I worked at U.S. Bank

Pros

Good company ethic, Good products and easy to sell

Cons

Awful health benefits (only expensive ppo's available), if you get into a bad district they believe only in negative reinforcement and you won't hear any encouragement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thoroughly look at middle management (district managers) because they set the environment for an entire area of people. In my district it was well known that there was favoritism. If the DM didn't like you then good luck on getting promoted. They seemed to prefer hiring from the outside then promoting from within. We never heard any positive feedback. However, when his boss would show up, or Richard Davis would call, our DM would act as if he was a model employee and everyone else would smile because they knew if they said one word bad about the DM their jobs were on the line. Saw it plenty of times over my few years there.

    Some managers refuse (or are terrified to) to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to stop working with bad partners. We need to be able to tell them why they're bad partners without getting demoted.

    Long hours, lack of leadership, and limited room for growth

    Pros

    U.S. Bank is a company that prides itself providing both its customers and employees with stability and financial soundness.

    Cons

    In my personal experience, the job of In-Store Banker has awkward work hours. Granted you get to go into work later, 10 AM, but you do not leave until 7 PM. The weekend shifts are also long or awkwardly placed in the day, Saturday shifts are equivalent to a normal weekday shift at other businesses (9-5) and Sunday shift cuts the day in half (12-4). Furthermore, the branch I worked at did not have a manager, so my fellow In-Store bankers and I had to not only be responsible for customer service and sales, but also to resolve issues and concerns reserved for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire managers for those branches in which there are none and also promote from within rather than hire from the outside. There is a lot of talent in the branches that goes unnoticed and unappreciated.
