    I worked at Sovereign Bancorp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Location, Reasonable Paid Time Off.

    Cons

    Organization is very fragmented. It is extremely challenging to make any progress. There are two different cultures functioning at once. TONS of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Try thinking a bit outside the box. While the regulatory environment is difficult to navigate, there is still a balance to strike. Red tape is one cause for some of the poor moral. Try fighting back for those that are on the battlefield.
