    I worked at BBVA Compass full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large global bank with good market share in Mexico
    Can participate in syndications.
    Bank is mostly unknown in US corporate circles
    Reputation is tarnished if bank is known by outsiders

    Cons

    Cannot lead agent any standard corporate financing
    Management has difficulty conceptualizing, organizing and implementing organizational improvements
    Spanish parent was bailed out (lucky for them)
    Desire to compete with the big US banks not matched by the quality, talent or execution intensity from the Spanish/US executives
    Approvals are slow. Underwriters and executives have difficulty with basic lending and capital markets concepts.
    Little accountability exists. Very few perform at standard levels.
    Compass acquisition is likely a $9 billion write-off if the bank was sold today
    Zombie bank owned by a zombie parent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the madness. Sellout to a bank/team that has the talent, resources and drive to fix these problems.
