    I worked at Banco Popular De Puerto Rico

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing. They are very pro-family. The benefits are amazing and they have allot of family activities. The company is like a community.

    Cons

    The salary in Popular is not competitive. The salaries in banks of Puerto Rico is not as high as in other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider being more just with salary. I used to manage a huge product in the company and was payed less than an intern.

    I worked at Banco Popular De Puerto Rico as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    My position at BPPR helped me a lot to grow personally and professionally. The project I was assigned to was really meaningful and overlooked many of the divisions of the company, which helped me to understand what banking is all about. In addition, senior management and employees in general are extremely interested in seeing current students and recent graduates excel.

    Cons

    I did not face any negative situations during the length of my internship. It was a voluntary summer job, so I am not familiar with compensation and time-off policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep showing interest in young people! As an intern, I felt more confident in doing my job when senior management showed interest in my success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To get more involve with the process of selection of people selected for positions that they are capable to handle they have no knowledge and no people skills

    I worked at Banco Popular De Puerto Rico as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience! As an intern, I got the opportunity to meet a lot of coworkers and learn from their knowledge and skills. Exposure to tasks was over my expectations and completely satisfactory in overall, as well as the final outcome of my internship.

    Cons

    Compensation might not be the best, though they offer many benefits; and work can be very time consuming in terms of the work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture of the company is very warm since it feels like a big family, which was very nice!! Management should continue embracing that family/caring feeling.

    I worked at Banco Popular De Puerto Rico full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of learning and skills development for handling cash, state and federal laws. Great responsibilities and prestige. Able to meet a lot of people and contacts.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive. Minimum wage salary when handling large amounts of cash on a daily basis, constant risk and being accountable for specific tasks. To get a monetary incentive for your productivity is almost impossible and the tiniest detail will count to not give it to you. Career opportunities are available to those who are best friends of upper management and not your qualifications or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bank Representative (or tellers) are the face of the branch to the customers. They should be the compensated accordingly considering the high customer traffic, responsibilities and safety risks on a daily basis.
