"There is a massive family culture here, you feel incredibly welcomed in the team no matter how long you have worked there for."
Graduate, Nottingham
"I don't feel that hierarchy is an issue in meetings as everyone is able to express their opinion. There are plenty of meetings and socialising opportunities with the team and with fellow graduates."
Graduate, Nottingham
"The culture is fantastic. There is an excellent work/life balance and it has a very flat structure - I could be in the lift with the Vice President and chat to them. There are also numerous social events for everyone a Capital One."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Structurally this organisation is quite traditional in terms of clear reporting lines, but I don't find it to be hierarchical. There's a lot of opportunity to work directly alongside those who are several levels above to influence their thinking, and see that influence in results. Culturally we're a relaxed organisation, but also extremely analytical and rigorous when we make decisions."
Graduate, Nottingham
"The culture here is very good - people are open and friendly and senior directors have desks next to graduates in our open office environment. Regular 'fun days' are organised to get the team out of the office in a more relaxed and social environment."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Everyone is friendly and cross-department teams come together to work on projects, leading to mutual respect and good relationships around the building. Only customer-facing functions generally lead to the requirement to stay outside of regular working hours, but if you are asked to stay late, there will be a pizza delivery in it for you. Socialisation is what you make of it, as the opportunities are there if you take them."
Graduate, Nottingham
"I think that the company is very innovative, encouraging new ideas and challenging old ways. Experienced team members actively seek to support and mentor new employees, and to offer both role and career advice."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Capital One has a fairly flat structure, and there is frequent interaction with directors and so on depending on projects, etc. We have a relaxed atmosphere in the office and there are often after work social events."
Graduate, Nottingham
"I feel that people are extremely sociable; the structure is very flat, with even senior directors sharing office space with new graduates. This encourages a great deal of knowledge-sharing and learning from senior figures."
Graduate, Nottingham
