    I have been working at BBVA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As I've shown aptitude and skills in certain areas I have been given additional responsibilities and opportunities to advance and hone my skills. The salary and benefits are great, I genuinely like my coworkers, and I have had the two best managers of my career while working here. We are a team and each jump in to help whenever needed. Sometimes I put in extra hours but I'm rewarded by flexibility of schedule when needed...

    Cons

    There could be better communication about company-wide prioritization of projects. There are lots of projects, both big and small, going on at the same time and when needing work or assistance from other groups it's difficult to determine which project is the higher priority.

    Pros

    The bank offers great benefits such as 401k matches along with health benefits that a reasonable. The ability to move up within the company is definitely present. Recognition is given by upper management.

    Cons

    Micro management and aggressive sales goals that increase year over year. At first the goals are attainable then gradually increase making it challenging unless your skill and work ethic increases by over 20% yearly

    I worked at BBVA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Global organization with opportunity to grow your skill sets. Great people (non exec management). Culturally diverse. Above avg pay and benefits. Depending on your role, cross training among the countries. Challenging work environment.

    Cons

    Foreign executive management that is only focused on a 2-3 year tenure then back to Spain with a promotion...doesn’t know or understand the US culture. Micromanagement. Priorities change daily resulting in constant chaos and low productivity. Condescending management (woman berated and crying in meetings). Higher than normal executive and senior managers leaving due to “health reasons” with no job to replace.

    Advice to Management

    If you are considering employment here, ask about turnover rates and how they compare to the industry. Also ask about the employee satisfaction scores, how they compare year over year and why the company didn’t administer last year. Most of the positive comments here are from HR executives artificially inflating the ratings. However, your direct manager and where you work in the company can make a huge difference. Good...
