    Pros

    No long hours; No pressure; Very familiar ( coloquial ) environment; Let's you have a good balance between personal life and work.

    Cons

    VERY low Salary; no room to grow; outdated system; little benefits to offer customers; no incentive for employees; no organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to grow and compete with the big banks ( Aka Chase, BoA, etc ) start by motivating your employees with better salaries/benefits and update your bank system!

    Pros

    Work from home benefits are great. Friendly people, flexible hours. Chance to explore new technologies.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to meet deadlines. Little to no appreciation from immediate and senior management. HR doesn't care [least effective team in the org], lot of red tape to reach HR.
    Small team, not may options to grow, things are not very professional. Not recommended for aspirants looking for a VISA sponsorship. Surveys are not anonymous. No work life balance.

    Former Employee - Sales & Service Associate  in  Bronx, NY
    Former Employee - Sales & Service Associate in Bronx, NY

    I worked at Popular Community Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    company is for beginners, it is a very good experience, I can help you with having something extra on your resume, I was there for nearly 7 yrs. you get to learn how to be a financial adviser, even tho that's not your tittle. you get to deal with customer, it is very customer friendly depending on the situation. 8:45 to 4:45 and some days till 6 and sat till 2.. thats crazy plus you get home almost 8 while you pick up ur children and get settle in... its never till the time they say, you sometimes got later than that.

    Cons

    management are very sneaky, they pretend to be your friend to then later insult your intelligence, embarrassed you, like you some kind of criminal. Regional management walks into branch thinking that he is hot stuff and does not greet in a way that is welcoming, It a way well am here now you better get to work or be on your tippy toes... How you walk in a place and give that type of pressure instead of being friendly and nice so your employee would not be scared of you.

    They do not promote as quick as you think they would you have to wait maybe years till you licked a lot of ass to get a position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more patient and lenient with your employees and have it a stress free environment. more promotion with in store not out side the store, every management or employee coming from chase now. smh

    at my branch we had my assistant manager who was a pervert looking at every girl that walked in there and saying things about how they looked.. like what kind of management is that. and then they wanna sit there and talk bad oabout their employeed

    Pros

    Very family friendly company. Great stability in the department I worked in. Low turn over rate. Very close-knit team and a great office culture.

    Cons

    Lower pay than others in the industry. Have to transfer to another position if you even want a modest raise. Sometimes it can be a culture shock if you're not Hispanic but if you're an open-minded person you'll love the people and the tight culture.

    I worked at Popular Community Bank part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with at the branch level. Atleast at the branch I worked, great Manager. Because of the small number of employees per branch 5-12 you become close to coworkers.
    I learned alot while working there.

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement. Lower pay rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Happy employee means a happy customer which leads to a sucessful branch. Fight to give employees who deserve raises, and promote when you see fit.
