I worked at Capital One full-time

Pros

Cap One is located in Richmond, which is affordable and extremely family friendly. One of the best jobs in the city. Work-life balance (flex hours, vacation) is valued very much, which I loved. Decent salary, with room for promotional bonuses/yearly bonus and salary raises. Terrific employee training.

Cons

Cap One is famous for its junk mail - thus, many hours are spent creating work that many people may just throw in the trash = not inspiring. Processes are often drawn out (it may take 3-6 months to create such a letter). Day to day work can make you feel like cog in machine.

Advice to Management

Keep up - don't let the recession cut out what you did so great five years ago.
