Former Employee - Principal Associate in Richmond, VA

I worked at Capital One full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

People are great, salary & benefits good. Telecommute/flex time a big plus. Great campus, lots of freedom.

Cons

Performance Management is a disgrace. Promotions based on popularity and how good your manager is at presenting you in discussions. Decisions already made in advance of "360 feedback".

Very political. Pretty young college girls do well and move up, but veterans suffer. Lots of cliques.I did upper-level work for 3 years and never got the offical promotion (or pay).

Much talk about "open culture" and diversity of thought -- but be vocally opposed to something and you're banished from the kingdom.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't play with your people. Get rid of the politics. You have so many talented, smart people there -- stop screwing with them. Oh, and watchdog your ethics too.

    A bit of a Class system... Business Analyst are put on a pedestal and everyone else is basically a second class citizen. Can be difficult to advance without the right degree from the right college.
