    J'ai travaillé chez Capital Group en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    (Traduit de l'anglais)

    Avantages

    La compensation est super. On vous offre des formations au cours de votre carrière pour vous faire progresser. On vous offre la mobilité interne ainsi que des opportunités internationales. Les relations avec les superviseurs sont ouvertes, avec une forte transparence. L'équilibre entre travail et vie privée est respecté.

    Inconvénients

    La sélection à l'entrée est très forte.

    Conseils à la direction

    Travaillez plus avec les ressources humaines pour rendre la promotion plus équitable.

    J'ai travaillé chez Capital Group en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    A really work environment. Capital is financially healthy (understatement), and cares for its people as much as it does its clients and its shareholders. It pays a lot of attention to the quality of people it hires and promotes. Promotes employee well being.

    Inconvénients

    Decision making can take a long time. Career opportunities outside of Los Angeles are less obvious, especially when you are not in the investment group. Overall the cons are much less than the pros.

    Avantages

    Physical environment, some very smart & dedicated employees.

    Inconvénients

    Senior management in Marketing is destroying the culture by chasing power and corrosive political games. Leadership is non-existent.

    Conseils à la direction

    Employee engagement scores are through the floor. Quit fiddling while Rome burns.

    J'ai travaillé chez Capital Group en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 10 ans)

    Avantages

    Used to be the people, the environment, and core values.

    Great "diversity and inclusion" and programs to give back to the community.

    Inconvénients

    Directors are the weakest link in the organization, specifically in the shareholder services department. Directors are incapable of fairly assessing performance or building high performing teams. This fact is supported by the recent low engagement scores and comments.

    Performance is NOT consistently assessed or managed fairly within a site, let alone across sites.

    Layoffs

    Lack of trust

    Conseils à la direction

    Performance has nothing to do with "Diversity and Inclusion"! So, stop managing "Diversity and Inclusion" and performance like it's one in the same.

    Je travaille chez Capital Group à plein temps

    Avantages

    • While actual salary is slightly below industry standards, if you perform well, the bonuses and retirement plan more than make up for it. Under these circumstances I don't think there's better compensation outside of one of the big tech companies.

    • Some of the most smart, friendly, and talented co-workers, who come from all walks of life and experiences.

    • While diversity still needs lots of work (most of senior-level management are white men), there is still good general representation of women and minorities, and a fair number in higher level positions. You'll also find people of all ages.

    • Company places great emphasis on giving back to the community, which is reflected in the many volunteer opportunities, and 2:1 corporate matching of donations.

    • Pretty flexible in terms of working hours if you need to do things like go to a doc's appt. during the weekday. Some lucky people get to work remotely once a week. Overall, most people work 40 hours/week. Some unlucky people work a ton more.

    • Nicely designed offices in some locations, mainly the LA HQ. It is an open office plan but at least you still get your own desk and space, unlike the startup style of sitting side by side (like some of the agile spaces in Irvine).

    Inconvénients

    • The single most important thing that will make or break you is the manager you directly report to and your superiors. If they are incompetent or don't have your back, you will either be doing their job and not being recognized for it, or be thrown under the bus. Also, because your bonuses are highly dependent on their feedback, you are under their mercy if they don't like you.

    • Way too many meetings; can take up about 75% of your time. If you're a manager or more senior level, expect that to be 90%.

    • The company has a directive to cut costs, so they are overly reliant on contractors right now, as they are cheaper and easier to terminate. However the weird thing is even if the contractor is great, it is often difficult to extend contracts past a certain time period, and even more difficult to hire them full-time. Also, can take forever to hear back from applying for a job, interview, and be accepted. This affects both the person applying and the team waiting to get help. And when people leave or are let go, there's somewhat of a hiring freeze in some departments so many positions are not back filled and the remaining team is left to do more with less.

    • Company is going through their latest restructuring/transformation, which happens like every 2-3 years, which becomes super disruptive. It seems like we go full circle every few cycles. And these changes are done without much input from the people it most affects.

    • No clear process for most things.

    • Don't expect to move up, only laterally or into the hell of middle management, which there seems to be many levels of. People stay here forever (which can be a pro for some).

    • There is supposed to be a culture built around core values, with one that centered on respect for everyone. This is being eroded by some new senior level people who are creating a toxic environment by debasing others, or constantly changing direction without much reason. People are so afraid to speak honestly to them, preferring to just say yes to everything, or remaining silent.

    • Highly bureaucratic, way too much consensus building (though they will tell you it's about supporting everyone's unique perspective).

    • If you're a creative, it can be really boring, tedious work most of the time. The style guide is pretty restrictive, most things are templated, and you'll find yourself doing lots of production work. Also way too much time and emphasis spent on creating long, boring powerpoint presentations that are internal only.

    • Company is so legally conservative and risk adverse that it prevents the company from doing certain things differently. Also because of this, it takes forever to let go of under performers because of the fear of a law suit.

    • Technology is outdated, everything is locked down, or it takes forever to adopt new things/software/technologies/processes.

    • Some parts of the company say they are doing agile, but it's more agile in name and rituals only.

    • Like my title says, work can go one way or the other depending on your position or department. Marketing and IT are experiencing the greatest amount of turbulence right now.

    Conseils à la direction

    You constantly talk about empowerment...this cannot happen unless you have more faith and trust in your employees. Let them make decisions on their own, and even fail if needed.

    Inconvénients

    Repetitive and monotonous
    Very political - being an excellent employee isnt good enough to get promoted, you need to put on a show and cozy up to the right people

    Conseils à la direction

    Hire INTERNALLY first. So often a position opens up on a team and there is a solid associate who is primed to be promoted and progress in their careers, but instead someone is hired externally. Extremely demoralizing for an associate to cover the work for a position "above" them, then they see an external hire come in and fill the spot.
