Pretty good company in general but office politics and big egos are rampant

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

Pros

Generous benefits - time off, 6% match on 401k, mostly flexible with work/life balance but it can depend on your job type

Cons

Lots of favoritism abounds, promotions and appraisals are geared more towards how showy and glorified your personal projects are and how much of a type A personality you have rather than the substance of your work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing I can offer. Capital One's problems are typical of any large corporation and will not change in this lifetime.

    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Fair advancement potential
    - Great career-training and competency development opportunities
    - Encouraging of diversity, to a large extent

    Cons

    - Team environments and/or project-team environments often felt very finger-pointed in nature, vs. a true sense of genuine collaboration I've seen since employed there.
    - Emphasis on perfecting weaknesses vs. fostering development of strengths.
    - Certain satellite offices or sub-groups within organization don't get same bonus-perks as other teams (i.e. quarterly offsite team-building activities, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although I emerged with a very strong work ethic and work background from my time with this company, encouraging the development of employees' strengths vs. obsessing about their weaknesses gives a level of confidence, enthuiasm, and motivation that I have witnessed work miracles at other organizations, but for some reason the opposite is employed here. I do think that it forges a well-rounded employee coming out of a long-term position here, however strengths were almost hard to identify after moving on to a new organization, given the constant chaotic focus on weaknesses at this company.
