Pros

Talented, dedicated, competitive people who are selected for the power of their ideas. The people that excel there are truly deserving and every day I realize how exceptional the people that work here are.

Cons

the super-competitive people that Capital One hire are graded on how well they cooperate with others, then put into a super-competitive 360 review/forced ranking process that amplifies small errors.

Advice to Management

Embrace diversity of approaches and be concerned more with outcomes than process.

    Pros

    Easy workloads, so work life balance is very easy to achieve
    Good benefits
    Nice work environments
    You'll meet some really great people

    Cons

    The company has grown fast. But, the traditional and limited real world experience of its large Richmond employee base has not been able to keep pace. Mind sets are slow to evolve and there's a total lack of real experience, but a mindset that they think they are great and better than everyone around. A company who grew up in Richmond has to grow up and out of its old ways of thinking or it will be taken over by the likes of smarter and better players like The Wall Street banks.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to what good people and great talent tells you. Internalize it and make changes. Avoid organizational hubris at all costs.

  2. Great Company to start banking career!

    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 Management

    Focus on less initiatives and create more internal job opportunities.
