Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Software Engineer in Capital One

Not really a tech company

Low comp, easy work, lots of favoritism, management doesn't know anything about tech. Work isn't challenging or engaging, a level below the tech companies. Promotion doesn't depends less on performance and more on extra curriculars


Work life balance

Great work life balance, smart people, questionable leadership

Great place to work for with amazing work-life balance, great benefits (401k matching, insurance, etc.). Lots of smart and talented engineers working on interesting problem statements with cutting edge tools and frameworks. Only problem is a vast majority of leadership is non-technical, and additionally there is a massive discrepancy between which organization that you work for (Card vs. Shared Tech).


benefits, work life balance, smart people, relaxed culture, interesting technology and tools


stack ranking used for performance management, work really tied to department that you belong to, majority of leadership (VP+) are not technical and driven by business instead

Great work environment and top benefits

Open work environment where leadership is accessible. VPs work on the same floor as engineering teams. Events are organized to help teams blend more. Capital One offers the best benefit package I have seen: 4 weeks PTO, unlimited sick time as long as it does not exceed 5 cumulative days, 18 weeks of maternity leave and 8 weeks of paternity leave, cheap insurance premiums. The down side of working at Capital One is the number of organizational changes in a year. However, ongoing projects are not impacted.


Benefits, culture


Too many organizational changes
