    I worked at Capital One part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - I met some great co workers as my fellow tellers
    - When the crisis of Hurricane Sandy came to New York, employees had received extra pay for traveling
    - new experiences with customers.. getting to know them and learning alot about them

    Cons

    - Some managers didn't know how to be managers, very immature.. took management to a whole arrogant level
    - I felt like i was in high school with all the "grown adults" who took most of their time to gossip about everyone
    - no opportunities
    - make you do abundance of work for a little amount of pay
    - never had a life always was at work

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to learn how to show a better example for their employees. They also need to understand not to take things personal and act like a manager or lead teller instead of being immature and ignorant. Also for lead tellers they need not to be micro managers. Human Resources should also listen to employees if they are getting the same complaints over and over about the same manager.

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

    Pros

    Nice facilities, good people overall, benefits from day 1, and the vacation time is better than most.

    Cons

    Salary is very low considering the amount of work required. Work/life balance is often talked out, but nearly impossible to put into practice. Bonuses and promotions are awarded based on being a favorite of leadership rather than education, experience, or performance. The most vocal get rewarded regardless of actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should pay more attention to performance and make more of an effort to be fair and unbiased.
