    Pros

    There is definitely a pride around the bank's ethics, strong standing in the industry, and culture of service and kindness. The pay was also good, and there are opportunities to learn and grow if you're interested in the industry.

    Cons

    Senior Management oversight was lacking in the sense that no feedback was a solicited and incompetent middle management was free to abuse power and create an atmosphere of mistrust and absence of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, be sure to reach out at least quarterly to the directs reporting to middle management--those of us toughing it out on the ground level nine to ten hours a day need to know that you care if our manager is effective, challenging, and pro-active. When we contact you with feedback. act on it--rather than waiting for several of us to quit due to management inefficacy.

    Pros

    The company culture was good, just seemed to work at a slower conservative pace compared to other banks.

    Cons

    The benefits were good, but the salary was awful compared to the market rate for the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be quicker to update the technology used. Using Windows XP and Microsoft 98 in 2014 is not acceptable when you are a large financial institution.

    Pays well, room for growth if you work hard

    Cons

    Have to fight for raises and bonuses, but if you do, they will provide. Can't get help internally very easily, everything is corporate 800 numbers even for employees.

    U.S. Bank tries very hard to be very involved with everything but at the same time they are wasting to much time.

    Pros

    The work life balance is pretty decent. They are very understanding if you have something that you need to take care of. The managers sit down with you every few months to make sure things are going ok

    Cons

    You have to use sick days for doctor appointments and you only get 6 to begin with. There are a lot of pointless meetings that are required that take large portions of your day.
    There is a generally feeling that a lot of the stuff you do is to protect yourself in case someone comes to blame you for a mistake. Instead of figuring out a solution and preventing it from happening the next time, it is like everyone wants to point a finger.
