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

Pros

I only worked at capital one for about year, but felt that I gained valuable experience in analytics that I've been able to apply in future roles.

The culture is also great for analytically-minded folk. Ideas are argued based on their merits, and you can have a big impact as a junior analyst if you're good enough.

Cons

Capital One makes basically all of their money off tricking poor people into using products they can't afford. They're better than they were (after some big settlements with the federal government) but in most areas of the company you'll need to be comfortable with the fact that you're the type of banker people protest.

Advice to Management

Expand operations in the bay area and Seattle.

    I have been working at Capital One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They offer a relaxed work environment, at least superficially, where jeans are ok, there's a ping pong table, and a gym downstairs. Depending on your manager, flexible hours or working from home might be available. Health insurance is expensive, but has good coverage.

    Cons

    Since being purchased by Capital One, benefits and morale at our local office have sunk to all new lows. Few of our technology systems are integrated, and after two years it looks like we are nowhere closer to being so. Communication from management is more about generating a feeling of inclusion, than actually passing along useful information. And while a few original processes from our company remain in place, anything new introduced by the corporate office bring additional layers of inefficiency which prevent workers from completing normal job assignments.
