    Pros

    Capital One truly has some of the best talent around, particularly when it comes to risk and credit policy. The pay is "competitive", and by competitive, I mean average or just above. Capital One, like many other employers, aims to curb cash compensation with other perks, like vacation and flexible work arrangements. It's also historically been very heavy on H1B work visas. If those things are important to you, it can be a great place.

    Cons

    My last department had a 1-2% annual promotion rate, shortly before reorganizing and laying off half the the group, despite rigorous performance managment, high ratings, and raises and bonuses to boot. However, promotion rates were inconsistent across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Capital One is and has undergone great change, with acquiring of banks, crumbling of credit environment, and legislative hurdles. Capital One departments jockey for position and fight over the same work, across multiple departments I've worked in. With a clear declaration of who does what will end waste and provide clarity. While I didn't work in the bank, the integration of our branches is simply a joke. Rich should have been clear that there is no such thing as a merger, the bank purchases were acquisitions, and the roles and decision authority should have been clear. The intended "partnership" in the name of not stepping on toes in the banks just created confusion, in-fighting, and waste.

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of smart people to work with.

    Cons

    History of acquiring companies and then shutting them down after two years, before they even really understand the business model.

    Advice to Management

    Engage in some hefty due diligence before buying a company - make sure you understand the business model instead of just looking at the income statements.
