    I worked at BBVA Compass full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Direct managers cared and backed you up if you were right
    Coworkers helpful and worked well together
    Vacation time was plentiful even for the lower grades

    Cons

    Change controls and procedures often bypassed based on political pull within the organization.
    Project managers do not plan projects very well. Key issues discovered during execution phase and not during planning.
    Core upgrade not going as well as press releases claim.
    Bank has layoffs about every October and chooses to lay off those with long years and not those who underperform.
    bank technology follows no strict standard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees who care about the bank and not those who are just there to collect a paycheck. Get all the work done in 40 hours. A failure to plan on your part should not become a emergency on your employees.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, salary increases, nice supervisors, get to learn a lot about loan servicing, opportunities to learn are there if you show your interest

    Cons

    Company seems to favor the Spanish culture and wants to mirror this in the US, such as reconstructing employee work areas to resemble a Japanese assembly line,
