I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Capital One has a great work culture. Employees have a lot of freedom in their work. There is very less bureaucracy and in most cases, if you can prove your hypothesis using the right data, then you win.

Cons

Need to upgrade the compensation structure;
Need to be consistent in growth opportunities in various departments - growth is very easy in a few areas whereas extremely hard to come by in a few other (mainly due to bad planning by senior management)

Advice to Management

Think about the career opportunities given to employees at lower levels.. else, high risk of localized attrition..

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Collaborative culture - the focus is on solving the business problem and achieving a great result as a team, rather that individually
    Very smart people, analytically-driven, intellectually rigorous
    Young, energetic workforce
    Competitive pay
    Lots of opportunity for upward and lateral movement
    Good work-life flexibility, openness to working from home sometimes

    Cons

    The degree of analysis and collaboration often slows decision-making
    Strategies change rapidly, sometimes without sufficient time to see one course of action to conclusion
    Long hours - everyone works very hard and very long - tends to be later nights rather than early mornings

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand thinking on remote/flexible work arrangements
