Pros

Capital One encourages work life balance. You work with highly intelligent people. Very entrepreneurial...all decisions are based on data. Not afraid to try new things...if it fails, you learn from your mistake and move on

Cons

I have been in a similar role for a long time...we are starting to grow now so should be promotion opps again after the economic slow down

    Pros

    Decent place to work with good salary and benefits like $1000 match on FSA, 7.5% 401K match, Stock purchase program etc. Great benefits in case of layoffs. Good work/life balance. Convenient location and conveniences like gym and nurse practitioner on site.

    Cons

    They try to hire really good people based on aptitude, but not enough focus on technical skills. A very competitive culture that fosters distrust and people always doing this for visibility and getting good points for year end appraisal. Forced rankings in the year end performance process. In IT, too many people who talk a lot and come up with list of bullet points, but very few people who understand technology and can help when there are problems. In IT, too many managers who seem more interested in climbing the corporate ladder, but lack any strong technical background.

    Advice to Management

    In IT, please recruit people for technical skills and promote those who can be good people managers with a good technical background, rather than depending on outsourced companies for everything.

    Pros

    Capital One respects diversity, provides an opportunity to work with multiple vendors and suppliers. The compensation is competitive. They are also supportive of flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Being a financial company, IT is a support function, and so jobs in the business (such as Business Analysts, statisticians, operations analysts) are good, but IT is not that great. Opportunities to learn new technologies are not consistent. Promotions are somewhat arbitrary.
