Featured Review

Current Employee - Communications Director

I have been working at American Express full-time

Pros

More than I have time to list

Cons

Working for a large international business isn't for everyone.

Current Employee - Head of Brand Strategy

I have been working at Capital One full-time

Pros

Development Culture - you’re encouraged to really own your own development and the opportunities you see and go after. Commitment to work/life balance. Investor in People - they hire brilliant... people and recognise individual talent. It’s an amazing place to work - even on zoom.

Cons

Can’t think of any cons! They expect a lot but give back in what their employees give.
