    Benefits are fairly good, considering he current insurance market. The company offers a bonus vacation day every day known as "employee appreciation day."

    The staffing in the branches is very very thin which causes a lot of stress with customers & employees. Scheduling can be challenging.

    Hire more staff - floating staff

    I worked at BBVA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Due to mix between Spanish, Latino and American cultures in the office (NY office), overall environment was somewhat more relaxed and not very uptight or strict. Easy going. Generally, friendly faces.

    Cons

    Compensation tends to be below market standard (at least in NY and in CIB). Slow professional development, no clear career paths. Does not use 3 year promotions used at other IB banks for analysts, associates, etc. Management doesn't seem to know what to do with the bank... In my two years there were constant rumors of restructuring and layoffs. From the looks of it, the bank is always restructuring. Also, little effort put into retaining younger talent. There was an inverted pyramid structure in many of the teams.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of junior staff in order to avoid them leaving. Promote meritocracy over networking and connections
