Not what I was led to believe

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat location (if you're in SF), excellent customer service levels

ConsEmployees are not treated as well as the customers are, too many politics, egos, and micromanagement.

I was sold a very different experience than I found to be true once I started working here. Some of the things I was told were true (like how they treat customers and that client service is paramount), but there's more red tape, politicking, egomaniacs, and gossiping behind the scenes. My immediate team is great, but after some of the stuff I've seen, I don't trust anyone else at the bank. They say they're a "flat organization" but that's not really true - there's still a class system in the ranks. This has only gotten worse as the company has grown.

When all is said and done, it's still a bank. Better than BofA or Wells, but maybe a bank is a bank.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease try to ferret out where things are not being done in accordance with how you preach for things to be done and people to be treated. Have more skip-levels and invite honesty with anonymity.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Friendly and down to earth co-workers. Less red tape, easier to get processes moving… Cons: Lots of kissing up to upper management. You are constantly being watched and judged whether you know it or not. Employees do at least… Advice to Senior Management: FRB has had a reputation of being a small private bank that values… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
