    I worked at Capital Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great retirement plan (FYI - you're not fully vested until 6 years)
    - Great healthcare
    - Nice offices with amenities (at least if you work in a building w/investment group offices)
    - Stability - you're not likely to suddenly lose your job
    - Good comp with multiple bonuses / incentives throughout the year
    - Big company - possible to move around, sort of. I quit, but *was* offered a position in another business group.
    - Civil office culture - yelling & open disrespect aren't tolerated
    - Good coworkers - some really lovely people work there.

    If you're looking for a stable corporate job where you punch a clock and don't need to think independently, it's probably a good fit for you.

    Cons

    - Employee satisfaction varies dramatically depending on business group and manager.
    - Not a meritocracy - most places aren't entirely, of course, but it seems especially true at Capital.
    - Growth is often not possible because most associates are overburdened with volume of tasks.
    - Intelligence and honesty are not valued. Being able to play the game is.

    They promote and emphasize growth in theory, but in practice advancement is a result of politicking and interpersonal strategy. Get in good with the boss = get your workload reduced + get handed opportunities for exposure. I saw this happen at all levels, from senior management all the way down to admin assistants.

    Also - globally speaking - they're going through some big changes, so it may be a little extra bumpy for a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closely at concentrated turnover in a department - really, it IS you, it ISN'T all about the departing associates.
