    Temping for First Republic

    Temporary Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat team work and support. Positive and welcoming work environment. Knowledgeable co-workers. Even though I was only a temp, I felt like I was part of the team. Everyone was great.

    ConsI was only at First Republic for a short time. I wish the floor plan of the cubicles was more open so certain departments weren't so compartmentalized, but that's more of an architecture con than a company con.

    Let the Eagle be prevail.

    Preferred Banker (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe Company's culture reflects how clients feel about their bank: people are treated as individuals and each interaction with another is a unique experience in itself. Compensation at the Bank is highly rewarding. The Bank is a subsidiary of Merrill Lynch, sharing the excellent medical, dental, and vision plans with the parent company.

    ConsWe are on our way to a second merger, set to close in Q109. Hopefully the acquisition by Bank of America will not compromise the culture which the founders have spent some time to build and maintain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your employees posted with new developments with the acquisition.
