I have been working at Capital One part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Compared to some other banks, the pay is good because some other banks don't pay you a monthly incentive for sales goals (i.e. Regions). But Capital One is much quicker to fire it's employees over the simplest thing.

Cons

Management is given too much power. There aren't rules that apply across the board. Managers are given a lot of discretion, so different branches do different things. You can easily lose your job over one simple, honest mistake. They only care about you harrassing and kissing up to the customers to meet your sales goals which ranges from a $35-$120 monthly incentive that is taxed. All the stalking and butt kissing you have to do to reach the goals is not worth it. They treat you like a number or product, not a person/employee. Basically, go to work, do your job, and be sure to dot all i's and cross all t's. And try not to NEVER be late or miss more than 4 days of work for being sick (a year) because they will fire you!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try complimenting your employees for what they do right instead of always focusing on what they can do better.

    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.

    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.
