    Pros

    People love the company and tend to stay a long time. There is always someone celebrating their 30th or 35th anniversary with the company.

    Cons

    The bank is very conservative when it comes to compliance, and that can make it difficult to compete with more nimble competitors. However, this could also be viewed as a 'pro' since it creates more stability.

    Pros

    lots of employee perks, treat you with respect

    Cons

    total Midwest culture, very restrictive, extremely hard to change jobs/positions unless you know someone, management does not let you go and they hire from outside more

    Advice to Management

    help your employees flourish and let them go to a better and different position so they can grow

    Pros

    Colleagues who work closely together tend to get along well; generally a pleasant place to work. Managers tend to work well with their direct reports and advocate for them strongly within the bank. The bank culture, in theory, values individuals and their contributions. It's a lean organization, so if you have a job here and perform it well, chances are your job security is solid. Hours are flexible, depending on workload. Hires/promotes from within.

    Cons

    I'm an entry-level employee (maybe slightly higher), and I'm already under pressure to work very long hours and weekends when workloads are heavy (which they often are). I only see this getting worse as my career progresses. Upper management are only seen to appreciate sales staff - internal awards are almost entirely sales-oriented, appreciation newsletters only focus on sales' contributions, and explicit promises of appreciation (e.g. team lunches with senior management) have gone unfulfilled.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff. Strike a balance between lean operations and tolerable working conditions.

    Pros

    You will have to do two or three jobs instead of one, so you get a lot of operational experience. US Bank is a great job for someone without a college degree or a college student.

    Cons

    Low pay, outdated technology, and constant cost cutting create an atmosphere of low standards and poor moral. Health and benefits are less than adequate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop constantly rationalizing how the low pay, no raise, and no bonus (for non executives) is due to "headwinds" but then rewarding yourself with exorbitant bonuses and lavish benefits.

    Pros

    I worked for US Bank as a employee or 15 years and as a contractor for 7. My advice to anyone considering work for them,Don't do it! And for current employees, you need to get out immediately.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Poor benefits and all employees are underpaid by at least 15-20% unless you sit on the 29th or 30th floors (Executives) in Minneapolis. You are expected to put in long hours and will not be rewarded because promotions are purely political in nature. I worked on average 60-65 hours, 6 days a week for 3 years received many awards and accolades and never got 1 promotion.

    Advice to Management

    If you are still considering laying off employees sometime in 2015, Why would you give 20 Million a year to the Vikings for naming rightswhen some of the money could be used to save jobs?
