I worked at Grupo Santander as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great experience, good networking, and excellent on your resume.

Cons

They use their interns, it's basically free labor for them. I was warned about them using their interns, and how people had been with them before and not offered a job, I insisted I would be better than them, but ended up like I was warned. They will promise you a job and ask you constantly if you are really going to stay at the end of the internship, but they wont keep you, it's just so you give your best.

Advice to Management

Get organized, follow on your promises.

    I worked at Grupo Santander as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The position did pay very well.

    Cons

    While being trained, every single employee tells you a different way to do the same process. The turnover is astronomical. Never have I seen so many people there one day and gone the next. They are dishonest about everything in trying to protect their interests. The Feds will eventually shut them down.

    Advice to Management

    Get management that did not obtain their degree from University of Phoenix. They are micro-managers and sheep herders. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing and vice versa. Culture and values???? They don't exist.

    I have been working at Grupo Santander full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy life style.
    Above average compensation for the amount of contribution required/expected
    Strong international network

    Cons

    Weak leadership. Most of the sr. mgmt operates from a fantasy island high above the clouds. Completely disconnected from reality. The explanations and proposed solutions to most problems are usually a call for increase in headcount. "More hands on deck"
    Weak wholesale banking risk mgmt team. No risk (or business for that matter) is good risk.
    HR recruiting is completely worthless
    Clear culture clash between the Americans and the Spaniards. Very apparent in the cliques formed
    Lack of standardized and enforceable controls blatant in many areas of the bank.
    IT/manufacturing functions hold the bank by its balls. No one wants to admit it.
    Unqualified employees are rampant.
    Nepotism is very rampant. Every new hire you can't help to ask "who's your daddy and what does he do?"
    80% of the work is done by 20% of the people within most groups, while compensation is not very correlated.
    Career development weighs heavily on political relationships rather than merit.
    Employee satisfaction is at a all time low across the bank.
    Incentive models designed are flawed.
    Inability to attract and retain talent & bleedingly high turnover rate in key areas of the bank.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to attract and retain talent. Find a way to obtain opinions from the people who are actually doing the work instead from people spend focused on how to lie and blow smoke up you know what.
