    I worked at First BanCorp (puerto Rico)

    Pros

    The benifits including health insurance and dental insurance are resonable. Christmas bonus is a plus. Busines hours are good.

    Cons

    Internal employees, unprofessional employees. They dont like to help each other. The Compensation is good but if you have more than 18 years working you expect more money and there is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give seminars to employees for a better communication and behavior. Opportunities to increase your experience.

    I have been working at First BanCorp (puerto Rico)

    Pros

    Definitely, people who work for FirstBank willl put ALL their knowledge at work. For me proving my knowledge and guide others according to what I plan, instead of what is imposed to me, is a pro.

    Cons

    My personal experience is dealing with a top management that lacks from the knowledge and skills needed to run this business. This lack of experience narrows their scope and cunducts them to poor performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to Caliper 360 and here the voice and opinions of lower levels. They have the experience and the deal with mediocre managers on a day to day basis.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People are great. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Compensation and salary raises should be better. There has to be better plannning for all tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication has to improve between Senior Management and employees.
