Current Employee - Senior Business Manager in McLean, VA

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

Pros

Brilliant people, good opportunity for advancement on BA track, good benefits

Cons

If you aren't a business analyst, I don't understand why you would work here. The career trajectory for other job families is slow. As such, the talent outside of BA is not strong

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, willing to invest in order to grow.

    Cons

    There is a huge gulf between what Leadership says and what actually happens in the company. Leadership messaging is all too often directly contradicted by line managers. Rewards are based on each manager's individual goals, so leadership vision has no bearing on their priorities. Conflicts abound, and the people that come out ahead tend to be the ones that have the biggest 'win at all costs' outlook, and are willing to circumvent policies and procedures in order to do it. Easily the most political environment I have ever worked in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Capital One needs to grow up. This is no longer a small start up company, it is now one of the biggest banks in the US and needs to start acting like it. In the regulatory environment we are in, we can no longer afford to blindly believe we are different, and that the normal rules do not apply to us. They do. And we have a rude awakening coming if we do not accept that.
