I transitioned into the banking industry from a consulting background, and I was used to working with other banks, both on the business and tech side. I thought I knew what to expect from the work environment and culture. I was pleasantly surprised to learn CapitalOne operates under a different paradigm: people first!
The folks I have had the pleasure of working with are quite helpful, are understanding of work-life-balance, of the need for professional development. etc. While the compensation could be better compared to other banks or tech firms, other benefits like: insurance, employee stock, yearly bonuses are quite generous.
