    Contractor at Cap One

    Data Analyst (Former Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsCompetitive pay, flexible schedule, realistic expectations, good experience, plenty of training opportunities. Collaborative work environment, good work/life balance, even ability to work remotely. They were very accommodating with my schedule.

    ConsSomewhat of a division between associates and contractors (which there are a lot of), but if that doesn't bother you, then it's fine. Everyone seems to work well together regardless of affiliation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave to say my managers were very flexible and went out of their way to accommodate my schedule even as a contractor.

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

    Great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery laid back and have great benefits. Managers are very supportive and don't believe in stressing you out. They also have a very nice package if you get laid off.

    ConsSystems aren't very advanced. They don't let you do anything on your own. You have to submit a ticket just to connect to a printer.
