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 Management

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

    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 Management

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


  2. Smart , respectful people, respectful, but too busy & too many meetings

    Pros

    Smart, motivated coworkers and lots of recognition/praise for a job well done. Intelligent and smart leadership, generally making good decisions. Great benefits (vacation, flex time, work from home - sometimes). Great facilities. Interesting work. Great training classes.

    Cons

    Too much work - many at the Manager + level work 55-65 hours a week. They say they support working from home, but typically only on Fridays. Too many meetings where phone calls/emails/IM could suffice. Too many meetings mean not enough time for work. Performance management process intense and cumbersome; too complex. Expect that once you get in, you'll be at that level for 3-5 years - hard to get promoted. Not as many options for promotion/advancement as you think unless you are Sr Mgr+ and are willing to leave your line of business.

    Advice to Management

    Really stand behind your support of flexible hours/working from home. With commute times sky high and gas prices rising, let associates work from home. Face time not always necessary; meetings via phone, videoconference can suffice.
