    I worked at Capital Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Troops on the ground want to do the right thing
    Good compensation
    Nice facilities and physical environment
    Pleasant colleagues

    Cons

    In some pockets, vendors have stronger influence than associates
    Lacks strategic vision: seems to be following other players in the industry rather than innovating
    Several layers of management and very outdated technology makes it almost impossible at times to get work done
    Due to many years of micromanagement, very difficult to transfer and share tribal knowledge between groups

    Advice to Management

    Talk to line managers and associates to understand what is really going on. There is a risk that talented individual contributors will leave as the economy improves leaving behind mostly "yes" people


  2. "Great Learning experience"

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Capital Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In the investment management business, they are second to none, very Smart people, hardworking and enjoy having great management company access. Long term horizon investing and seems they are committed to it

    Cons

    Their technology is quite outdated - phones, computer, administration. Performance measurement seems a bit arbitrary though most are quite happy with it. Very independent culture which sometimes run contrary to team orientation, I suppose it depends on your personality type
