Capital One

Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2018 • McLean, VA

What I liked

Almost everything, it was a great experience! It was very nice of them to give us corporate housing too.

What I wish was different

It would have been nice to have a mentor/buddy directly on my team that could keep an eye on me, but we did have a buddy not on our team.

Advice

Make the most of it, don't just go to work, go home, and do nothing (like I did at times)

Management Rotation Intern

June - August 2018 • Plano, TX

What I liked

I enjoyed being exposed to the different lines of business and forming meaningful connections with associates around the various offices.

What I wish was different

I had a project this summer however, I felt like I was assisting on the project more than taking ownership due to the complexity of the assignment.

Advice

If I could share advice it would be to be vocal about what you want from your experience.

Product Management & Analytics Intern

June - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I loved my team and thought my project was interesting, strategic, and impactful. The pay was great and I learned a ton. Intern events, including a ridiculously nice surprise trip, were fantastic.

What I wish was different

Data access issues and delays in execution in the beginning of my project concentrated much of the work in the last couple weeks. The Chicago office is also small (4 interns out of 140 total), so I didn't get to meet many of the interns who were placed in larger offices.

Advice

I'd highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in consulting, finance, or product management. Capital One sends a survey after you accept the offer, and they place you on a project that matches your interests, which can range from growth strategy to investment banking-esque deal valuation to digital product management. The Chicago office is solely focused on Card Partnerships, so all projects in Chicago are surrounding that particular area.

Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2018 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

Capital One was a great company and they really treat their interns well. There were lots of learning opportunities, we got to meet lots of execs (including the CEO) and there were fun events along the way like hackathons, amusement park trips, a trip to DC, and more. The people were very friendly and supportive. The workplace was relaxed and the campus was beautiful.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship had been longer. It was a 10-week program with one week of onboarding. It was tough to get a lot done in that time.

Commercial Bank Intern

July - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved the culture and the tasks that I was assigned. Plus, the internship hosted many networking events and classes for me to attend.

What I wish was different

I wish I was notified about my work location further in advance. I had little time to find housing.

Advice

Network! Talk to people and learn about different parts in a company!
