    I worked at Sovereign Bancorp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Long time employees are wonderful and supportive

    Cons

    Staffing issues are horrendous---new hires are not given the full picture of the stress environment that exists on a daily basis. Conference calls are so critical coming from upper management--there is little to no value given to employees efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should evaluate the way employees are stressed out to the point of leaving.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
