Current Employee - Manager in McLean, VA
Current Employee - Manager in McLean, VA

I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-Great work life balance
-Mclean and Richmond offices has good facilities - gym, showers, sauna, bike racks, access to personal trainers 2x/month
-Depending on which team you are on, work can be interesting
-People are passionate about their work
-Lateral moves within the company are easy to do after being in a role for 1 year

Cons

- Very frequent reorgs (every 2-3 years), as a result people get displaced, but company takes good care of them
- Promotion cycle is slow - even with stellar performance, the "who you know" matters for promotions - not a merit based culture
- Low employee morale due to recent cuts
- Options for international mobility are limited as the company is located in the US/UK.
- Raises are poor (1-3%), but bonus are good (remember there is a higher tax on bonuses)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- If your corporate mantra is to have a merit based organization, then execute on it across the company - not in pockets.
- Management needs to have courage to answer the difficult questions with honesty rather than corporate bs.

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is negotiable. Capital One Bank has a great training program for employees to open up and share their common values and goals and where they can succeed in the banking field. Capital One has a career development program where you can take certain steps to achieve your goal and management is willing to help/

    Cons

    Hiring part time only for tellers, Poor career development program, Customers at bank get frustrated due to ATM deposits withdrawal failure. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should reconsider opening a business window. Responsibilities should be shared at every level of work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
