    Pros

    They offer you exactly what you want, hear what you don't want to do, and then go ahead and do what they want!

    Cons

    You can't trust what you are told is your job description. Mgmt will change your job description without notifying you and you are stuck! You can't believe what anyone tells you! Bottom line, whether you are able or not, they will put you in a position that they want you in!

    I worked at Sovereign Bancorp full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Location, Reasonable Paid Time Off.

    Cons

    Organization is very fragmented. It is extremely challenging to make any progress. There are two different cultures functioning at once. TONS of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try thinking a bit outside the box. While the regulatory environment is difficult to navigate, there is still a balance to strike. Red tape is one cause for some of the poor moral. Try fighting back for those that are on the battlefield.
