    Pros

    Capital One has really good benefits and excellent work life balance. The holidays are a plus because you receive time off for just about all federal holidays, President's Day, Columbus Day, etc., including the national holidays. The yearly bonus is great plus.

    Cons

    The performance evaluation process is not entirely fair. It's highly subjective and promotions are few and far between. Compensation is not below average in the industry (low base pay), however a bonus is given yearly but not guaranteed and it's solely based on your performance evaluation. Re-orgs are constant and at times you could have 2-3 managers in one year, which I think hinders career growth.

    Advice to Management

    I think management should do a better job of defining goals and objectives. Also, management should clearly explain what is expected in order to advance within the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very smart people, Good locations to live (Richmond/McLean), Strong balance sheet (very little mortgage exposure from the crisis)

    Cons

    Employees work long hours for below average compensation especially for specialized finance/technical roles (one or the other probably needs to go). Senior/Mid-level management have very little traditional banking experience (and a tendency to try to reinvent the wheel)

    Advice to Management

    Fix the compensation issue if you want to be able to retain or attract high caliber, experienced capital markets/banking talent. Recognize that sometimes you need experienced hires rather than trying to plug in 'smart' rising stars into businesses they have no experience with
