Too much work, not enough pay, and little opportunity to advance

Senior Coordinator (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than a year

ProsNice facilities, good people overall, benefits from day 1, and the vacation time is better than most.

ConsSalary is very low considering the amount of work required. Work/life balance is often talked out, but nearly impossible to put into practice. Bonuses and promotions are awarded based on being a favorite of leadership rather than education, experience, or performance. The most vocal get rewarded regardless of actual performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership should pay more attention to performance and make more of an effort to be fair and unbiased.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
