    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Compensation is at times awesome.

    Cons

    Calibration process is cut-throat Fakeness is encouraged Management does not care about workers There is NO work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You force company culture on associates while doing absolutely nothing to resolve deep-seated problems. A cookie and balloon WILL NOT make your good workers want to stay. Everyone is SCARED to speak on how they really feel about anything as they will be booted for not being a mindless, always smiling stepford.

    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of travel opportunity. Great for some (not for everyone)— especially for people avoiding their families or trying to have an affair. If you don't like your current team, you can often move to another one or relocate to another location. Great opportunity to learn new skills. Some of the leadership is inspiring. Nice workspaces for some.

    Cons

    Gender-biased, misguided, disorganized, competitive structure, reorgs frequent This place is trying to be a start-up with huge enterprise problems—it's awkward. Makes for a lot of wasted effort for people trying to get things done in an innovative way with business-side making the last judgment. Shiny object syndrome. Emphasis on PR moments over fixing real problems. Performance reviews lend to a gender- or personality-bias...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Don't just spend money on diversity & inclusion training — really implement some change in the culture. Get organized. Lessen reorgs. Stop acquiring other companies before you can handle what you have. You are not a tech company or a start up, just face it. Just be a better company, spend the money on hiring better engineers instead of on business people from failed start-ups who don't know how to...
