Pros

Capital One has an incredible dedication to your personal and career development. Senior leadership spends significant time coaching, mentoring, etc. They are very supportive of rotations to various parts of the company to continue to learn new areas and skills even at the expense of efficiency at times.

Cons

The culture and type of work has shifted over time as the bank has grown. The company used to always be about growth/innovation and had retained part of its start up culture roots for a long time. More recently the focus has shifted to mostly regulatory/compliance and well managed work and the culture has gotten a bit stuffier. That being said its still an amazing place to work and to launch a career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to hold on to the aspects that made the company fun in the past to maintain associate morale and attract the right type of enthusiastic and passionate employees. Just because we're in the highly regulated banking industry doesn't mean we need to lose all the good talent to google, Facebook, etc.

    Pros

    Onsite gym, the ability to work from home, great co-workers

    Cons

    Super political environment, nepotism, and poor leadership in the mid levels. Managers will use assorted data to hide behind making any true managerial decisions. There is a hiring freeze in Richmond, making mobility very difficult. Capital One cannot stay out of the news with their shady business practice. The work from home option really just means you are going to be working about 12 more hours than you would in a normal work environment every week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Politics and popularity trump results. Listen to your associate surveys and quit punishing those who answer truthfully on them
