    some groups have grown too quickly and the culture has changed. A lot of cliques and favoritism. The forced distribution mandate creates a culture of undercutting your peers.

    Do away with forced distribution and get back to focusing on making Capital One a great place to work.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great colleagues, competitive salary/bonus/benefits, downtown location

    Cons

    Frequent and disruptive org changes and leadership changes, some roles (analysts) receive systemic preferential treatment while everyone else is second class, deeply flawed performance management process, only product is a credit card - no innovation or growth

    Advice to Management

    You already know the major problems with performance management and your system of ‘meritocracy’. If your desire to attract and retain the brightest Canadian talent was working you wouldn’t need to continually import leaders from the US head office. Start valuing all the smart people you’ve been fortunate enough to cross path with and stop driving them out of the organization.

    Pros

    Good salaries and benefits, lots of work and opportunities, smart people, plenty of budget.

    Cons

    Some pains as transform from traditional bank/credit card company to "Tech Company." Mostly finished the aggressive clean up of legacy employees, but some of it is ongoing. The performance management is the thing that seems to rub the most people the wrong way.

    Advice to Management

    Remove quotas on performance management
