    I worked at Capital One full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well-run company at the top of the house - strategy will keep them out of big trouble in the industry
    Extremely bright folks work there, making every day intellectually challenging
    Pay and benefits are very good

    Cons

    Company has lost some of its "fun" atmosphere and is now more like a stodgy bank
    Re-orgs happen too frequently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more organizational stability - moving executives across functions so frequently creates risk through lack of experience

    Pros

    Very sound business strategy; smart employees; Exec Mgmt. puts their money where their mouth is in supporting key initiatives; strategic and operational focus is on long term objectives, not just the next quarter's numbers

    Cons

    Very process oriented, decision making is slow due to highly matrixed org structure, pay is very formula driven, org structure is bloated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline decision making and strategy ownership to enable quicker decision making and time to market
