    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.
