    Pros

    There's a genuine sense of caring for one another. It's very rare in FS that you get a company that has a desire to go above and beyond for it's customers, but Capital One definitely do that. They look after their associates very well, great benefits, flexible working, supportive management, good salaries.

    Cons

    More opportunity for people to progress, sometimes this is capped, not intentionally, but purely down to team structures.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker decision making

    I worked at Capital One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Clear mission based business. Customer focussed. Senior leaders give regular updates on how the business is doing.
    Nice office with restaurant, free tea, coffee and hot chocolate, pool table, gym, music room, etc.

    Cons

    Employee performance reviews are done by ranking all employees of the same pay grade. As a result, colleagues are very unhelpful towards each other as they consider them as competition.

    High staff turnover.

    Whilst from the outside it looks like a very flat organisation, with VP’s and Directors sitting in an open plan office with everyone else, people are very status oriented and regularly say “X is a Principle Associate” or “Y is only a Coordinator. He shouldn’t be talking to someone of our level like that”.

    Pros

    Nice working environment and some good technical guys there. some interesting projects.

    Cons

    there is most certainly a core clique of people who create a campaign of propaganda and most certainly do not like honest opinions. If you speak your mind regards project deliverables, strategy or staff members who are clearly playing a game then prepare to have your card marked and be rounded on by the stasi "This is the cap One way" police. Long time serving staff at Cap One have been slowly brainwashed by the Capital one ethics. The one upmanship approach is encouraged, staff are passive aggressively managed out of the business if the face or opinion does not fit. Many very talented people joining from external organisations rarely stick around as they see and experience the wrath of this unhealthy culture. On the outside it looks like fun and enjoyable but underneath there is a very protective and somewhat nieve group of people who only care about how good you can make them look. Very divisive and intrinsic.

    Advice to Management

    your culture will damage your long term growth and effectiveness in the financial market.

    I worked at Capital One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, Indoor gym and restaurant. I met some good colleagues but to be honest the gym and the food there was the two things I was looking forward to

    Cons

    Lack of training and be prepared to be paid late and not always the correct amount. The amount of work given made me automatically feel like I have to be paid more because of the complexity of the work. However for complexity, peanuts are given but hopefully things will improve for the next generation of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not bring in new staff and not provide them with proper training and leave them in limbo only to then say "we think that this job is not for you". I enjoyed knowing that I was going to be employed here but after I realised I was not getting the proper training and was lacking behind everybody else I had to come to the same conclusion as management, that it was not for me. I can only speak about my experience but also think that for the work people do, they should get paid more and fairly.

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

    Pros

    Lovely open plan office (Nottingham), fun working environment, if occasionally a bit zany, best IT helpdesk I have experienced at work, open to using new and emerging systems

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity and ownership in terms of moving to new roles, lots of similar personalities, can be a bit cliquey

    Advice to Management

    Employ more diverse personalities
