    I have been working at Capital Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Capital Group is a rare organization that practices what it preaches. If you are willing to put in the effort to improve yourself while delivering value to the organization , you will be recognized and rewarded. This is not hard to do. Be your true self, learn the ropes, stay true to the CG core values, and the career upsides are there!

    Cons

    Probably the one con is that limited number of internal openings if you are very specialized in your approach to work. If you are willing to learn and grow the upsides can be there. You have to manage your career first and foremost.

    I have been working at Capital Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Capital Group is filled with extremely talented employees who are motivated and forward-thinking. Capital has a strong positive culture that values respect for the individual and collaboration, which make it is less cut-throat than other financial services firms. hey offer an outstanding compensation package, including very generous bonuses and an employee retirement plan that is second to none. Would highly recommend working there.

    Cons

    The company is constantly looking for ways to improve itself and places a large emphasis on analysis, which can sometimes make initiatives move slowly. They tend to be in a constant state of re-organizing.

    Advice to Management

    Work more agile: reduce/remove unnecessary layers of project governance; allow small, highly dedicated teams to learn and iterate.

    Pros

    Great benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Every day is scheduled for you with no say and an increased use of call center metrics. Due to the DOL ruling accounts are leaving at a rapid pace leaving less and less for service center employees to do.

    Good pay and fine equipment and office. People are very congenial. Company is profitable.

    Departments don't always communicate or provide resources that programming people need.

    Tie things together by rewarding departments that widely disseminate their products even within IT. Could be done via wiki or Share point.

    I have been working at Capital Group part-time

    Pros

    Great people and culture still. Everyone is always willing to help each other. Good benefits.

    Cons

    That culture that is so appealing is changing rapidly and the push towards pure numbers is turning it into a basic, numbers-obsessed call center.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that motivating people to be more productive is not achieved by scaring people but rather by realistic expectations and encouragement.
