I worked at Capital Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Good salary
- Company has a giving culture, really cares about the community
- upper mgmt was accessible, but one has to be aggressive to access them.
- Very nice retirement plan

Cons

- Lacking a meritocratic culture (outside the investment group)
- Far too many middle managers to be efficient
- Too much bureaucracy
- Not enough work place flexibility; my job could have been done from anywhere in the world with hi-speed internet, but I still had to sit in a cubicle 10 hrs a day
- Not much in the way of internal development for associates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move to more flexible work options. The digital age has untethered us so I think it makes sense to untether your employees from the cubicle. Also, loyalty is great but you really need to have a meritocracy in order to keep the best and brightest. Offer the same kind of development to all associates that is offered to associates in the TAP program. Leverage more of your human capital by instituting open forums for problem solving bigger company issues. Management does not have a monopoly on strategic thinking.

    I worked at Capital Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    pays well, decent benefits, nice campus

    Cons

    no socializing, no talking, no laughing, no enjoyment. If you are the stereotype accountant - you will love this place. If you have an inkling of a personality - run!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    loosen up, its work - not the end of the world

    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.
