Featured Review

Current Employee - Content Specialist

I have been working at Aquent full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good support and a great group of people who are extremely professional but value work life balance. There is a feeling of security.

Cons

Training was a little rocky at times, wish there was more PTO

Former Employee - Senior Manager, Product Manager

I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

True customer focus through all levels of management. Everyone is collaborating with the customers' best interests at heart. As a product manager I got to partner with designers, business analysts,... data engineers, and of course my tech teams of 4-7 software engineers. Auto loans is organized into "experiences," each focused on a different phase of the customer's journey, and product managers get a high level of autonomy to develop new features and improve processes. My projects were engaging. People across job families were engaged in their work, smart, collaborative, and really nice. Also we're a good mix of a tech company and a bank: product and technology are at the focus of the company, but you still get banking holidays and log out at 5pm every day. I was in auto loans in the Plano campus.

Cons

There is a high level of change: I had 5 managers in the last 12 months. That's higher than average, but everyone seems to change managers at least once a year if not twice; either because the... manager gets moved to a different team or because you do. My projects tended to get changed frequently as well: partway through a project, leadership would change the objective and ask us to focus on a different goal, abruptly stopping a 6- or 12-month project halfway through without us delivering anything. That happened enough to my projects and other product managers' to become a pattern. This all combines to a frustrating level of change when you have really interesting projects and would love to get them out to customers. My advice would be to start coding an MVP as quickly as possible so you can at least deliver something before priorities shift.
