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

    Pros

    Great manager, awesome snacks and beverages, so many interns events, lots of compensation, plenty of team bonding

    Cons

    Honestly nothing to complain about. Lived up to the hype. I really have nothing to say here. I heard the promotion process can be tricky.

    Advice to Management

    Make the promotion process more clear perhaps, overall I think things are being done really well in the direction of heading towards tech.

    I worked at Capital One as an intern

    Pros

    First and foremost, Capital One doesn't treat their interns any different than a regular full-time employee. You are tasked with real work that impacts the company.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about.

    I worked at Capital One as an intern

    Pros

    Many, many opportunities to network with other interns and with employees within your division. My team had me doing meaningful work on a production application right away. People are very friendly and I felt I could be candid.

    Cons

    I talked with some interns that did not feel they were challenged or given meaningful work, this pro may sometimes be team specific
