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.
