Pros

Capital One is one of the best places to start a career, because they place a lot of value on development and training. Campus recruiting starts new hires in an Analyst Development Program that trains job specific skills and provides an avenue to network with peers for the first year at the company.

Cons

While the job as a package is very attractive to college graduates just starting out, it is sometimes difficult for Capital One to deliver on its description of job role at the company. Business analysts are supposed to drive in market strategy, but are sometimes used as a "jack-of-all-trades" to do less intelectually stimulating jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expend more effort getting externally hired executives integrated with the performance management system and core values. New executives tend to come in with unrealistic expectations that can lead to overwork and discontent.

    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits at least

    Cons

    360 reviews guarantee that good work is not rewarded, being a nice guy and getting along is. As long as you give the perception that you're working, you do fine. IT staff is mostly outsourced and treated like serfs; their input is not valued. Ideas are only good if they come from COF corporate employees. Not from employees from acquired companies, not from contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you acquire good companies, take Warren Buffet's advice and leave them alone, don't dismantle them and replace them with people who know nothing about the business.

    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive pay, and excellent opportunities for career advancement. If you enjoy banking and interacting with customers this is a great job for you.

    Cons

    Poor management and bureaucratic elements abound. Although management may be lacking, they generally leave you to your own devices if you stay off the radar and do your work.
