Ideal, well structured, realistic, challenging, and full of opportunity to learn!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was treated like a full time employee, I was part of a well organized program, I had my own project, I has the ability to reach out and learn about other areas of the business.


Downers

I could have been given more work to help out with- I finished my project early and spent a lot of time fine tuning and preparing my final presentation because there was no need to do anything else


Advice to Potential Interns

Capital One's internship program could not have been more perfect, they offer everything that most students look for in an internship and have an amazing culture that promotes workin hard as well as enjoyment.


Advice to Management

I have no complaints!

An incredible internship experience where I learned a lot from very smart people, had fun, and recieved an offer
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

1. Learning opportunities- work with a lot of smart people from different backgrounds; report to a director (high up); are given a real and important project
2. Company culture- everyone I met at Capital One is not only very smart, but also fun to hang out with!
2. Work life balance- work around 40 hours a week (I tried to work more to go above and beyond but they really encourage having a great work life balance)
3. Intern activities- planned events, trips, and learning expereinces


Downers

Honestly, there was nothing about the internship I didn't like. I had an incredible experience and there is no where I would rather work. The one thing I am changing for full-time is location, where I will be going to McLean instead of Richmond.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't underestimate the epxeriance you will have at Capital One! As mentioned before, you are given a real project that really matters- not busy work or getting coffee. You also have a great support structure between a director, manager, and intern "buddy". There is a great work life balance at Capital One, so you will have a lot of fun as well! It is a great internship. As a Business major with a concentration in consulting, the work is very similar to what you would do as a consultant, but you also get a better work life balance and get paid just as well (way better if looking at a per hour basis). There is a great company culture where everyone works hard but also plays hard.


Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! There is nothing I can think of to improve- my experience was incredible.

A great way to gain experience and also complete a meaningful project
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Having my own project for the summer, where I feel like I actually provided something of value to the company by the end. Also, the people (both interns and full times) were always helpful and very welcoming.


Downers

Sometimes the work was boring, and most of my days were spent on the computer trying to get the data that I wanted, which got repetitive after a while.


Advice to Potential Interns

They expect you to work hard and independently, but also to ask for help when necessary. Capital One is a great place to start a career or spend a summer, and they'll give you lots of training and general business experience in a friendly yet challenging work environment

Incredible Experience

All the great people I was able to meet while at Capital One

It was a little disorganized sometimes with access issues


Advice to Potential Interns

Pace yourself with your project and you should do great.

Great experience taking full ownership of a project at a company with an open work environment and great corporate culture
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed taking complete ownership of my project. More senior employees were always available and open as a resource.


Downers

There were times where I received conflicting advice from people on my team.


Advice to Potential Interns

You will get a great chance to work from start to finish on a single project while gaining valuable experience collecting and analyzing relevant data. Capital One also was very generous in giving full-time offers at the end of the internship.
