I worked at Capital One full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People are great, salary & benefits good. Telecommute/flex time a big plus. Great campus, lots of freedom.

Cons

Performance Management is a disgrace. Promotions based on popularity and how good your manager is at presenting you in discussions. Decisions already made in advance of "360 feedback".

Very political. Pretty young college girls do well and move up, but veterans suffer. Lots of cliques.I did upper-level work for 3 years and never got the offical promotion (or pay).

Much talk about "open culture" and diversity of thought -- but be vocally opposed to something and you're banished from the kingdom.

Advice to Management

Don't play with your people. Get rid of the politics. You have so many talented, smart people there -- stop screwing with them. Oh, and watchdog your ethics too.

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

    Pros

    Great, intelligent, motivated employees. Compelling and impactful work. Extremely strong developmentally based culture. Little internal politics (but there is some).

    Cons

    At times self select to work long hours -- management chain will stay on sidelines while it occurs. At times can feel cyclic within staff functions. Upper management's concept of easy versus difficult in relation to other tasks is at time non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Strongly push the legacy culture into new acquisitions sooner then later. Empower HR to better integrate acquisitions and push retention decision points closer to the legal day one time period, versus dragging it on.
