    I have been working at CapitalSource full-time

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere, strong management team that knows how to let people do their thing, good comp and benefits though benefits declined a bit after PWB merger. Still acts and feels like a small company even though it is a $15B bank now.

    Cons

    Burdens of being a federally regulated financial institution are annoying and can get in the way of doing good work, but it is not much of a detractor. Could use some formal training resources.

    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 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.

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