I worked at Capital One full-time

Pros

Cap One is located in Richmond, which is affordable and extremely family friendly. One of the best jobs in the city. Work-life balance (flex hours, vacation) is valued very much, which I loved. Decent salary, with room for promotional bonuses/yearly bonus and salary raises. Terrific employee training.

Cons

Cap One is famous for its junk mail - thus, many hours are spent creating work that many people may just throw in the trash = not inspiring. Processes are often drawn out (it may take 3-6 months to create such a letter). Day to day work can make you feel like cog in machine.

Advice to Management

Keep up - don't let the recession cut out what you did so great five years ago.

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

    Pros

    There are some very talented people to work with, and great skills to learn

    Good company values, although the competency model needs reviewing.

    Cons

    Good ol' boy network. Lack of diversity at Capital One is very apparent. And as rightfully pointed out by another reviewer, diversity goes beyond ethnicity.

    Most people working here are smart, but not "elite".

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on their qualifications, not on whether they share the same football team, geographic and/or ethnic background as you.
