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.

    Pros

    *All decisions are weighed against the company mission to do the right thing. Like the Golden Rule, it may create complications, it is also fundamentally clear, simple, direct and self-evident in problem-solving.
    *The guiding cultural principal of PWE, Positive Workplace Environment (which I like to call Pweh, in honor of Mel Brooks), actually works at Capital One - discouraging gossip, and bullying, and all the petty little squabbles that undermine team-building.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are stable and reliable -- but only slightly above average. In the pursuit of excellence, compensation should more accurately reflect the excellence we seek.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a great deal of appreciation for a job well done, outstanding performance, and meeting metrics -- and that's great

    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.
