    I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing place to work. People are great, pay is great, work/life balance is great. Would highly recommend their Analyst Development Program, but enter as a Business analyst, not a data analyst. Analysts hired here are intelligent, where most of them have engineering backgrounds. In love with the company and benefits, not in love with my role. Unfortunately, I will push to move from being a Business analyst to a data analyst and if this push doesn't happen, then i'll be leaving the company.

    Cons

    More power within the Business Analyst Community than the Data Analyst community. Business Analysts have more exposure to higher ups (i.e. VPs) and are higher in the unofficial hierarchy amongst job families, also it seems that currently as capital one is laying off people, they are pushing to retain business analysts much more than data analysts.

    Advice to Management

    Data analysts should be given more tasks covering the business end. Seems like a lot of DA's I know are unhappy with the limited role of a DA.
