Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX

I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Top notch talent sourced from the best colleges and industries. Very open culture - individual opinion matters and not very hierarchical when it comes to sharing feedback/ideas on projects. Very results focus.

Cons

Constantly changing agenda/strategy. You will be unique if you have the same manager for more than 6 months. Re-organizations are very common.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stabilize and execute..

    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.
