I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Capital One has an incredible dedication to your personal and career development. Senior leadership spends significant time coaching, mentoring, etc. They are very supportive of rotations to various parts of the company to continue to learn new areas and skills even at the expense of efficiency at times.

Cons

The culture and type of work has shifted over time as the bank has grown. The company used to always be about growth/innovation and had retained part of its start up culture roots for a long time. More recently the focus has shifted to mostly regulatory/compliance and well managed work and the culture has gotten a bit stuffier. That being said its still an amazing place to work and to launch a career.

Advice to Management

Try to hold on to the aspects that made the company fun in the past to maintain associate morale and attract the right type of enthusiastic and passionate employees. Just because we're in the highly regulated banking industry doesn't mean we need to lose all the good talent to google, Facebook, etc.

    I worked at Capital One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment - smart culture that values quantitative approach. Lots of chances to learn, expand your skills and take classes.

    Cons

    The culture. NOT team-oriented at all. All about making yourself look good at the expense of others. Stab each other in the back. Need help - nope, you're on your own. And they really need to re-evaluate the meaning of the phrase "work-life" balance. If I had stayed there any longer, I would have gotten divorced.

    I wound up taking a job working significantly fewer hours for more money and was much happier working for a company that valued servicing the client over advancing ones career.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your culture. Stress teamwork.
