    I have been working at Capital Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vacations and Holiday pay, , insurance is decent, 401k, learning experience, I don't really have anything else to add, a great starter bank

    Cons

    Constant turnover in employees, there motto to employees should be hurry hurry hurry don't screw up, being constantly short staffed makes our job more difficult and we can't take time to help our customers efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. We work HARDER than anyone realizes.

    I worked at Capital Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health Benefits were comprehensive, 3.5 weeks PTO, Immediate management was very like-able and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Demanding schedule, used all my PTO on "mental health days." Constantly changing rules and policy, messy transitions with banks being acquired. This was the most stressful job I've ever had, one day you're following procedure, the next day there is a new policy and hundreds of loans have to all be corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in decent software. Using outdated systems means more manual labor, which means more mistakes. In the end, you lose money when there isn't decent software available.

    I worked at Capital Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Please stay away from this company.

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible working conditions, uncaring and horrible upper management, bank trying to get by with practically no staffing and very poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Try some honesty, integrity and valuing your hard working staff.

    I have been working at Capital Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent IT work environment, management is good for the top down. Great location, downtown Raleigh. Good vendor support when needed

    Cons

    Lists of demands on a small team. To many technologies with no true SMEs. A lot of fires to put out all the time so it's hard to be proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good changes. The teams are getting closer and that is helping with moral. Also I think more team bondI got is needed.

    Pros

    Not afraid to try new things.
    Does solicit feedback from employees.
    Many opportunities to train, train, and train some more.

    Cons

    Zero commitment to long term customer relationships.
    No hesitation to throw you under the bus.
    Sales goals are exponentially unachievable.
    Major metro markets may have same sales goals as one-red light towns.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing "he who dies with the most banks wins".
    Recognize the differences in your markets.
    Don't hang a guillotine over your employees heads.

    Pros

    There are NO Pros with this Bank

    Cons

    Under NO circumstances should anyone that is concerned about their career work for this "train wreck" of a bank. Everything is a CON: Management(horrendous like none I've ever seen), systems, training, tools of the job, on and on and on. Truly a nightmare...please don't even interview at this bank. You will want to quit after 1 week. Do yourself a favor and look at any bank except this one!

    Advice to Management

    There are no words.....

    Paid on time. Step stone job.

    Cons

    Poor management, no vision, didn't care at all about employees. No culture, no work life balance, no foresight.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves with people who are competent at their jobs.

    I worked at Capital Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Banking Holidays (nothing else just need to reach my word limit to post this, hold on almost there, ok perfect)

    Cons

    Low Pay, benefits are expensive, 401k matching is basically nonexistent (ironic for a bank), overall cheap company, and bad working culture

    Advice to Management

    I have worked with and got along with people from all different walks of life and never felt like more of an outcast until I arrived at Capital Bank. Unless you're an ex-fraternity boy or country club member, there is zero opportunity for growth. Diversity? Forget about it. Team atmosphere? Yeah right. Do yourself a favor and keep scrolling when you see any of their job postings.
