"It’s a great company embraces diversity. Treats employees with respect "
"Santander is a great organization to garner a lot of experience and improve your skills, and if you are a top performer Santander will recognize you for your work. However, there is very little work life balance or flexibility when it comes to schedules, which make it very difficult for a woman juggling career, family and her other obligations. "
"Challenging and interesting work. A way to go on equality for women but working on it diligently and intentionally. Excellent time to join. "
"Santander offers many great benefits and a positive work culture. As for benefits, there are programs like Returnships for mothers who have been out of the work force for some time and are looking to return, two paid-off development days, and tuition reimbursement. Personally, I enjoy schedule flexibility. There seems to be a lot of flexibility with schedules and the ability to occasionally work from home, which makes life easier in terms of tending to appointments or special family events. One note I will add is that flexibility is largely discretionary and can be up to management, which can create some gray areas. Nonetheless, if you use as needed versus expecting it, it is nice to have. The biggest benefit I continue to experience is the strength and development, both personally and professionally, through the relationships and networks that are encouraged. We have six different Employee Network Groups, including the Women's Employee Network Group, and various community partnership opportunities in which to partake. And, as a woman, I can also speak to the number of women in leadership roles - not just in our frontline positions, but in many other areas including technology, infrastructure, governance, and so on.

"We have a wonderful chairwoman but all of her direct reports are men and most all of the next level down from that are men. "

"Research the firm's U.S. growth strategy by line of business and reaffirm this during the interview process to ensure you are taking on the role that best suits your skills and your career aspirations. Seek out a mentor/sponsor early. "

"It’s very political. Very few women in chief roles. Chief executives have constant turnover. Toxic because constantly change."

"Sadly, it's a very stereotypical man-centric corporate environment. I would not recommend this organizaiton to any woman, as there is no communication, transparency or stability, and employees are regularly churned and burned. "
