I have been working at Capital One

Pros

Great people to work with, all intelligent and deserve to be there.
Shorter working hours compared to most jobs
Job roles vary from borderline pure marketing to statistical quant type job.
Relaxed working atmosphere in open plan office. Often social events and 'fun days'.
Sometimes large project work, other times quick business cases.
Promotions done merit based
Good pay for location

Cons

Very little work interaction with people in associate level job. May only have 1 or 2 meetings a week and they mainly will be with direct manager.
Feel like sometimes you can't have as large an impact as you might want until you get to manager level (2 promotions up)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great environment, great people, interesting job.
