    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 Management

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

    Pros

    If you really want a place where you can develop your career in banking, this is your place. They have a development center dedicated fully to teach and enhanced everyone.

    Cons

    I can't really say that there are any cons here.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lot of holidays and state of the art environment and equipment to work with

    Cons

    Miserable salaries, limited growth all best positions are for the friends and the cousins and people who belong to the elite that have of influence but not the capacity to supervise very frustrating situation

    Advice to Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
