    Pros

    It pays the bills, but it's not the best place to work. Its nice to be working, and the heat works. They also have a pretty good cafeteria.

    Cons

    Benefits and pay are not good at all. They are haphazard with projects. Not very organized at all. No tuition reimbursement for 18 months. Spanish is the highest priority for qualification.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan. Organize operations so that you know what is going to happen and when. Instead it seems like projects start and you hope they come out the way you want. Over schedule and over budget is more like it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Was paid fairly for my responsibilities

    Cons

    Employees spend all their time talking about how bad it is to work at Sovereign, cost of benefits is really high, no feedback or direction from senior leaders, unrealistic goals, senior managers are all ex-pats and have no interest in knowing how banking works in the United States. Total cookie cutter approach to banking. Goals and direction of the company constantly changing.
