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

    Pros

    The infrastructure is amazing,,,equals Google standards.
    Come here with a long term thought. If you are looking to work and leave within one or two years.
    A free and friendly work culture that will help you develop your professional aspirations as well.
    BB: Benefits and breakfast are the best :P
    You can express you career aspirations and they will do their best to get you there.
    Mutual respect. I have been a contractor and a full timer here. They really stand for human values and will equally respect all.

    Cons

    Politics: Not all places, but yes a very small group exists here and there. Very negligible compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great. Please continue doing so.

    The working culture at Capital One Bank is truly amazing! They truly take good care of their associates.

    The banking environment is changing very drastically. But it's not really a con. Just less people is needed due to the amazing technology. We just hire the right people.

    Pros

    Great company, with excellent people. Make sure you embrace change - this company moves fast, and if they don't feel you're on board, you might be out of a job! Great while it lasted, though.

    Cons

    Silos. Card runs the company, so if you're on the bank side, that gets old fast.
