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

    Pros

    Enjoyed this opportunity as I got to use a lot of security tools.

    Cons

    More than 60% of the employees spoke spanish and some did not speak English well. Not a great environment if you are looking to find an English speaking team.

    Advice to Management

    Need to introduce staff form the local areas instead of bringing internation employees into a US company.

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

    Pros

    Collaborative and smart people, close to the T and parking (If you arrive early). Pay a little below the average for same positions in the financial sector and the benefit package is standard for the financial sector

    Cons

    Very stressful place to work with no vision of where things need to go or what to do. Things get escalated daily and senior management just focuses on the fire of the day instead of focusing on issues that will help in the long term.

    If you want to practice your Spanish, this is a very good place for you since 90% of time you are forced to listen to a conversation in Spanish or receive emails in Spanish

    Very flat organization In the US, therefore no room for growth. Also, it feels that if you are not from Spain or from Mexico, you are not going to go anywhere.

    No work/life balance. A lot of work and a few people to do that work, therefore you are forced to work long hours every day.

    No vision as to what the future of the company is, therefore no future. It feels worse everyday.
     Also, it is only focused on one customer (Since it is part of Santander Group) and that customer does whatever it wants and nobody can say anything about poor requirements, crazy time frames and lack of process

    Advice to Management

    If it wants advice, ask for feedback and do something about it.

    Focus on what the goals are in the long term, in order to have short term goals that align with the strategy. Forget about the fire of the day, otherwise today's small issue is going to become tomorrow's fire.

    Pros

    The pay rate was great over there. The overtime is there all you need.

    Cons

    The customers expect a little to much from the Produban teams. Like on the drop of the hat. Then they are ready to report you if you don't do there request fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to the customers and back up your te members. We are all a working team family we are supposed to cover eachother

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

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, experience working with teams in different time zones in a global company, close to T and parking

    Cons

    Management runs the business as if it is the 19th century. “Shut up and do as I tell you”. Politics is all about blaming other IT departments (especially ISBAN) instead of focusing on solving problems. No training, very poor planning, lack of communications and lack of help from other departments, unless is escalated, which makes projects late or very hard to accomplish on time. Very rude environment with managers (Specially Spaniards) yelling and mistreating others. You need to be there at least 11 hours a day or they will think that you are not a good enough employee. No possibilities of growth unless you are a Spaniard. If there is a position open, they will bring somebody form Spain instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point on giving advice because they will not listen to you. However, here are my 2 cents: Listen to others, train, plan, make employees feel as they are part of the company and treat people as what they are.. “People”

    I have been working at Produban full-time

    Pros

    Large IT infrastructure where you can learn about all technologies. Also you can interact with different teams and people and not just technician groups, also developers and users.

    Cons

    It is difficult to say something that does not like about the company, I think like every company you can find pros and cons, but is just the way you look the things during the time you being working on that company

    Advice to Management

    I think is to difficult to Manage a company as large as this one, and I just have great respect for all the people to manage the company. If I can suggest something would be to hire people with different perspective and not just follow with the same people who has work for the company for many years, I thing fresh ideas and new perspective would be helpful.
