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

Pros

Great, intelligent, motivated employees. Compelling and impactful work. Extremely strong developmentally based culture. Little internal politics (but there is some).

Cons

At times self select to work long hours -- management chain will stay on sidelines while it occurs. At times can feel cyclic within staff functions. Upper management's concept of easy versus difficult in relation to other tasks is at time non-existent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strongly push the legacy culture into new acquisitions sooner then later. Empower HR to better integrate acquisitions and push retention decision points closer to the legal day one time period, versus dragging it on.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Agile methodology is not productive on all projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most managers know what they are doing, some rely on being fed by team members. Sr. Managers need to be more involved and be connected with their teams
