Banking Operational Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 14, 2016
dealing with customers everyday needs, questions and concern, I am busy everyday. I have a list of task to be completed daily, monthly, and quarterly so I am consistently being productive. the hardest part is maybe not having enough time to complete things because there is always something asked of you. the most enjoyable is customer interaction,
Accounting & Finance Lead Specialist (Current Employee) – Wyomissing, PA – September 25, 2016
Excellent company to work for where my management team cares about seeing the employee grow and advance their career within the organization. The company also provides an excellent work/life balance by providing a flexible schedule for employees.
Easy going and relaxed work place with monthly goals, that thrived on customer surveys.
FullTime Teller/ Universal Banker (Former Employee) – New Cumberland, PA – September 21, 2016
A typical day at work started with me preparing my station for the work day and then balancing it out at the end of the day. I learned how to properly transact bank transactions, while also upselling and making sales calls. My teller manager and I got along great and we always covered and helped each other out when needed, we bonded from the start. For the majority of my time at the bank I worked by myself and had to conduct every incoming transaction. The hardest part of my job was transitioning from just a teller to the PBR position. The most enjoyable part of my job was gaining excellent rapport with all incoming customers and dealing with them on a daily basis.
Guaranteed lunch breaks and coordinated weekend working requirements
Not enough in branch help and too much promotion for inexperienced employees
Spanish Bank, Spanish culture - Not an easy place to work
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 20, 2016
Working with Spanish Bank and that also Santander - was not easy. Management team lacks expertise. Organization structure is like many shops in one shop. Every department head pretty much work independently. Every manager has his/her own approach to resolving issues - one going East and other going West. Everyday the direction will change. Months later we find ourselves standing the same place as day one.
To be successful at Santander Bank, one does not need to be a good banker, but rather a good Politician. Every office have politics but some like Santander have only politics.
Not much other than few good people I met, who did not had control
Poor management skills, too much politics, lack of professionalism
DQ Analyst and Risk Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Dorchester, MA – September 12, 2016
A typical day at work - performing BAU activities. Examples, building and running controls, generating reports, and delivering reports.
What I learn - Different Data analytical tools and their functions. such as, ACL, TOAD, JCL, SQL
Management - The management team in DQ department is the worst. Most of the managers are friends of the upper level managers. If you are people of color, you will never be treated equal nor seen as a valued employee no matter what you do. If you are from Spain you will have a privilege.
Co-workers - My co-workers are the best with some exception. If not for my co-workers and the love of the work I am doing, I would never worked for this bank for such long period of time.
Good place to learn if you are not people of color.
You will be judge by the color of your skin and not by the work you are contributing.
Compliance Project Manager (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 7, 2016
Santander Bank is going through growing pains with lots of change in senior management and processes. A typical day involves a lot of fire drills of tasks that are due that day with little to no notice. Though the company is going through change management with many ups and downs, it's filled with some of the most talented, passionate, and committed individuals I have worked with. The company is fast pace, diverse, with well intentions to grow in the US.
Branch Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 7, 2016
As a branch manager, I am lucky to have a great team. A typical day involves a jumpstart. During this time we make recognitions and set up expectations, we get everybody's commitments. We have scheduled call blocks and coaching sessions.
SME MANAGER (Former Employee) – Mexico, MO – August 24, 2016
It lacks on training for its employees. Its is a good place to work but the working shifts are more of 10 hrs per day. The management is good and the co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job is the long shifts because there is no family-work balance. The most enjoyable part is the great bosses that I had.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Reading, PA – August 23, 2016
I really enjoy the work I do at the bank. Sometimes difficult to work with other departments, but I guess that's anywhere you work. Benefits were great, and people were nice. Plenty of PTO offered, could use some improvement in work/life balance
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – CT – August 22, 2016
This is the most poorly run large bank in the world. The company has a high stress quota driven environment with NO SUPPORT. They don't care about their customers and care less about their employees. HIGH Constant turnover. Run don't walk away from this bank.
Teller (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – August 15, 2016
Working at the bank gave me a constant work schedule. I would always know my schedule in advance whereas other companies some weeks you could be working all weekend or not at all. The company gives out great incentives when achieving goals and starts off at a great base pay.
