Pros

There are a lot of great development opportunities within the company and benefits that support education such as tuition reimburement and budget for training. The culture was very progressive and there is still a sense of this.

Cons

Recent leaderhisp changes are causing the culture to become more like a traditional corporation which is stifling the passion of all the employees.

    Inconsistencies everywhere

    Pros

    Benefits, compensation and paid time off.

    Cons

    Inconsistency in treatment of employees - favoritism runs rampant, and those who kiss up really do get ahead, while those who knuckle down and work hard are passed over. Also, inconsistency between departments is appalling. While COF has been recognized by Working Mother, I have only known 1 person in 3 departments who has been able to work a flexible schedule. In my current department, I was turned down flat without any reasoning why, and the person who was allowed just gets promoted more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at who is promoted and why. Too many people with poor leadership abilities and people skills are promoted and they shouldn't be managing people.

    Know what you are getting into, and have a plan to move on - you could be laid off at anytime.

    Pros

    Decent pay, and you can learn a lot if you are in the right areas. There are some very smart people here, so it's important to leverage their knowledge and expertise.

    Cons

    A lot of hours, and job security is basically zero. But you find that almost anywhere nowdays. Unfortunately Cap One has a habit of making aquisitions and then shutting that business unit down after a couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up our public image. A lot of our products are not well respected, and we've created a tremendous amount of dissatisfaction among customers.
