    I worked at Banco de Sabadell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hard to find any pros... Flexibe hours, but you would have to ask for permission first.

    Cons

    - Very hectic work environment
    - No methodologies/strategies
    - No career development/growth opportunities
    - No training/mentoring
    - No benefits
    - Some employees are closed-minded, typical Catalan mentality.
    - Very little diversity
    - Long working days
    - Too long of a commute if you live in Barcelona and work in Sabadell
    - If you don't speak or at least understand Catalan, my advice is not to consider working here

    Advice to Management

    Get involved in your team members' career plans, make time to talk to your employees.

    Pros

    Si no tienes ambición es un trabajo garantizado sin riesgo.

    Cons

    Salarios muy bajos, oportunidades nulas, poca gente joven y con poca ambición, enchufes, etc. Pocas posibilidades de desarrollar una carrera laboral de éxito.

    Advice to Management

    Jefes poco preparados que han crecido desde un banco de pueblo y se les queda muy grande el gestionar personas

    I worked at Banco de Sabadell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Les horaires de travail sont très fixes et la situation géographique est excellente. Pour manger le midi, un restaurant d'entreprise se trouve à proximité. Enfin l'entreprise offre une bonne mutuelle.

    Cons

    Travail soporifique, inintéressant et très répétitif : aucun suspense sur les tâches à accomplir, on sait déjà ce que l'on fera dans 1 mois, 1 an... Salaires très bas, à la tête du client, ce qui crée des jalousies. Entreprise "incestuelle" où beaucoup se connaissent depuis 25 ans et ne supportent aucune nouvelle tête surtout mieux payée. Chacun connait tout sur chacun avec la bénédiction de la Direction qui ferme les yeux. Aucun suivi RH.

    Advice to Management

    Intéressez-vous à vos employés et utilisez leurs compétences. Recrutez les gens dont vous avez besoin et évitez les erreurs de casting, cela fait perdre du temps à tout le monde.

    Pros

    The only good reasons I can think of for working at Sabadell are the schedule (branches are closed
    on Saturdays & Sundays). You can accumulate a good amount of vacation days in a short amount of time. And that you don't have to worry about cross selling bank products, and opening new accounts.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible compared to other banks. I've worked at other banks were tellers can make extra money from a monthly teller bonus. At Sabadell you'd be lucky if you get one bonus during the year, and they don't give it during the holidays. No sick days at all. If you're sick and you need to make money you better go to work because if you don't, you won't get payed. Very few opportunities for advancement. I also noticed a high turnover rate. The tellers wouldn't stick around very long.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your hard working employees a decent wage. Part of the reason why I left the bank was because I hadn't gotten a raise in two years. And the bonus that we received in March had been cut. So it was less than the bonus that I had gotten the year before. If the bank is having such a hard time making money, I suggest that upper management do what a lot of other banks do, and start charging non-customers a fee to cash their checks. I think that would make non-customers either open up accounts to avoid the fees, or would make them go to their own banks to deposit their checks.

    Pros

    Good work - life balance

    Cons

    Very low salaries (around 30-50% lower than average market), no professional opportunities. Very low salaries, no benefits and therefor bad employees as good ones leave the bank after 1-2-3 years. They pay around 20k for full time employees, it's ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Get fired!
