    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.

    Pros

    Awesome company, very sensitive to employee and customer needs. Working on improving every aspect of the company to ensure a great transition into Santander late 2013. Most of the bad apples are gone and staffing has become more polished, knowledgeable and professional in order to adapt to the changing environment.

    Cons

    working on some system issues, correcting past image issues. some of the former bank employees are still there making it harder for everyone else. soon to be gone hopefully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue valuing your internal talent and recognizing employees. need to work on changing staffing models to accomodate sales and service needs.
