    I worked at Santander Bank

    Pros

    Overall compensation and benefits package is competitive. Systems and training is good. Large company with lots of opportunity. I would recommend working there.

    For some individuals that are used to working in a smaller organization, the size of the company may be intimidating.

    Continue to utilize multiple communication channels so employees can stay informed.

    Pros

    I work here, so that's a good thing. Other than that there isn't much good to say about the place.

    Cons

    Everybody compared to me is a mental midget. Senior management is totally clueless and should mail it in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up.

    I worked at Santander Bank full-time

    Pros

    Basic math and English skills are generally required, but these requirements don't apply to native Spanish speakers.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is inherently biased in favor of Spanish speakers, and this tends to result in negative correlation between employee pay grade and employee mental capacity.

    Working here is insulting for anyone with a respectable academic background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go home

    Pros

    Great recruiting, on boarding, training, and support. They are a community bank with the strength of a global culture.

    Cons

    The servicing and sales portals are tiresome because you need to do double and tripple work for the simplest of things like adding beneficiaries or account holders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the branches and see what actions will yield the best results, on a personal level.
    Stop complaining and coach more.
