    Complacent environment, complete lack of management and leadership

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

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

    ConsCompensation 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 Senior ManagementAttempt 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    they cheap

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThey have decent benefits and are making an effort as a whole to try to reward employees. They give a day off to volunteer. Also being a bank there are quite a few paid holidays off!

    Decent place for new grads, not the place for a lasting career

    Structured Finance Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsVery little risk, great co-workers, great work-life balance

    ConsBelow industry average, across the board, in all positions. US Bank is too conservative to pay a competitive salary to retain top talent. As such, the turnover in analyst roles is extremely high after 2 years of experience, increasing the workload to unrealistic levels for the employees that decide to stay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay high level employees the industry average for their services, or expect to be the bank where everyone goes to gain experience, and jump ship, after they've learned the skills valued by your competitors.

    Solid company, consistently positive financials, not reliant on "too big to fail" crutch, has compensation challenges

    Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsOld school bank focused on old school lending and fee generating annuity streams. Side stepped the credit crises by not overextending itself in fancy derivatives. Relaxed workplace atmosphere with good work/life balance.

    ConsMeritocracy is preached as it is at any company however compensation is not able to keep up with increasing demands of operational functions; high turnover rates not addressed by management; lateral mobility within organization is poor.
