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

    Pros

    Good benefits - salary, 401K, medical Flexible work schedules - allow work from home, flex hours to accommodate your life Growing company - increased focus on technology, striving to be a market leader in finance and tech with focus on moving everything to the cloud

    Cons

    Very little role clarity, constant re-orgs and forced ranking system contribute to a working environment that is constantly in flux and puts people on edge. Was hired for one role and, shortly after one month of my arrival, the role morphed into something that I was way overqualified for. Instead of the "team" attitude, because people are forced ranked against each other, it was less "I'll help you do this" and more...

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at results rather than who is better at playing politics. Capital One is still a very young company compared to its competitors and if it doesn't get its internal house in order (processes, better middle management, less re-orgs), all the growth will catch up to it.

    I worked at Capital One full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    great salary, awesome benefits, great company culture

    Cons

    They have been branding themselves a tech company but their internal systems are horrible Also tends to be a good old boys club when it comes to promotions. Employee evaluation process is horrific. Job Security, towards the end it felt like you always had to keep your running sneakers around your neck......

    Advice to Management

    Rate your employee's based on their individual performance not how they rank to others simIlar to them . Stop calling yourself a tech company till you have the tech to support that claim

    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...

    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...

    I have been working at Capital One for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Boring problems, wants to be like Amazon

    Cons

    Can be a great place to be, but you must come in at the right position. If you start out with low pay then it's impossible to recover without leaving the company.

    Pros

    pay, benefits, cafeterias abound, health center on campus

    Cons

    not enough accountability, TOO many hours (80 last week), last minute projects handed off after quitting time and wanted by the next morning

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff fairly and equally, maintain transparency with entire team, hold everyone accountable for their deliverables to be done in a timely manner
