Featured Review

Current Employee - Master Analyst

I have been working at American Express full-time

Pros

great place to work ever

Cons

Long working hours can strech

Former Employee - Senior Coordinator

I worked at Capital One full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good work environment, high standards, friendly atmosphere, good food and benefits like mobile

Cons

Lots of partiality, whoever is manager’s friend gets a promotion, they hire and give salary when they have a project and throw us out if there is no new project without even sending to bench

Advice to Management

Please get good projects to India
