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

    Pros

    - Great engineering team. Engineering leadership is solid, has a good attitude, and SDE talent that punches above their weight - Capital One has good senior executive leadership and as a whole they genuinely try to be a good actor in society - Work life balance is great because most people lost hope on delivering meaningful work. Many people leave as early as 3pm or work from home with little or no notice

    Cons

    - The Seattle team is not like the rest of the company. A lot of what you read on glassdoor does not apply to this team even some benefits - Seattle job responsibilities for roles are different which makes working with the enterprise inefficient - Seattle team is organized in a by silos that prevent work from getting done effectively - Project/program management team does not follow industry best practices -... Large and toxic design team that impedes engineering work and delivery - Management caught up with trivial office politics that includes personal rumors - A large amount of middle managers (Directors) that spend a lot of time squabbling between each other to fulfill their personal interests over that of the associate, company, and customer -Project / program managers are uncommon in rest of the company. This causes low growth opportunities and a abstract concept of calibration for the job family

    Advice to Management

    Your onsite management is lying to you about how and what they are working on. The team is incredibly mismanaged, which is why they keep missing deadlines. During one of my first meetings with McLean my manager muted the phone and people proceeded to make personal comments about a leader on the other side of the phone and though this didn't happen frequently the animosity . Having a enterprise leader that... frequently visits and manages the Seattle team may prevent Seattle from treating the enterprise team as enemies instead of partners. Lean out the middle management, listen to associate surveys, put more scrutiny on Seattle. The Seattle team shares no consistency with the rest of the company, which is a huge problem.
