    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The buildings in Tysons look beautiful on the inside. Definitely does not have a corporate vibe. Feels like an IT company in silicon valley. There's all sorts of unique and creative decorations, layouts, etc. They provide some free snacks and drinks.

    Cons

    It all depends on your group since it's such a large company. From my experience, they have way too many software engineers, way too many cogs in a giant machine, and everything is too decentralized. Amazed that anything actually works, quite frankly. There was no vision, just myopic two week sprints, that were incredibly fast-paced. Hated the open layout concept. There are also too many H1B people working there, and...

    Advice to Management

    Stop the relentless fast-paced sprints and have a vision. Stop pretending to care about workers with some fake caring attitude, when in reality there is no dissent.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -location, health benefits, and great pay for engineering -hires decent mid & senior engineers

    Cons

    -too many cooks in the kitchen while being pulled in every direction leading to frustration -takes too long to get things done -too many meetings causing distraction -losing top talent due to chaotic fire drill like tasks due to teams like auditing chasing us down for information that’s clearly all right there

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the politics, true techies work at tech companies for a reason. Listen to engineers before you start losing the good ones.

    Pros

    For software engineers they treat you well here. You get snacks and plenty of happy hours happen. There isn't generally a large turn-over rate as people like it here.

    Cons

    Tough competition to get promoted depending on what level you start at.
