    I worked at Popular as an intern (less than an year)


    Highest market share.
    Hands on client experience.
    Easy opportunity to shine as most of the workforce is mediocre.


    20% of the people do 80% of the work.
    There is always somebody in a made-up position that got the job because of friends/family connections.
    Cap to how much you can grow due to merit rather than relations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to attract a better work force. Adapt to the new banking trends and be less bureaocratic.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
