    Improve benefits offering and cost.

    I worked at U.S. Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Job security would be the only pro...as long as you're okay with complacency and zero prospects for career growth.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible and the benefits package may be one of the worst in corporate America; no prospects for advancement/growth/promotion; no leadership or clear vision by management; computer systems used are old, out-dated, and not remotely user friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attempt to recognize talent within the organization and improve leadership at the management level; take some risks - this is one of the most risk averse companies in the financial sector.
