Hard to get heard in meetings, but otherwise good. Travel is difficult and needed to advance.

Great learning opportunity at more junior levels; very few women in executive leadership. Company is struggling to promote and retain senior women.

As diverse as an organization as we are, exhibit confidence and access high visibility projects for mobility/promotions.

Women are not really seen at senior leadership levels here. More women are in the compliance organization in lower roles.

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)

    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!).
