    I worked at CapitalSource full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    can be good if you are in the right group.

    Cons

    lot of turnover because they do not promote from within. Bureaucratic. Most of the talent has left the commercial lending / origination teams. No training. No real organization structure.. Bad upper and middle management since merger. lower then average pay unless you are VP or higher.

    Advice to Management

    treat employees better to avoid the high turnover rates. new hires are lacking because pay is too low.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at CapitalSource full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed, but growing and exciting deal environment with little direct non CBT training, and a huge awesome legacy from former CEO Delaney that is being destroyed by new Senior Mgmt.

    Cons

    Recently removed great benefits such as catered lunch and other Employee respectful and rewarding extras.

    Advice to Management

    go back to John D's approach of 'don't go cheap' in regards to Employees and Processes.

    I worked at CapitalSource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, interesting coworkers, and nice office space. Hours are very reasonable. Not a difficult job.

    Cons

    Lack of communication about strategic vision from upper management. Feel like a cog in the wheel too often and lacks development programs.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees so they want to stay. Way too often you see your colleagues leaving for better opportunities when they would have stayed for more responsibility or money.

    I have been working at CapitalSource as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and wiling to help out. It is a very casual environment without much stress. There is also free catered lunch every day and a nice array of snacks available at all times, along with a gym and locker room.

    Cons

    Not very fast-paced, or much excitement, if you're seeking a challenging job.
