    Pros

    Associates are encouraged to "Live the values" by volunteering in the community, helping others internally, and giving back to open source projects.

    Capital One fosters technical development with ample growth opportunities and encouragement to take ownership of your own development.

    The pay is very competitive. The benefits are comprehensive including very generous 401k automatic contribution and matching.

    Cons

    It's challenging to "Live the values" by helping others and being selfless while also endorsing yourself to be competitive in cross-calibration for performance management.

    Pros

    They bring on people that they think will fit in to the friendly culture. The result is a pretty relaxed workplace. There are no horror stories about how the company turned its back on employees. You generally get the sense that you're working with good people who care about you and the work.

    Cons

    Only a handful of teams/roles are able to work with cutting edge technology. A lot of the work is uninspiring and low-visibility, which can lead to a career plateau.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more visibility into performance management.
