    I worked at Capital One as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work location, allows to work from home in any location. Nice office building when actually in the office.

    Cons

    Work during day, but must work late nights all the time. Training of the system was not transfered to new employees very easy.

    Advice to Management

    There was no advancement as I was a contractor. The transition from HSBC to Capitol was not happening anytime.

    Pros

    People were very friendly and dedicated. Rate was good. Worked there three years. Flexible about telecommuting.

    wake up to greater use of Linux and newer technologies.

    Pros

    Capital One is a great company with great benefits, extremely diverse and offers flexible work schedules. I was totally impressed with the management and how much they value their employees and their strengths.

    Cons

    I really can not think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Once again nothing negative, I guess I would say to keep encouraging employees by offering training and leadership and great rewards.

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

    Pros

    1. amazing corporate structures and work/life balance.
    2. PLENTY to learn.
    3. Fantastic templates for anyone to pick up and learn
    4. Great internal roles to diversify if desired
    5. Helpful coworkers

    Cons

    1. Cap One purchased HSBC's credit card portfolio and kept the whole group in the dark when mapping roles.
    2. Upper management is focused on just completing Integration projects and get turned on with "Agile" where it does not always work.
    3. Job is stable but FORGET getting promotions every year. a 3% increase in base pay(less than inflation) is not exciting

    Advice to Management

    1. provide hard core certifications that can be completed within a week, PMP, CBAP, ITIL, SAP BI, TOGAF
    2. Directors need to focus on giving subordinates motivation vs just getting the job done.
