How are promotions at Capital One HQ? Interviewing for a manager position next week and trying to get an idea of how promos work there.

Browsing folks on LinkedIn, I see people going from manager to senior manager in anywhere from 6 months to 5 years, and senior manager to director in 1 to 8 years.

As far as base comp is concerned, this is what I've heard from folks here in northern VA (not TC, just base). Are these midpoints in the ballpark for McLean?

Manager: $140k
Senior manager: $160k
Director: $200k

Current info:
TC: $135k
YOE: 15 overall, 10 relevant

    I've never seen someone go manager to senior manager in 6 months unless they came in under leveled

      There are a bunch of folks in northern VA who worked for the same consulting firms that I did then moved to C1--at least two of them that I saw while creeping on LinkedIn did a ~6 month promo, but yeah, the rest were around a couple years on average, so they appeared to definitely be outliers.

      If you do very well manager -> Sr mgr agile I've seen happen at 1.5 yr but that's already pretty rare. Also after manager level it also need to have the role open (release train engineer) otherwise you are kinda stuck

    I wouldn’t believe anyone who says they got promoted in six months.

    Promo after 1 year would still be extraordinarily rare. 2-3 years much more common. The higher the level, the longer it typically takes.

    ADLs are paid less as compared to tech and product. Honestly speaking they are always honeymooning with very little responsibility. IMHO there are a few who work work there Burt off and most of them are waiting to be retired.
    I envy ADLs

      My background is more product--about a month ago I randomly was looking at C1 positions and applied for a handful that were split between product and delivery, since I've done both, but this is the one I got a call about.

    Not sure about Agile deliveries, but I have seen promos happen as soon as 6months, you have to knock things out of the park for it!
    The salaries seem pretty reasonable.Be open to a +\-10k
