    Pros

    Tight knit, everyone knows everyone. A lot of opportunity to move up or around if you want to make a career in banking.

    Cons

    Moderate sized bank (at the time) so limited resources. Meant it was behind technologically for certain services which was hard to explain to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times.

    I worked at BBVA Compass full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is great outside of Arizona East Valley management.

    Cons

    Stay away from East Valley Arizona DRE. Ask anyone and you will find out fast that management is non-supportive, unethical in ratings, promotions, and salary increases. Move only friends in for jobs. Human resources backs up unethical behaviors. Lies to employees and will lie and throw people under the bus for invalid reasons. Completely worst management. Known for highest turnover, yet nothing is done about it. Stay away. We recently had another restructure losing more jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Remove poor and risky management arizona east valley

    Why in the world anyone would say anything positive about this bank. I regretted working there. Wasted my 2 years working at Conpass bank. Bad bad bad.

    Cons

    Everything. Careless culture. All about sales. Human resources look for reasons to terminate staff. Every year they lay off employees. Bad place to work. Bad company. Stay away.

    Pros

    small bank, family/team feel. Best banking products make it easy to sell to consumers. hours are great 9-5 or 10-6 during the week. 9-1 or 9-3 on saturdays depending on location. Plenty of PTO. Great opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Hard to use systems and lack of training make it hard to get started here, but once you get your feet wet it becomes easier.
