    I worked at BBX Capital (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They care about their employees as well as their customer. They made sure all needs are met through training / professional development. A well product educated employee is a great advantage to the customer as well as to the institution.

    Cons

    It was a fast growing company that had lots of wrinkles to be ironed out.

    Pros

    Solid company with a good management team. Believes in work life balance and everyone is very friendly. Able to move up through the company.

    Cons

    Can be challenging at times to get new ideas considered and it can be a little frustrating when corporate outlook isn't communicated.

    Advice to Management

    Get new talent to diversify

    Pros

    Associates were very professional; all had a sense of accountability to perform their functions with integrity and in a timely manner.

    Cons

    The banking industry was hit very hard in general. This industry-wide condition stifled employee growth to the point that there were many years associates were not eligible for salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    In lean times where salary increases are not possible, make certain your valued employees feel appreciated, and know they are valued even though you are unable to increase their salary.

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

    Pros

    This was a great place to work. I worked at the Red Road Branch and My managers and colleagues were an awesome team. It was a fast paced environment, but we all worked together to run the branch smoothly. My manager Usha was the sweetest and most down to earth women. Javier, our branch manager was also very pleasant and would brew coffee for us every morning. It felt more like coming in to work with a team then just a normal job. The company overall had a lot of incentives that made your daily job more important. you were awarded for good work and were recognized. When the company decided to sell it's branched due to the falling housing crises, they were very considerate to their employees. The employees were given a 30 day noticed and the option to continue to work until we closed or to leave and find a new job. We were also given severance packages.

    Cons

    Due to the economy, the Bank was sold and a bulk of the staff were laid-off. This would have been an awesome career if the Bank did not close.

    I worked at BBX Capital as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a paycheck and you had to leave at 5pm each day (no overtime allowed) so there was that.

    Cons

    Atmosphere was terrible. Management openly encouraged hostility towards consultants with the full-time developers. Managers repeatedly referred to contractors as 'resources' and not by name and when they did bother to call you by your name - mispronounced it - after you were there a YEAR. No effort made to work together - constant struggle if working with full-time developers to get requirements or any assistance cause there was a fear you would take their job (and a resentment you probably made more than they did, etc. which mgmt enjoyed keeping alive.) So yeah - it was pretty awful, but paid my bills for a year so...

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    Learn that consultants have feelings too and if you want an efficient / productive workplace - you need to stop nonsense and micromanaging people and let them use their talents.

    No real cons other than they unfortunately were a victim of the housing crises. If they were still around it would be a great place to work.
