I have been working at Capital One

Pros

Very smart people, Good locations to live (Richmond/McLean), Strong balance sheet (very little mortgage exposure from the crisis)

Cons

Employees work long hours for below average compensation especially for specialized finance/technical roles (one or the other probably needs to go). Senior/Mid-level management have very little traditional banking experience (and a tendency to try to reinvent the wheel)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the compensation issue if you want to be able to retain or attract high caliber, experienced capital markets/banking talent. Recognize that sometimes you need experienced hires rather than trying to plug in 'smart' rising stars into businesses they have no experience with

    Pros

    Capital One has a distinct culture, which focuses on truth seeking behavior and strong analytics. They are not a company that is focused on prestige of position, leading by tenure, etc.

    Cons

    Capital One has a distinct culture that may not be suitable for everyone. If you cannot adapt or do not like their way of doing things, they are unlikely to adapt to your ways.
