"Forget You're Working at a Bank" With the Fun Culture at Capital One
Daring to dream, disrupt, and deliver a better way to bank for customers, Capital One brings ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to the financial industry. The banking company provides domestic credit and debit cards and offers financing, deposits, and lending activities—from home loans to healthcare—to deliver great value to people across the country.
“Capital One is such a very young and collaborative environment that you forget that you’re working for a bank,” says Kristen Cornelsen, Software Engineer.
Capital One fosters career development with a multitude of continuous learning opportunities. Its Big Data Academy, educational workshops, and programs are just a few of the ways employees build exceptional careers. The company also encourages cross-departmental collaboration, and team members provide peer-to-peer mentorship for curious colleagues looking to master multiple skills.
In addition to amazing office amenities, like adjustable sit-to-stand and treadmill desks, unlimited snacks, and pastry treats on “Bagel Day,” the Capital One office has truly created its own fun culture.
“We are not a boring financial institution. It’s not all about making money—it’s about helping people. It’s a bright culture of people who enjoy what they’re doing,” says Lily Amadeo, Data Scientist.
