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

    Pros

    The benefits and office perks are amazing, there are a lot of talented and bright individuals that work here.

    Cons

    I have not witnessed outside my group the same issues but the hours are extremely demanding, management within the group does not care about career development of the employees (the expectation is you find a new job after about 2 years), and there is favoritism based off race and gender (which can be frustrating to witness).

    Pros

    Transition to WFH because of COVID was a breeze since company was well prepared for employees to work remotely, very good benefits, very capable colleagues
