I worked at Capital One full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits, good work life balance. There is a lot of consideration and thought given to the work environment which makes going to the office relatively comfortable.

Cons

Some managers do not know how to manage. They take the approach of "I'm always right and you just need to accept that" and they are not open to discussion or an alternate view.

Advice to Management

Watch how you treat minorities, race, age, gender you say we appreciate diversity but my manager certainly did not.

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. Most of the people are very intelligent; but the type of intelligence where they need a whiteboard to explain their point.

    Cons

    I found the company's values to be quite sketchy. Trying to push customers with a 500 FICO into expensive car loans seems like a selfish way to earn a profit. Also, the corporate environment was extremely sterile (the most of any company that I have worked for) and terse. Lastly, I didn't think that the training provided was sufficient in my particular line of work.

    Slow moving company. Great for people who are okay with status quo.

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance Decent benefits Relatively good people to work with

    Cons

    Management is so slow that decisions never get made and competition is passing the company Most jobs are booring due to the over "importance" of analysis (aka analysis paralysis) Employee motivation is relatively low Profit is the "end-all be-all" for everything

    Advice to Management

    Focus on thriving your digitally savvy and future-looking businesses.... our Senior Mgmt thinks too much like a bank from the past and not enough like an industry leader.
