The all expenses paid Disney retreat for a week of the internship.

Downers

The scope of the intern project is a little vague in the beginning and more clarity would have been nice to start out but the end product turned out just fine.

Advice to Potential Interns

There is no better company out there with a more inclusive culture, competitive compensation, and top-notch work-life balance.

Excellent work-life balance and flexibility. A lot of time is invested in making sure the summer experience is one where you learn about the industry and have a big impact. Other employees are very welcoming and nice. Opportunities for you to show your thought process and ideas.

Downers

At times it is hard to schedule time to meet with people, as calendars are usually pretty full.

Best Summer of My Life

5.0 of 5 stars

Plano, TX | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The project I am working on directly influences my line of business, and I am treated like an analyst rather than an intern.

Downers

I have a good understanding of my line of business, but I don't know much about other projects or LOBs.

Advice to Potential Interns

Cap1 has a great work/life balance. If you are looking for a consulting or banking position but don't want to work insane hours, I would highly recommend Capital One. It's basically a consulting position within the company, where you get to finish your project instead of just passing a roadmap on and then leaving. The BA position is not similar to "banking" at all, but requires a similar skill set.

Advice to Management

I think we need to learn more about the other lines of business.

Work/life balance, the compensation, internship events, internship trip to Disney World, the amount of responsibility given to us, the type of work

Downers

More quant heavy than expected, skewed gender ratio although this is not unlike the rest of finance and tech (about 26% women in the internship program)

Advice to Potential Interns

Background business knowledge is not expected or common, heavily recruits from engineering programs

Advice to Management

Seek a more balanced gender ratio

McLean, VA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The internship program team is extremely organized, and provides educational speakers and events throughout the summer, the people at Capital One are extremely helpful to interns. The projects the interns get are all very different and interesting, and are real problems that have real business impacts.

Downers

A lot of time is taken out for intern activities, and so not as much time as I hoped was dedicated to working on our intern projects.

Advice to Potential Interns

In terms of as a potential employer, the internship works as a feeding track into the full time analyst development program, and so interning gives a chance to figure out what part of the business you are most interested in. However, I would highly recommend doing a lot of research into possible specific roles and different products that Capital One offers, and then ask to be placed in that specific department or team.

Advice to Management

I think while Capital One overall is a very diverse company, that did not reflect in the current intern pool, so working to ensure there is diversity even in the interns is important.

Sample Interview Questions

Interviews generally involve 2 parts. First is standard behavioral questions, "describe a time when..." "How did you approach a difficult project?" etc. The second part focuses on a business case, to ensure that you have the analytical capability for the job. This might include breakeven cost analysis, or similar.
