New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

I really enjoyed the case competition, because it gave me the opportunity to work on a completely different project from the one I was doing for my manager. This was great because it helped me learned that I enjoy strategy consulting more than marketing consulting, and t helped learn more about a very different idea of the company.

Downers

I was up in New York, whereas most of the other interns in the program were down in Richmond or McLean. That left the other NY interns and I pretty isolated. It would've been nice to have a bigger intern community.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are interested in the top strategy consulting firms (McK Bain BCG) but unsure about the work-life balance issues at those firms and/or want to hedge against the fact that those firms are very difficult to get into, definitely think about the Business Analyst role at Capital One. Many if not most of your managers and even some of your co-workers will be alumni of those firms, and you will be doing the exact same work and learning the exact same skills. It is an incredible opportunity.

Advice to Management

The program needs to to hire a lot more girls. Based on my discussion

They really spoil their interns. They took us all to New Orleans where we stayed in the Ritz. The CEO came and gave a q and a just for the interns. We received lots of attention from higher ups within our departments.

Downers

The industry is highly regulated which puts some constraints on the types of models one can build. I thought this was limiting.

Advice to Potential Interns

Have fun and learn a lot. It is a great internship so try and get the most out of it. Do not be afraid to ask for help because the people there will love to give it.

Advice to Management

Work a little better on introducing us to other full time employees.

Sample Interview Questions

Mostly case questions so study up. In the personal interview there where many "tell me about a time" questions, so have many good stories in the hatch.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The AIP program at Capital One was an awesome experience that exceeded my high expectations coming in

Advice to Management

More diversity, better communication between departments, more competitive compensation after first few years (which are great)

General business cases, not related to financial services, but about trucking and airplanes.
