Extremely political environment.

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

ProsCompetitive salary, willing to invest in order to grow.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementCapital 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
