    I have been working at CapitalSource full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed, but growing and exciting deal environment with little direct non CBT training, and a huge awesome legacy from former CEO Delaney that is being destroyed by new Senior Mgmt.

    Cons

    Recently removed great benefits such as catered lunch and other Employee respectful and rewarding extras.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to John D's approach of 'don't go cheap' in regards to Employees and Processes.

    I worked at CapitalSource full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, interesting coworkers, and nice office space. Hours are very reasonable. Not a difficult job.

    Cons

    Lack of communication about strategic vision from upper management. Feel like a cog in the wheel too often and lacks development programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees so they want to stay. Way too often you see your colleagues leaving for better opportunities when they would have stayed for more responsibility or money.

    I have been working at CapitalSource as an intern for less than a year

    Everyone is very friendly and wiling to help out. It is a very casual environment without much stress. There is also free catered lunch every day and a nice array of snacks available at all times, along with a gym and locker room.

    Cons

    Not very fast-paced, or much excitement, if you're seeking a challenging job.
