    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    great salary, awesome benefits, great company culture

    Cons

    They have been branding themselves a tech company but their internal systems are horrible Also tends to be a good old boys club when it comes to promotions. Employee evaluation process is horrific. Job Security, towards the end it felt like you always had to keep your running sneakers around your neck......

    Advice to Management

    Rate your employee's based on their individual performance not how they rank to others simIlar to them . Stop calling yourself a tech company till you have the tech to support that claim

      I worked at Capital One full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Great engineering team. Engineering leadership is solid, has a good attitude, and SDE talent that punches above their weight - Capital One has good senior executive leadership and as a whole they genuinely try to be a good actor in society - Work life balance is great because most people lost hope on delivering meaningful work. Many people leave as early as 3pm or work from home with little or no notice

      Cons

      - The Seattle team is not like the rest of the company. A lot of what you read on glassdoor does not apply to this team even some benefits - Seattle job responsibilities for roles are different which makes working with the enterprise inefficient - Seattle team is organized in a by silos that prevent work from getting done effectively - Project/program management team does not follow industry best practices - Large...

      Advice to Management

      Your onsite management is lying to you about how and what they are working on. The team is incredibly mismanaged, which is why they keep missing deadlines. During one of my first meetings with McLean my manager muted the phone and people proceeded to make personal comments about a leader on the other side of the phone and though this didn't happen frequently the animosity . Having a enterprise leader that frequently...

      I have been working at Capital One for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Boring problems, wants to be like Amazon

      Cons

      Can be a great place to be, but you must come in at the right position. If you start out with low pay then it's impossible to recover without leaving the company.

      Pros

      Compensation is at times awesome.

      Cons

      Calibration process is cut-throat Fakeness is encouraged Management does not care about workers There is NO work/life balance.

      Advice to Management

      You force company culture on associates while doing absolutely nothing to resolve deep-seated problems. A cookie and balloon WILL NOT make your good workers want to stay. Everyone is SCARED to speak on how they really feel about anything as they will be booted for not being a mindless, always smiling stepford.
