I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

1. amazing corporate structures and work/life balance.
2. PLENTY to learn.
3. Fantastic templates for anyone to pick up and learn
4. Great internal roles to diversify if desired
5. Helpful coworkers

Cons

1. Cap One purchased HSBC's credit card portfolio and kept the whole group in the dark when mapping roles.
2. Upper management is focused on just completing Integration projects and get turned on with "Agile" where it does not always work.
3. Job is stable but FORGET getting promotions every year. a 3% increase in base pay(less than inflation) is not exciting

Advice to Management

1. provide hard core certifications that can be completed within a week, PMP, CBAP, ITIL, SAP BI, TOGAF
2. Directors need to focus on giving subordinates motivation vs just getting the job done.

    Pros

    Capital One is a good bank to start your career at to gain some banking experience.

    Cons

    Bad management, the computer system sucks, the employees were extremely overworked and underpaid.You have to watch your back because everyone is out for themselves and will stab you in the back faster than a murderer.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking favorites and pay more attention to the people that are putting in the real work.

    Pros

    There is a very diverse culture, and you can find some truly amazing talented people. The benefits are great, and there are always events going on monthly.It is a great place for students and recent graduated getting their first start (like myself) When work is over it's over; there is no need to bring the job home.

    Cons

    WIth so many employees there is a lot of competition for promotions and opportunities. Although there are some amazing people, honestly it is hard to tell who to trust.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers could be a little more personable, and not act as if they are extremely superior to everyone. There also needs to be a lot more consistency in the office regarding polices and procedures; seems as if each manager has their own particular guidelines which can be confusing throughout the dept.
