    Pros

    Culture and Work Life balance are the best. Collaborative environment Company Mission Industry leader Most senior leaders (VP+) are highly accessible and make time for junior level employees

    Cons

    Analyst and Product Job Families are the highest respected; therefore, some roles within the company are not update to industry standards for compensation and career trajectories/development.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to execute on the mission and value the employees you have that are in leadership positions.

    Some good people working there. Smart and supportive.

    Management is focused only on timelines and milestones regardless of the quality of the work

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you hire. You hired them for a reason.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast growing in SF. Great office spaces, resources, and culture (in the SF offices). Benefits are amazing. It's not a typical stuffy bank environment and the company is focused on disrupting the bank industry.

    Cons

    HQ based in DC so it can be hard to push things forward quickly if working with colleagues from corporate HQ. The SF culture is vastly different from the corporate culture in DC. DC associates don't seem to understand the growth in SF and what digital teams are trying to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    More one on one time with direct reports focusing on problems or issues with getting your work done. More flexibility in allowing direct reports to work from home on occasion (open office environments can be a bit overwhelming at times when you just want to focus on getting work done).

    I worked at Capital One for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart people, very professional, high respect for clarity of thinking and delivery. Technology, equipment and facilities are top notch. Very structured on boarding process.

    Cons

    Executives and project owners are very difficult to track down. Nearly impossible to conduct requirements/scope discussions. Contractors are seen as a necessary evil and treated as such.

    Advice to Management

    At least invest your valuable time into the requirements planning phase of the project.

    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Having worked at the company for over 10 years, it really is a great place to work with great people. The benefits are good and are very family centered.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up within the company unless you are located in Richmond. Pay is lower as an employee who's been there for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Start coming up with better than high-level plans without any realistic idea of the shift it takes to get there. Start being honest and transparent of the reasoning behind the decision making. Reward those who get things done, not those who use others to make themselves look good.

    Pros

    The people that work there are great. The overall strategy is great.

    Cons

    Process hurdles and red tape add unnecessary delays and complexity. The culture is chaotic and beyond "fast-paced".

    Advice to Management

    Communicate vision and purpose. Remove the red tape and redundant process steps.
