    Pros

    Fair to good pay, commensurate with experience. High level of exposure to upper management. Good effort on behalf of management to cultivate a good work atmosphere (specific focus on becoming a "100 Best places to Work" company). Specific to the market in which I work (Southeast Texas) I have experienced a very high caliber of employee. Company vision to become the "Best Universal Bank in the U.S" is appealing.

    Cons

    Technology is terrible which was not initially viewed as a difficult barrier to overcome, however a minimum level of system functionality and reliability is required to be productive. Job specific training leaves alot to be desired. FAR too many initiatives to manage and implement properly. The void between the policies, procedures, products, and services offered by the three primary lines of business (retail, commercial, and wealth management) is appalling since the bank considers itself a relationship bank... read this comment as the right hand doesn't even know the left hand exists. No community banking model (all holes at BBVA Compass are round which leaves lots of perfectly good square pegs laying around without a home). And now for a strictly personal issue that I was never able to overcome: I came up through the retail side of banking, having done literally every job in a branch from working the teller line to managing a branch to covering a region as a business banker. Upon my most recent transition to commercial banking I was very disappointed to learn how most of the commercial bank views its retail brethren. If I heard the comment "retail idiot" once I heard it a hundred times and it became harder and harder for me to resist the urge to comment to the contrary.

    Advice to Management

    Management's stated goal of retaining talent in 2012 is very forward thinking because the bank is becoming an increasingly difficult environment to work in.

    I worked at BBVA Compass as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is well respected. There were some good benefits and giveaways. Also most people were friendly. We were also given the opportunity to work on some high value projects.

    Cons

    There wasn't much accountability among the marketing department. There seemed to be a lot of finger pointing among employees, not much of a team environment. Also, my supervisor decided to throw any work she had not completed at the last second on me or refuse to provide adequate instructions for complicated tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you promote the right people.
