Former Employee - Portfolio Control Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Capital Group

Pros

Great benefits and salary
Teamwork greatly encouraged and very effectively managed
Management was very communicative & available
Performance reviews were very efficient and well done
Efficiency was a priority, but no one was too stuffy or unreasonable
There were a lot of learning opportunities offered and available within the company; but they also encouraged (and paid for!) learning and charitable activities that took place outside the company.

Cons

Sometimes there was too much discussion and communication.

    Former Employee - Level III IT in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Level III IT in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Capital Group

    Pros

    Very comfortable setting, with many basic food infrastructure (paper plates, plastic ware, snakes, espresso, coffee).
    I felt respect from my direct manager.
    stable environment. Not likely to have something unexpected happen to your job.
    Nice people on my team, helpful and truly good natured people.

    Cons

    Directionless.
    Too many unnecessary meetings.
    Too slow to innovate IT technology
    Too difficult too land a job (if your a contractor), doesn't matter if your good.
    Too much middle management.
    Very little opportunity for growth (at least within the IT departments)
    Strange unspoken strictness, and a lack of natural friendly communication between people (strange polices) and too stuffy (overly conservative).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a tough one because management really doesn't have much choice. But I would ask them to encourage more open dialog with there teams and get more directly involved in what we are doing. They are a bit out of touch to the day to day of what we do. I realize the IT and this company in general are going though a lot of changes but the close feeling I got is not good for any kind of growth.
