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 Management

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.

    Pros

    some flexibility to work from home, depending on the manager and department, fairly good benefits, salary

    Cons

    inexperienced people promoted to management, lots of young people and they will "clean house" and get rid of people of a certain age (40+) although they claim that's not the case and you will be hard pressed to prove it.

    Advice to Management

    none. they don't listen anyway.
