I have been working at Capital Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, paid vacation, great work environment, great co-workers

Cons

The work is tedious and you will be answering phones for 8 hours a day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to what the bottom rung associates have to say. It shouldn't all be about "business needs".

    Former Employee - Senior Accountant Analyst in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Capital Group full-time (more than an 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.
