      Teamwork and collaboration aren't achieved by leveraging a performance mgmt system that pits employee against employee for cash prizes

      some groups have grown too quickly and the culture has changed. A lot of cliques and favoritism. The forced distribution mandate creates a culture of undercutting your peers.

      Do away with forced distribution and get back to focusing on making Capital One a great place to work.
