    I have been working at Capital One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Wonderful teammates, easy place to make friends in a new city - Emphasis on data-driven decision-making, great place to pickup technical and analytical skills in a world that increasingly values these things - Tech stack is getting better, unlocking opportunities for more product-like work - Lots of smart and motivated people to work with, I've rarely/never felt like I had to carry the team. I always felt... supported by hard workers

    Cons

    - Workload can be very high during deadlines due to: tech migration, regulations, contract renewals/negotiations, internal mandates - Workload varies heavily by team - Different leaders have very different styles, and different teams have different pressures - with some you'll learn great technical expertise but feel stressed most of the time, with others you'll learn great leadership skills but less opportunity... to develop on technical skills - There is sometimes bureaucracy - your project may not fit your development goals, or a big project may get stalled for a variety of reasons - There can be a general sense of under-staffing, or commitment on projects, leading to high workload and stress

    Advice to Management

    - Empower associates to push back and advocate for their work-life balance - Put more emphasis on surveying morale and mental health. Don't just pressure leaders for results. If you only measure results, then other things will suffer.
