I loved Compass Bank. Not so much when BBVA took over.

Business Relationship Manager II (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at BBVA Compass full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat managers, competitive salary, benefits were good. The leadership does not care about the staff. They care about $$$

ConsBBVA uses a model used in Spain. They will cut back on staff just to save money and re hire at lower salaries. They have no real direction. Glad I left.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at BBVA Compass full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBBVA Compass has a good 401k program and it matches it. It also has a good vacation, sick time program

ConsThis is a horrible company to work for, some departments have no structure on how to run the business. Most employees are underpaid and overworked. They are always understaffed, no matter what department you work for.The only thing this company cares about is to make a profit even if it runs over its own employees

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to listen to employees and to care about them

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Conservative Banking Environment

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at BBVA Compass full-time for more than a year

ProsI found BBVA Compass to have a stable working environment with a great work/ life balance. My colleagues were also genuinely great people.

ConsI found BBVA Compass to be very conservative in most aspects, while this did help during the recession it now makes the company seem boring. Additionally, they didn't not seem innovative or progressive in many respects.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Third Tier Bank deluding itself it's Top Tier

Financial Sales Advisor II (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at BBVA Compass full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat employees, advancement possibilities depending on DRE (District Regional Executive)

ConsUnrealistic sales goals - graded on DDA deposits, loan production, overall branch deposits and branch customer service score. Personals goals for deposits raised 10% over last year, but failed to disclose that money markets/CD's removed from totals this year, How can goals go up if you drop 50% of the products in that category? Ridiculous layers of "specialists" that do nothing. Lots of unqualified branch managers and district managers. Zero work life balance if in a branch.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop pretending you are Chase and get rid of useless middle managers. Lots of lateral moving of bad managers that should have been canned. Disclose any changes in incentive plans.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Upper Management Issues

I have been working at BBVA Compass full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Base pay. Does a lot in the community in terms of community service and volunteer opportunities. Good family support.

ConsUnrealisitic sales goals based on branch traffic. Little to no support from management. Technology lags compared to other banks.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease realize Compass in not Chase bank, and reevaulate your sales processes.
