Current Employee - Senior Director in McLean, VA

I have been working at Capital One full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Collaborative culture - the focus is on solving the business problem and achieving a great result as a team, rather that individually
Very smart people, analytically-driven, intellectually rigorous
Young, energetic workforce
Competitive pay
Lots of opportunity for upward and lateral movement
Good work-life flexibility, openness to working from home sometimes

Cons

The degree of analysis and collaboration often slows decision-making
Strategies change rapidly, sometimes without sufficient time to see one course of action to conclusion
Long hours - everyone works very hard and very long - tends to be later nights rather than early mornings

    Pros

    good training resources; nice campus

    Cons

    Tons of politics!!! The leaders are just using people, never care about their development. If you want a promotion, you have to ask and ask -- but you will never get it if you are not in the same club as your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote good people. Find a way to keep good people motivated.

    Pros

    Ambitious Bank that is trying to grow itself as quick as possible.

    Keeping same senior management for at least 2 years for stability would be nice.
