    I have been working at CapitalSource full-time

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere, strong management team that knows how to let people do their thing, good comp and benefits though benefits declined a bit after PWB merger. Still acts and feels like a small company even though it is a $15B bank now.

    Cons

    Burdens of being a federally regulated financial institution are annoying and can get in the way of doing good work, but it is not much of a detractor. Could use some formal training resources.

    I worked at CapitalSource full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and even better benefits. The commercial lending service is a solid product I felt good about providing to our clients.

    Cons

    Office politics create a hostile work environment. Managers often speak bad about other employees and other managers to their employees. Employees are encouraged to spy on each other and report back to managers. Yelling at employees in an open forum happened occasionally. Policies would change by verbal announcement by management then reverted six months later or even forgotten that they were changed. No written procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show solidarity in leadership. Pull employees aside to speak to them about problems. Have clear and specific policies and procedures for employees to follow. Don't obviously show favoritism to individual employees.
