Ok for the short-term. Too small of a bank, everyone knows everyone...be careful

    Pros

    The since of pride you have working at First Republic, I have never recieved more praises from clients about how much they love First Republic, and they oddly do use the word Love when descibing the bank. That doesn't happen often at other banks. Client love the bank and wouldn't trade it for any other bank.

    Cons

    Advancement is not as quick at First Republic since the employee turnover is so low. When opportunies do come up there are so many current prospects to fill the position that they rarely even post it and give the opportunity for internal applicants to interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are a bit spoiled by the customer comments and don't praise the employees enough for what they do every day.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    We 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees posted with new developments with the acquisition.
