I have been working at Capital Group full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great company; loved my co-workers! I think I lucked out though.

Cons

Impossible to get hired into as a temp to perm......no such thing. Max work time is one year.

    I worked at Capital Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Troops on the ground want to do the right thing
    Good compensation
    Nice facilities and physical environment
    Pleasant colleagues

    Cons

    In some pockets, vendors have stronger influence than associates
    Lacks strategic vision: seems to be following other players in the industry rather than innovating
    Several layers of management and very outdated technology makes it almost impossible at times to get work done
    Due to many years of micromanagement, very difficult to transfer and share tribal knowledge between groups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to line managers and associates to understand what is really going on. There is a risk that talented individual contributors will leave as the economy improves leaving behind mostly "yes" people

    Negative Outlook
