Pros

Developing new systems and better work life balance.

Cons

Has slightly lost that customer centric feel that the old bank had, but it is working well to get it back while incoropating big business.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    A bank interested in growth even in these difficult times. A lot of innovation going on throughout the bank

    Cons

    Management is looking for growth that exceeds the industry norms and that is hard to come by these days. Spending on innovation is slow and low brand recognition hurts sales and branch traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the limitation of the current environment while still striving for the future. Find a few things to focus on and stick with them. Live the "keep it simple" mandate instead of just stating it.
