    Pros

    High pay, benefits, 401K matching, benefits package is fairly reasonable.

    Cons

    Be prepared to interact with inappropriate male directors if you are a female. Employee Relations is useless in assisting if your direct male manager is sexually harassing you and your other female peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a person produces doesn't mean they are fit for a manager role. Take note of how many people turn down offers for being this person's direct report and do not accept. Red flag.

    Pros

    Okay pay, basic benefits met; only basics met, nothing beyond that, many great consumers, and some team work.

    Cons

    Huge ego managers- want productivity but don't want to advice on it since it makes them look bad - two way fools, hypocrite workers who rat you out and get you fired- therefore look out for yourself; don't care about others. Have problems with manager or coworker, find somebody in charge who favorites you and get them out.

    No great raises or pay, short-staff in branches, hours cut, and little mistakes get you fired, again protect yourself and don't take a fall for coworkers, not even the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the subordinates and not your unproductive workers. You guys "Want people to be the best in their work yet get rid of good people" for trivial mistakes or hurting your egos. Hurting your egos?

    You guys make the companies even more unsuccessful because you can't get your head out of your world. The bottom-line keep the company running, not loud-mouth, chunky skin, overweight bigots who just do meetings and no actions.

    Keep good people who are talented and get rid of backstabbers. Leads to productivity . If you can't do that, then you guys don't really care about the company, do you? Just keep on having incompetent workers who do bad jobs and are only good at backstabbing and sucking up to management with no real talent, how productive that leads the company, yeah all bs.

    Again, want the bottom people to care about their work? Then, stop being ego fools and get rid of hypocrites. Can't do that because you are self-fish? Then ask yourself, is my big ego and others I know making me useless to the company? Am I at fault for losing talented workers? Ask yourself these questions in the mirror if you are smart enough.

    I have been working at Santander Bank

    Pros

    it's a good bank to start at if you have no experience. the training process is helpful and paid by the company. employee benefits are ok.

    Cons

    too sales oriented. sales hold more importance than the quality of the bank and ends up hindering its customer growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should focus on improving the customer experience and products.

    I worked at Santander Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    my office was close to home. I had very good manager. Great co-workers

    Cons

    used car sales environment.
    constant software problems.
    lack of communication.
    very stressful and unhealthy environment.
    inability to help customers in a timely manner and efficiently due to the above issues.
    very little advertisement for unknown bank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employees are your best asset-make them feel appreciated, especially, considering how much of BS they have to deal with.
    On the other hand, they do not want our advice, because they are not in the position to change anything.

    Pros

    Some Awesome employees, wasted in what could be a good bank.
    Some very nice employees, a lot neutral and some not so nice.

    Cons

    They do whatever the head office in Spain tells them to do.
    Changing the internal software, but doesn't fix the problems, just moves on to the next department.
    Zero communication at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication, needed ASAP
    Only move on to the next changes after you get positive feedback from the department's Managers.
