Pros

Good benefits, comp, Richmond is cheap and easy to navigate as well as a lot of fun. Cap One has a great campus and tons of young people.

Cons

Its a huge company so standing out, even if you are a rock star, can be tough. Make sure you get in good with your manager and take advantage of all the activities they plan.

    I worked at Capital One

    Pros

    Great benefits, Extensive training for those who don't have previous banking experience

    Cons

    Salary very low
    HR Very unflexible
    They don't look at your resume they just place you in a branch and cannot transfer to another branch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    read the resume before hiring someone and know the benefits they can bring before pressuring about sales

    Current Employee - Senior Operations Analyst in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Capital One

    Pros

    -Decent Pay/Benefits
    -Flexible work arrangements
    -High Quality Co-Workers
    -Nice Facilities
    -Spends money to keep up moral

    Cons

    -People tend to over analyze projects and people can make analysis match the desired outcome
    -Horrible IT (It's a wonder this company is still in business considering how much they rely on IT)
    -Promotions are very political (If you have a manager who won't fight for you then forget about getting promoted. Also, young analyst are promoted based on seniority. Once you have 18 months, you get promoted no matter how much you suck)
    -Good analysts do not necessarily make good managers. People managers should have people skills!
    -Company seems like they do not learn from previous mistakes. They seem to be willing to go down the same path that previously got them in trouble. Especially if their has been a change in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't depend on the data to make every little decision. The data is wrong pretty often or it can be molded to support any decision. Do a better job of promoting the best people which will help retain top talent.
