I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people. Great business models. Probably one of the best banks in the world.

Cons

Not a cultural fit for everyone. While you do get to work with great people, sometimes these same people feel like they have to review everything and provide input into every solution which doesn't work in all cases and actually causes things to move very slow.

Advice to Management

Trust your people. Empower your people managers.

    I worked at Capital One as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good hands on experience. You're given your own project to work on, but also given the resources necessary to assist. Not overly demanding so it still feels like you have your summer, but still a "real" work experience. - Opportunities to hear from upper management and people who have come from all walks. - Sessions to teach to you about presentations, public speaking, etc. - A very high rate of interns (80%+) receive generous job offers at the end of their internship

    Cons

    Corporate infrastructure will get in the way some times; IT can be slow, you'll find yourself in unnecessary meetings, etc. This is more of a systemic problem relating to companies of this size than Capital One specifically, though.


  2. Great company to work for, but highly competitive

    I worked at Capital One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Analytically rigorous culture makes for an intellectually challenging place to work. Great development program for young analysts. The West Creek campus is a lovely place to have an office as well. Lots of opportunities to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    Performance review cadence can lead to backbiting. While work/life balance is often touted, this varies greatly depending on the culture of the specific team you're on.
