Most Enjoyable Summer Ever, Have Accepted my Full-Time Offer!!

5.0 of 5 stars

Mclean, VA | October 2016 | FORMER INTERN

Uppers

I had a lot of autonomy in my work which was incredible that they trusted me enough to create the vision for my project, but my manager, mentor, and team members were always around to assist and collaborate as needed. I loved the company culture; everyone cared way more about making sure you were getting your work done well than clocking in the acceptable amount of hours. Also I liked having all the programming with the other interns. Did I mention Disney World and happy hours out the wazoo???

Downers

A lot of managers were located in different offices, but that ultimately contributed to the autonomy I liked having in my work.

Comments

Definitely apply!! I recommend the McLean (DC) office as it is Capital One's headquarters.

Would You Recommend

Lots of Fun and interesting work

Super smart and kind people. Awesome innovation. Meaningful work. Really cool office space.

Downers

Tysons as a location is pretty far away from DC proper and transportation was unreliable

Advice to Potential Interns

If you're looking for a place that has people who actually value your growth and autonomy while getting a taste for cutting-edge tech in the financial space, Capital One is the go-to. Capital One is really pushing the boundaries of how the financial sector operates now while having an incredible socially-minded agenda, which is first and foremost manifested in all of the people who work here.

Capital One AIP Exceeds Expectations

5.0 of 5 stars

Plano, TX | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

You can tell that all of your coworkers were super-smart and had ample opportunities at more "prestigious" companies, but they picked Capital One because they have a life outside of work. Everyone genuinely enjoyed working with each other and there was mutual respect between everyone. The gym and cafes are phenomenal. Overall, the Plano campus culture is very collegiate.

Downers

It is irritating, at least for me, to work in an industry so severely hamstrung by federal regulation. That is definitely something to consider if you want to work for a bank, period, so Capital One is no exception. Apart from that, some people were quick to complain and have a pessimistic, woe-is-me attitude at work, while the majority was generally enthusiastic and productive on the job. These "bad apples" are unavoidable at any company, I guess.

Advice to Potential Interns

If industry or product is your chief determinant for picking an employer, Capital One might not be the place for you. However, if culture, work-life balance, and/or "interesting-ness" of work are, then Capital One is perfect for you. I'd rather enjoy the people I work with and the rigor of the work that I am doing and not really care about the company's products than vice versa (hate the people, be bored by the work, and yet be excited about the company).

Advice to Management

The most annoying thing was the constant specter of federal regulations hanging over us, but there is nothing we can really do about that. The biggest thing I would fix is to get the employees to complain less. Capital One is a great place to work! We could use more positive people here and less of the grouches.

Sample Interview Questions

1. Explain different ways you would monetize a mobile game and evaluate which is best, given certain economics from each monetization strategy.
2. Describe 10 distinct ways you would innovate a salt-and-pepper shaker.
3. Give me one product you really like, give me some ways to improve it, and then explain how you would execute these improvements and take the subsequently improved product to market.

Would You Recommend

Requesting data access

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't underestimate Capital One-- they give you consulting type problems without working you to the grind. They expect you to be on top of your game while you are at work, but don't want you at work 60 hours a week. Also, there is so much problem solving and learning that you will gain a lot of valuable skills from this internship.

McLean, VA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

1. Impactful work/assignments
2. You're assigned a buddy and a mentor and they help you throughout the internship.
3. Regular sessions to let you know what's going on in other parts of the organization- you feel that you belong.
4. An exciting mid-summer trip! (Mine was to disney world, Orlando)
5. Oh, and the interview process is amazing- it is tough if you think of the difficulty level, but at no point do you feel that it is exhausting, or mundane. Each part of it is challenging and interesting, and people are always super nice to you, which matters a lot as you feel a lot more comfortable and you do your best.

Downers

If I had to point out one thing, I would say that there were probably too many sessions, and you could not attend each of them while working on your project.

Advice to Potential Interns

They really care about you, and they are also looking to hire full-time associates from their intern pool.
