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

    Great training program, easy systems to learn, management that care about your growth, flexible work hours, great benefits, and great team environment.

    Cons

    Job advancement can be difficult passed certain management levels. Company looks outside to fill major job roles instead of looking within. There is also a constant shift in strategic initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on less initiatives and create more internal job opportunities.
