    I worked at Capital One (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced and fun environment. The location where I worked had several buildings and great places to eat. I enjoyed the agile work environment. Loved having a laptop and having a choice of where I could work. I'd often have back to back meetings in different buildings. I will always remember my experience at Capital One. I enjoyed it a lot.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment. You have to catch on quickly! Processes were constantly changing. Just as things started to make sense and you became very good at a process, the next day you come in and everything had changed. Sometimes that included a change in management, restructuring of departments, or layoffs.

    Benefits beyond standard medical and dental. COF provides Back up child care, onsite bank, gym and health center is so convenient!

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Technology organization remade itself over the past few years and is now competing with elite tech companies for talent.

    Competitive pay.

    Smart people.

    Diverse technology and lots of opportunities for lateral moves.

    Great place for people with 0-10 years experience.

    Innovation is encouraged by most managers.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are very constrained for the senior ranks. (Probably because few senior people leave the company voluntarily)

    Performance appraisal process creates bitterness and unhealthy competition between peers. The company stresses the value of 'team' but the performance process is directly opposed to it.

    People who are good at appearing to contribute rather than actually contributing are richly rewarded. If you want to excel here, make sure you pat yourself on the back in front of the directors.

    Advice to Management

    Overall a good place to work.

    The shift toward the company being a tech company that happens to be a bank is paying dividends. Keep it up.

    Work with other industry leaders to find a new way to measure individual performance.
    Look a level deeper at peoples work and its value. People liked by management and despised by everyone else should not be treated like kings and queens.
