Some departments are worth giving a try. But you just have to know you'll face challenges and getting to the top will require a lot of personal sacrifices. If you are further in your carerrr and have a family it is really hard to stay in the game.

    Maybe. Some areas are pretty forward but when you look at the top of the house, it's pretty old school. Men in suits. And women who are more aggressive and leave bodies in their wake are the ones who elbow their way up.

I love, and am most thankful for, the freedom and flexibility to balance work and life, as well as to take ownership of your career. My leadership is incredibly passionate about making sure each of our associates are doing work that is truly fulfilling and inspiring. Never have I felt limited by hierarchy, role, team, etc. My opinion feels valued and I have many ways to voice it. I love that I can take an idea and run with it, without needing layers upon layers of approval. The pay and benefits are fantastic.

Capital One is making significant progress in diversity, including a jump in the number of females executives recruited and promoted over the past couple of years. There is still work to do at the top levels of the organization, though. But overall as financial services companies go, it is working to be forward leaning and there is a vibrant, lively women's network that does a lot to support women throughout the company.

Great benefits for maternity leave. Recently went from 12 to 18 for moms and 2 to 8 for dads. It would be wonderful to have more working moms in senior leadership positions.

I think a big step forward would be to see more women in leadership roles who are balancing family and career. There are increasing number of female leaders, but they tend to be childless or have a stay-at-home spouse - so they're essentially thriving in a male-established culture rather than changing it. Culture is changing though, so if women are willing to push for their needs while still delivering value, management is generally willing to meet them. I'm in middle management and personally have a high degree of flexibility - I can't imagine I could find this combination of flexibility and compensation elsewhere.

    Flexibility/culture varies from department to department, manager to manager. You also have to be assertive and confident leveraging the flexibility, even if others don't. I have a high degree of flexibility, but I feel that I've "earned" it, having been at the company for 18 years and earning promotions while working flexibly (but not advertising it)

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    8 paid / 4 unpaid

    policies are much improved (leave has increased) since my maternity leaves 12 and 7 years ago.

Capital One is the best job I've ever had. It's incredibly rewarding to work at a place that cares about its Mission, has bold aspirations, is full of smart and talented people -- and, that also enables a great work/life balance (our founder and CEO has eight kids!).

Thy are trying to promote diversity and improve policies to attract/retain women. I believe they do a better job t the junior levels.

    Depends on the role and your line of business. Overall, I believe it is a flexible place to work but the need for long hours (or after hours work). Additionally it is predominantly male and not many working mothers in senior level roles.

I have been part of a number of efforts to improve gender diversity at Capital One over the last few years. While there is still a ways to go - especially at more senior levels - I see a strong commitment to making progress on this front.

    Most roles and departments offer flexible work arrangements - many of the teams are spread across geographies and connecting over phone or video is a norm.

Great company for work-life balance, bad for career growth. Things are slowly changing for the better, but it will take a while for women to really have the same opportunities as men.

    Generally, employees are trusted to work from home when needed and encouraged to take vacations (which are not tracked/limited)

    Maybe. The work-life balance is great, so if you're okay with not being promoted at the same rate as men but having the ability to take time for yourself and your family, it's worth it.
