Current Employee - AREA SALES MANAGER in Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent income, stock options, profit share, and medical.

Cons

Their culture is moving away from allowing salespeople to work to their own strengths in favor of cloning processes that are in place for their benefit, not yours. It's a good 'ol boys club as well so some extent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow more "art" in the sales process. Simply account planning and stop micro managing.

    Current Employee - Senior Coordinator in Richmond, VA
    Current Employee - Senior Coordinator in Richmond, VA

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment and colleagues. Very strong corporate culture of support and development. Numerous opportunities for enrichment.

    Cons

    Very little guidance for advancement and career tracks. Too much reliance on contractor support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cost of hiring and training contractors for non-project/end-date type positions is a waste of money and company resources, as well as associate time and energy in constantly training and retraining different individuals. A more rigorous new-hire screening would be helpful.
