  5.  

    Leadership at this company is a joke. They do not get it and they never will. Company execs too out of touch

    Pros

    I cannot think of one

    Cons

    no vision, could care less about employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend time in your operation. A/C doesn't work, bathrooms don't work, yet employees are required to work in these conditions.

    I have been working at Santander Consumer USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    2 weeks paid vaca, 8 paid holidays, completely paid for health insurance, 10% annual bonus, very casual dress code, great people, employee appreciation week and more.

    Cons

    If you aren't a chosen person by upper management you will have a very difficult time moving up - they basically have someone in mind for positions before they are even posted. Negotiate your salary up front as they do not give any type of merit increase ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give merit increases and interview candidates for positions instead of already picking who you want based off of who's kid they are.

    Pros

    Solid 401(k) plan, cheap PPO, relatively flat corporate structure, shorts and polos attire

    Cons

    Company runs lean, so can be a bit taxing on hours at times, however, if you're from a banking background, these hours are a breeze.
