Need Help Deciphering Banking Titles

ArabianKnightArabianKnight Posts: 276Member ■■■□□□□□□□
SO I am looking around on financial career sites and there seems to be a wide range of job levels for example, analyst, associate, VP, SVP, manager, senior manager, Director Senior Director.....some positions seem to have no management functions like this one, but the title is director

Anyone work in the financial sector or at Capital One willing to share some insight into these job levels/hierarchy?

    No idea what job you are talking about. The link just takes you to the main job site to search for a job. Whats the title of the job exactly? Maybe we can search for it.

    Please keep in mind that titles mean NOTHING. I work in the financial sector and even internally many positions labeled "Infosec Engineer" have absolutely nothing in common. Always look for job duties.

    Banks always love the VP title, seems like everyone is some sort of VP. Jr VP of Customer Support = bank teller.

    I concur. Take the job title "Sanitation Engineer". In one company/township government it could refer to a highly trained civil engineer for improving the sanitation of communities, in another it could refer the guy that barely holds a high school diploma that empties garbage cans into trash trucks. The job title in one company may or may not be the same job duties in another company with the same job title, even in the same industry.

    Trying to decode what a job title is at a company without a list of job duties is an exercise in futility.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    From what I am reading, that sounds like a CSO direct report (at least it is in the FS company I work for) which is my boss's role. This will be the main Cyber/Threat Intel leader at Cap One
