Pros

None at this time, cant think of anything that is wrong. The job is fun, people are great and there is opportunity for growth

No downsides. Some people can work from home and others are not able to. . It all depends on the type of work you are doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work and valuing the employees by on giving on the spot awards and making the workplace great.

    I have been working at Capital One

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent, driven people
    Ability to move around from job to job - which can be unrelated to previous experience (moves are based on skill level, but there's a downside because people can take highly specialized positions without prior experience)
    In some areas of the company - great flexibility with work schedule, hours, location - 'future of work' modality

    Cons

    Salaries and benefits decreased over time to accommodate becoming a bank vs. credit card company,
    Performance management process is cumbersome
    Success depends on manager who will fight for you
    Inconsistencies in 'flexible work' environment - vary from department to department and individual to individual
    Some legacy employees who joined Capital One when very young are still young and in very (too) senior positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain better consistency of flexible work environment throughout the organization
    Stop compromising the level of health benefits provided to employees

    Pros

    some departments allow flexible work schedules
    good benefit and pay
    casual dress
    nice facilities on campus
    4 weeks vacation

    Cons

    office politics
    feedback/review process
    stress level high
    lots of Type A personalities
    lack of work flexibility in most departments, even though they claim they offer telecommuting opportunities
    extreme emphasis on six sigma even in cases where it doesn't make much sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    relax on the "butts in seats" rule and allow more flexible work arrangements. You'll see happier, more productive employees, and you'll save money by not having to build yet another building or parking lot to accomodate all your employees.
