Product Management

Is capital one a good place to consider being a product manager? I’m desperately trying to exit a toxic work environment and I’m evaluating a capital one offer versus one from a rental app startup . Salary is super close for both but want to make sure I don’t run to the wrong company in an attempt to escape my current one Capital One
