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

    Pros

    Some of the highest level executives are very conscious of employee morale and have launched several improvement initiatives. You can learn a lot in this company; maybe even grow IF you get a good direct manager. 

    They have excellent benefits in terms of insurance, paid time off, gym, loan discounts, 401k and other stuff (normal or below average salary however) and they enjoy taking time off to hold mixers and celebrate every occasion.

    Cons

    Bureucracy runs heavy (excessive meetings, excessively strict protocols) and many are willing, if not trying, to step on others to advance. It can be very toxic and exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making changes as only you have the power. Also, responsibility and accountability need to be embedded into the culture, not worn on your sleeve.
