I worked at First Republic (CA)

Pros

Classic nine to five environment; job never required anything more than what was expected inside of normal working hours. Lots of PTO time for full time employees. It seems like full timers take one day off every few weeks in addition to vacations.

Cons

Heard a lot of grumbling about how internal politics divide the IT department. No feeling of unity nor shared responsibility. Some decisions seemed arbitrary and personal without communicating a real justification, in a dominant/submissive type relationship rather then fostering sense of community and shared responsibility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The IT group should foster a more team-oriented unified community with a sense of shared responsibility rather then feel segmented into fiefdoms, where internal politics trump getting work done.

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

    I have been working at First Republic (CA)

    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.
