I worked at Capital One

Pros

- smart people
- true meritocracy, limited politics
- efficient organization, most things generally work as intended
- profitable, stable

Cons

- credit cards aren't the most inspiring industry!
- sprawling coverage of financial services is increasing bureacracy / complexity
- difficulty keeping entrepreneurial feel

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Credit cards is the successful model - local banking is not, rather than expanding depth in US Fin Svcs should focus on expanding breadth to other credit card markets

    I have been working at Capital One

    Pros

    Management tends to be very flexible and allows for flexible work arrangements, either permanently or on a temporary basis. This included either working a full day from home or a portion. The gym at the main West Creek campus is great, never too crowded, knowledgeable trainers, a 5 minute or less walk from any building...and you can't beat the $15 per month fee.

    Cons

    Some departments are either to advance in than others, and even then it depends on your manager. I know of more than a few people who have been promoted 2+ times since they moved out of my department (within the past 2 years), but yet no one within my department has been promoted at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be super if those within uppermanagement didn't look down on those of us who aren't on the same level as them...we know that you don't want to acknowledge us since you when you walk past us you act like we're not there even if we say hello. If it wasn't for us lowly people doing the actual work, you wouldn't be able to report out "your" data and look so wonderful
