    I worked at Capital One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of young people, which makes an open-minded and active atmosphere;
    Big company, which makes it easy to switch between departments and learn different skills;
    Gym is good;
    Flexible hours, some teams allow you to work from home frequently as long as you get your job done;

    Cons

    Too many young people can mean lots of peer pressure, because these kids are too eager to show how smart and hard-working they are;
    Too many changes, and lots of them are unecessary. Every new VP will bring a "new" idea to the team, and after a couple of organizational changes you find yourself return to the starting point.
    Too many meetings in the department I used to work for. You can have a whole day's meetings, and still have a whole day's work waiting for you and due tomorrow. What do you do then? You work over the night and over the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Use the money that pay 1 VP to hire 10 associates. Every team in this company seems too short of hands doing the actual job and too bountiful of mouths making rushy decisions.

    I worked at Capital One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, fair pay, nice facilities. plenty of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Work load is overwhelming. Don't expect to have a normal 40 hr/wk life. For analyst type of work, whether associate or manager, people work overtime all the time. Think twice if you want a healthy life.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce your office politics.
