    Pros

    You are given a lot of responsibility early on.
    The firm´s large balance sheet enables them to offer a lot of products to clients.
    Compensation is competitive vs peers.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy in many layers of the administrative staff. In general, things move slowly and require the approval and input of a lot of people.

    Advice to Management

    Promote productivity and avoid employees falling in comfort zones. Simplify the structure and processes. Other than that, everything is great.


  2. Some managers take their job too serious.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at BBVA Bancomer are that you don't really need much experience, they train you for the job for about 3 days. The job is easy, the customers are real nice, most of them atleast. the pay is ok for starting. I liked the job.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at Bancomer are that you have to work on weekends. Most managers take advantage of being managers.

    Advice to Management

    No comment.

    Pros

    You gain good Investment Banking experience without the punishing hours of Bulge Bracket banks. The bank is strong with Spanish and Mexican clients. Within Mexican Ivestment Banking it is strong in Capital Markets and Project Finance work. They´ve built out the team in M&A considerably and are slowly becoming a force in that product, still far from top tier Bulge Bracket houses.

    Cons

    Low Bonus, very very political and conservative organization where no one wants to introduce new ideas. HR is a joke. The bank doesn´t value employees.

    Advice to Management

    Implement HR and General Management best practices from leading banks.

    Pros

    The salaries are good enough in my experience.
    The work balance is very good. I rarely had to do extra hours.

    Cons

    The facilities are very outdated. Computers and office furniture are not up to times. Being a IT professional, to work with such obsolete computers was hard.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider invest more resources in update the equipment and office spaces. The bank profits are so high that this would not have to be a problem.
