Current Employee - Program Manager in McLean, VA
Current Employee - Program Manager in McLean, VA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Extremely intelligent, driven people
Ability to move around from job to job - which can be unrelated to previous experience (moves are based on skill level, but there's a downside because people can take highly specialized positions without prior experience)
In some areas of the company - great flexibility with work schedule, hours, location - 'future of work' modality

Cons

Salaries and benefits decreased over time to accommodate becoming a bank vs. credit card company,
Performance management process is cumbersome
Success depends on manager who will fight for you
Inconsistencies in 'flexible work' environment - vary from department to department and individual to individual
Some legacy employees who joined Capital One when very young are still young and in very (too) senior positions

Advice to Management

Gain better consistency of flexible work environment throughout the organization
Stop compromising the level of health benefits provided to employees

Other Employee Reviews for Capital One

  1. "No accountability within management...not serious about the mortgage business..."

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    PTO (paid time off) and Holidays

    Cons

    They lose money on every mortgage...not because of pricing but because of a large unaccountable operations staff and management that has no experience! Average time to close a clean refi is 90 days plus! Twice the amount of processors as successful mortgage companies. SR management has NO mortgage experience...this is not a credit card or car loan folks!

    Advice to Management

    Tell your MC's that you are more interested in buying banks than mortgage origination! Don't break things that are not broke...or try to reinvent the business...this is not rocket science...


  2. "Generally OK"

    Pros

    Capital One has a large pool of talent. It has average set of benefits. Dynamic Culture.

    Cons

    limited opportunities for advancement. Although, they say it is merit based, it is still very political.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the your higher level execs, know very well how to play politics within the company -- and are quite petty.
