    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Convivial work atmosphere
    Frequent opportunities for casual dress
    Hire from within when possible
    Offers paid volunteer days (2 after 5 yrs)
    Emphasis on going green
    Good work/life balance
    Can buy an extra week of vacation
    Has a good reputation as an ethical financial institution

    Cons

    Salary compression for longer term employees
    Bonuses aren't transparent - no guidelines on how to earn one or increase it - can seem random
    Stock options not offered to most employees
    Awards are capricious - more luck (right spot, right time, right manager) than anything
    Strongly discouraged from using sick time and can't use vacation days instead
    Going out on maternity leave can interfere with raises and bonuses - gender equity problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay leads to happier more productive employees. You should take a lesson from Costco or Trader Joe's business models. Employees are an investment in the satisfaction of your clients, not a cost to keep as low as possible.

    Short-term profit doesn't equate to long-term success. So think beyond the next quarter and act as if your employees are just as important as your shareholders.

    Make bonuses and how to achieve them apparent to everyone.

    Take a hard look at your pay across gender and for equity issues caused by length of service.

    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Higher levels of management are extremely sharp, professional, and committed to the success of the company.

    Cons

    As with any large company, management discretion and innovation to change is increasingly bureaucratic further down in the organization. The right ears are out there if you know where to find them, however the conservative culture generally accepts a slower pace of change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company would benefit from improved efforts at upward mobility and recognition. Current system of promotion/recognition is extremely slow and difficult. May have some issues with responsibility and pay parity.
