Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Live their values, cares and invests in their people ensuring all staff get quality coaching and developing vs. checking a box, gathers insights to drive it's business strategy. Voted one of the top... 100 companies to work for in the US by it's own people. Now that is an endorsement...

Cons

No offices in Australia unfortunately.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. You have set a standard that most companies dream of... Well done.
