    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of travel opportunity. Great for some (not for everyone)— especially for people avoiding their families or trying to have an affair. If you don't like your current team, you can often move to another one or relocate to another location. Great opportunity to learn new skills. Some of the leadership is inspiring. Nice workspaces for some.

    Cons

    Gender-biased, misguided, disorganized, competitive structure, reorgs frequent This place is trying to be a start-up with huge enterprise problems—it's awkward. Makes for a lot of wasted effort for people trying to get things done in an innovative way with business-side making the last judgment. Shiny object syndrome. Emphasis on PR moments over fixing real problems. Performance reviews lend to a gender- or personality-bias...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Don't just spend money on diversity & inclusion training — really implement some change in the culture. Get organized. Lessen reorgs. Stop acquiring other companies before you can handle what you have. You are not a tech company or a start up, just face it. Just be a better company, spend the money on hiring better engineers instead of on business people from failed start-ups who don't know how to...

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

    Pros

    Its a great environment everyone is friendly there. The cafeteria food is amazing and cheap. They have 5 by 8 shift schedules or 4 by 10 which is convenient. Job wasn't extremely hard. Also do incentives and they feed you ALOT and have a lot of extra activities and volunteer things. Amazing benefits, had a doctors office and a gym in building.

    Cons

    Have to be careful what you say on the phone its easy to get a reg or a BI which can make you lose your bonus. Their 90 day probation is extremely strict miss 2 days or late past 3 minutes you're out. Then if you're fired for attendance youre not allowed to be rehired even if you had an excused absence.

    Advice to Management

    Be more lenient on attendance policy, if its a hospital or car accident emergency thing an employer shouldn't be fired for that and not be able to be rehired.
