group in the dark when mapping roles.
    2. Upper management is focused on just completing Integration projects and get turned on with "Agile" where it does not always work.
    3. Job is stable but FORGET getting promotions every year. a 3% increase in base pay(less than inflation) is not exciting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. provide hard core certifications that can be completed within a week, PMP, CBAP, ITIL, SAP BI, TOGAF
    2. Directors need to focus on giving subordinates motivation vs just getting the job done.

    Pros

    Capital One is a great company with great benefits, extremely diverse and offers flexible work schedules. I was totally impressed with the management and how much they value their employees and their strengths.

    Cons

    I really can not think of any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once again nothing negative, I guess I would say to keep encouraging employees by offering training and leadership and great rewards.
