Frustrating, they sold me a big story, but in the end, I can't actually do the job I was hired to do.

I have been working at First Republic (CA) full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very good company culture. No budgets. They are generous with salary, less so with benefits.

Cons

Parts of the organization are very conservative. Technology is stone-age. Doesn't move very fast.

    I have been working at First Republic (CA) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    get deals done quick. however you really need to work with the senior credit team, they are tough to crack and work with, it takes over 3 years to get in their "group"... and its never guaranteed to work.

    Cons

    its like working for the Italian mob youre either a made man or your a sitting duck ready to get whacked. They promise you the world but they never deliver on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support the people that help you thrive, don't forget about who keeps you on the top of the food chain.

    I worked at First Republic (CA) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Successful organization - they know their market and tend to it well
    Friendly people
    Nice location (downtown SF)
    Employee cafeteria on premises
    Low risk of being fired for incompetence

    Cons

    Old style - in many respects 10+ years behind similar organizations
    Political - it is all about people and relationships
    Territorial and vertical (very functional organization as opposed to matrix type orgs)
    Slow and cumbersome - too often key stakeholders retrench behind rigid/outdated processes rather than try to be part of the solution, behave as "owners" and exercise their brain muscle.
