    Pros

    Good people, not too stressful

    Cons

    pay scale. If you get a promotion to a new job you have to start at the bottom of the pay scale. if someone is hired from the outside they are usually put in the middle. This leads to employees that have been here for many years making less than a new person doing the same job. Because of this a lot of people try to leave and come back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fix pay scale

    I worked at BBVA Compass as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone worked as a team even outside of your own group. The pay is on par to maybe a little higher than some.

    Cons

    Some of the managers could be a bit rude and headstrong. The environment has been going through a lot of changes in direction causing many people being reassigned or let go over the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal job openings are advertised for all to apply, but there is not enough feedback to applicants why you were not chosen. Sometimes you get no feedback at all.

    Pros

    Products and Services are very competitive. Training is very good. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Company is in danger of turning to the dark side of just burning and churning sales force due to growth pressures. Treatment and retention of employees is a concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fall into trap of treating employees as machines and just a number to increase production. Take time to develop a rewarding culture while still holding people accountable.

    Pros

    Products make reaching goals easier. They promote from within and will help place you in a branch close to your home.

    Cons

    The company is in a growing phase. They have eliminated and consolidated lots of positions giving people more job titles and responsibilities but not training them well or at all. Constant revolving door. Banking centers are ghost towns with no employees.
