I worked at Capital Group full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-Great culture where all Associates are treated with respect.
-Highly competitive compensation package (bonuses, merit & MRP)
-Good work/life balance

Cons

-Highly bureaucratic organization structure
-Bureaucratic structure has led to limited or no upward mobility
-Key decisions are not made swiftly leading to inefficiency and "analysis paralysis"
-Within the Global Institutional Operations (GIO) team, poor portfolio performance led to layoffs and office consolidations
-Elimination of 9/80 work schedule in some business units

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CG is a tremendous company with a storied history and strong fair culture. However, the increasing bureaucracy, inefficiency and lack of upward mobility should be cause for management concern as it is adversely impacting employee morale.

    Pros

    Capital Group offers a great benefits package and places great value on work/life balance - they are progressive when it comes to employee satisfaction in these areas

    Cons

    While they offer the great benefits, there does not seem to be a lot of room for advancement, from the ground up, within the company.
