Excellent Company with a Slower-Paced Environment

Database Marketing Analyst (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat work life balance, relaxed atmosphere, comp is good and the company makes good effort to develop its employees in ways other than promotion. People are very nice and the culture is positive and collaborative.

ConsCompany is very flat so "moving up" is improbable unless you're a superstar or you get pretty lucky. A substantial amount of bureaucracy involved in daily life (though not more than usual for a larger bank).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Rewarding

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at U.S. Bank

ProsThe benefits are great, especially for veterans who are given 10 extra days of paid time for their first year to help with transition from military service to the bank. In less than a year I have seen several people get promoted to higher positions within the company.

ConsThis is definitely a customer service job with the added pressures of making sales to generate revenue. If you do not know this and prepared for it, you may find the job difficult.

A good place to work if you want a proper work life balance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood work life balance. Recently have started focusing on the values of the company.

ConsNot fast paced. Sometimes feels like there is a little more steps than needed to get thongs done.

Solid company with job security

Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood leadership with vision for the future
Decent work atmosphere
Above average benefits: Health, Dental, Life Insurance, etc.

ConsPoor pay structure - rewards those who do not work hard and punishes those who do
Lack of opportunity for advancement

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure that lower level managers are actually following your advice and direction. Leadership has great vision, however, this is rarely employed downwards to the employee levels

Great Stable Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStability, Pension and 410k benefits. Many locations throughout country. Many various entry and lower level opportunities. Bonuses are offered at most levels.

ConsCompensation levels are lower than other industries. Health and Life insurance offered are good, but not great. Once a certain level of your career is reached, opportunities are limited. Not technically on the leading edge, but uses proven methods.

Advice to Senior ManagementVacation policies should be revisited, as after 25 years of service no additional days or weeks are offered. Senior employees could be shown that their experience is appreciated in a meaningful way that would not essentially be a direct cost to the Company.

My time at the bank was one of enlightenment.

Transaction Processor III (Former Employee)
Maplewood, MO

I worked at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat benefits, and effective Executive Staff.

ConsPolitics within department with no regard to the treatment of others beneath your rank.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay true to your Employee Manual and allow it represent the goals expected from each employee.

Good company

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat work life balance-the "use it or lose it" vacay policy allows you to actually use your vacation without feeling guilty. The downside is many folks wait until December to use it so the bank pretty much shuts down the last week of the year.

All the great benefits of working at a large company

Good benefits

Everyone speaks highly of the CEO--in my years working here, I've never heard anyone speak ill of him. Unheard of this day and age!

ConsUnmotivated coworkers -- NO ONE takes initiative or goes the extra mile. Many are here to collect a paycheck and a pension

Some floors in the building are very undesirable -- ugly, outdated, downright depressing surroundings.

Very outdated technology

Annual bonus is nice, on the surface, but really, it's just a deferred salary that you may or may not get. Raises? Hahahaah! They are not much, even though the bank is doing well.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to hold more people accountable.
