I have been working at Capital One full-time

Pros

Talented, dedicated, competitive people who are selected for the power of their ideas. The people that excel there are truly deserving and every day I realize how exceptional the people that work here are.

Cons

the super-competitive people that Capital One hire are graded on how well they cooperate with others, then put into a super-competitive 360 review/forced ranking process that amplifies small errors.

Advice to Management

Embrace diversity of approaches and be concerned more with outcomes than process.

    I worked at Capital One full-time

    Pros

    Energetic and fun team environment, good benefits, great training. Upper management is excellent in my experience-very dedicated. It's a good opportunity for career auto industry people. If you aren't 100% committed to auto finance or the auto industry in general, not only will this be a temporary gig for you but it will also have a limiting effect on future career opportunities (and good luck trying to get a Capital One recruiter to help you with an internal transfer: they are simply not interested in helping current employees).

    Cons

    Work on the weekends, call center environment, open cubicle layout and it's business-casual despite the fact that you work over the phone all day. Your success in the role is highly dependent on a lot of other people, i.e. teammates, customers, managers, underwriters, employers, etc., so a lot of things (including your success in this position) can be and are out of your control. Career opportunities rapidly diminish past the senior relationship manager role, so be prepared to relocate to Plano, TX for COAF advancement. "Senior" Relationship Managers are mostly young with little to no prior management experience.

    Advice to Management

    People don't quit companies, they quit managers: do you have the right managers in place?

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedules and their 401k for part-timers is a plus

    Cons

    Takes ridiculously long to move up the ladder or get recognized for success

    Advice to Management

    None
