    Pros

    Freedom to come and go, no management interaction unless you are performing not at their unrealistic level.

    Cons

    Lack Diversity, Division amongst departments , BBVA does not truly stand by the Code of Conduct. Favoritism is in full effect, Nepotism is a problem in departments. The mergers have left this company divided. Long term employees are not promoted., the rules bend for certain groups but are rigid and buy some rule book for the other group. Certain groups need degrees, accreditations, and Licenses. Other groups are excluded from those rules. Everyone knows this but pretends not to know.

    Advice to Management

    Truly embrace the Code of Conduct , Treat all employees equal, Embrace fairness, Stop following the crowd. Discretion should be the norm but it is the exception.

    Pros

    you can move up quickly if you want to and know the right people. good consumer and business products because it is easy to sell something when it really is the best option for the client.

    Cons

    BBVA Compass is constantly pushing its "core values" on us but their treatment of employees is inconsistent. yes you can move up in position quickly. 6 promotions for me so far under 4 years, but compensation is an insult for those of us who embody the compay values, and those who are unethical, self absorbed with no concern for clients or BBVA Compass always get paid the most and promoted to much higher and often 6 figure positions.
    Company policy and management enforcement is highly discriminatory and favoritism is celebrated, creating constant disparate treatment of team members. HR exists only when a people manager needs an excuse to fire an employee they dont like. selective enforcement of policy is the definition of disparate treatment . someone will end up suing them eventually and will bring the company millions in losses. have an exit strategy or start one now if you are currently working at BBVA Compass, i am working on mine for sure.

    Advice to Management

    do what you say, say what you do. stop taking advantage of good employees. have more loyaly to your employees, you undervalue your best talent and overpay your worst. stop with the favoritism and recognize that you would t be failing miserably in the US. if youd compensate your good employees properly and eliminate the political bs. it feels like JUNIOR HIGH
