Capital Group is a great place to work.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsThe salary and benefits are generous, and there are some truly wonderful and very smart people who work there. As far as corporate jobs go, you don't get much better than Capital. Getting hired is very tough. I went on an endless series of interviews before finally getting the nod.

ConsThe pay is very good, and along with it comes very high expectations. Once you achieve manager or higher, expectations are commensurate with your salary. On the one hand, you can't blame them - they deserve to get their money's worth, and they do. But the pace can be hard to sustain at times. Upper management actively seeks and develops talent, but only if you're lucky enough to be one of the "chosen". If not, it's hard to change perception once it sets in. Overall, you need to be smart and you need to bring your "A" game everyday. Work life balance can be tough at times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Contractors here are treated very badly

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Capital Group as a contractor for more than a year


    Pros: Good work/life balance, people don't work any crazy hours here! Cons: From the perspective of a contractor - in many teams contractors are not in the loop in team meetings and are often ostracized. Associates… Advice to Senior Management: Associates that do not have market level skills should be laid off/fired and replaced with the best person for… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
