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

Pros

The majority of the associates are incredibly smart and driven. Salaries and benefits are good -- the vacation is especially generous, but it can be hard to find time to take it.

Cons

Performance management pits employees against each other, and takes up 2-3 months every year. If you're willing to put in a lot of work over and above your normal role, you can get promoted, but the bar rises every year.

The culture is very meeting-based; it's common to find yourself without a spare minute all day, and then you still have to do your "real work."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of mixed messages -- the campus was blanketed with banners and signs about the company mission just days after a layoff was announced.

    Pros

    Capital One is a decent paymaster

    Cons

    The organizations is constantly going through change. It does not let people settle down or establish long term career development goals. There are just too many people doing small components of the work, with very few understanding the end to end picture or the overall issues. It can easily downsize to 1/3 of their size if they operate in a logical, structured manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of 50% of the management team. Get in a team that will tie all the different components together and provide one view to the client/customer. Things are in a mess and people are confused about what they are doing.
