Love the people and love the culture at popular community bank! Is a company I wouldn’t mind working again for as long as the opportunity arises. I loved the management I had while I was working there.

They have the greatest benefits in PR at the moment in my opinion, however once you’re in it can be very difficult to advance in your career. The culture is fast paced and depending on your area it can feel like you are a part of something very important. The trainings offered professional and personal are excellent.
Pros
Benefits, vacation days, sick days, Personal Time Off, health clinic
Cons
Needs improvement in salaries and job advancement opportunities

I've been employed for over 3 years, but 2 of those was as a temporary contract employee, so I was not eligible for any benefits, advancement opportunities nor full time opportunities, even though I was doing the exact same tasks as my full-time collegues. I was segregated as a second class employee, and when I was finally offered a full time position, I have to spend an additional 2 years as a full timer to be eligible for another position inside the company (If you score perfect scores in their employee evaluations). They will do everything in their power to keep you in the high stress call center enviroment because their retention is non-existent. Their rules and metrics are absurd, so its difficult to fit their criteria for the opportunity of leaving the call center.
Pros
Fixed schedule, laxed enviroment, some good activities.
Cons
No room to grow, too many rules to move up or out of the call center, Low wages for the amount of work they put on agents.

I don't learn much in the office, old technologies, nothing innovative. A typical day is arrive at the office, make the job done, talk to peers, lunch. The culture is good, good people, good peers, make the day more interesting. I dont have any enjoyable part of the job right now, the hardest part is not learn new things as I like. Managemente can better, perks and benefits are good, salary is a under.
Pros
2 hours lunch because I'm exempt. Perks, benefits. Freedom to arrive at any time to the office.
Cons
It's not exciting, boring job, not challenges, too much interruptions.

You learn something every day. They move you when they want to, but they try to leave you as close to home as possible. Great co-workers. Management is not always willing to help you grow in the company.

Name tags are made out of PAPER, even for the 'executives'. Managers are WEAK and not very helpful. Go to the book and figure it out was their style. Way too much manual work for current technology. A lot of favoritism in the ranks, some could do no wrong, others got blamed for everything, unjustly so.
Pros
Free Coffee and thats IT.
Cons
Terrible corporate structure

La institución es magnífica brinda beneficios que ya nadie puede obtener en empresas públicas o privadas fácilmente. El único detalle es que quisiera que los Representantes Bancarios no tuvieran limite de 20 hrs semanales y que pudieran obtener el fulltime más rápido. Todos comienzan partime. Pero es muy buen patrono.
Pros
Plan medico, buena paga, variedad de beneficios e incentivos
Cons
20 horas semanales a los partime

I've never wanted to work in banking, but I did. If you don't have a degree in business it's hard to get promoted.When I was initially hired in 2002, the HR person quoted me a salary of 25K. Later on they changed it. Never do verbal agreements regarding salary.
Pros
Free Spanish classes, Christmas parties...
Cons
Horrible increases or none at all.

Too many hours and not much acknowledgement of staff's hard work. In fact staff often feels unappreciated and there's low morale. Expectations are unrealistic since the Mortgage department is understaffed. They don't work as a team and are adversarial. Management is cutthroat. Unfortunately the list of cons is too long.
Pros
Benefits are decent
Cons
Cutthroat, very little resources and not much support.
