good culture but low compensation and career oppotunity

Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Washington, DC

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

Pros

Work environment/culture is very good. Friendly and smart coworkers. No bad competition involved. Relatively flexible work style, but highly depending on your job role.

Cons

Compensation is relatively low for similar job roles. You should expect to be busy most of the times. Many people leave after a couple years for higher title and compensation.

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

    Current Employee - Senior Coordinator in Richmond, VA

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Salary 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 ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should pay more attention to performance and make more of an effort to be fair and unbiased.

    Current Employee - Tech Lead/IT Manager in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits - 7.5% match on 401K (on base and bonus), 1K match on FSA, Discounted stock purchase program.
    Flexibility, open work space, Wi-Fi at work lets you work from anywhere you want in and around the building.
    Really smart intelligent colleagues who make it a great place to work. You are always challenged and motivated for that reason.
    The company is always doing the right thing for the employees/associates. (eg: they pay bonuses even when they didn't make much money or had layoffs and doesn't make that an excuse for cutting down on benefits).
    With the acquisitions of ING Direct and HSBC Cards, growing even more and unlike most other financial companies is well managed and growing, but very carefully with a bright future ahead.
    One of the rare places where I have seen things work the way they are supposed to and if not, you could find a way to work to get that changed.

    Cons

    The performance management system is good overall, but the forced ranking system can be painful. Not sure what can be a better option here, but good to think about it.
    Lots of type A people which can sometimes be annoying.
    Good individual contributors get promoted to people managers which sometimes leads to lack of focus on coaching/mentoring, but rather the people managers just trying to continue to be good individual contributors at their new level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job overall, but please find a way to fix the performance management system.
