    Former Employee - Intern  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Former Employee - Intern in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at U.S. Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The office has a very friendly working environment. Everybody is nice and easy to talk to. I feel peaceful and easy to focus on my work when I was working there.

    Cons

    They are not an international company, they focus on developing local business and has great ties to local companies. But if you are looking for global development, this might not be a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is good, the office is very cooperative. They focus on having a good employer and employee relationship, and their HR works really hard. The company currently has a good CEO and people like this CEO much more then the former one, so everybody is happy.

    Pros

    Demanding. Mostly fantastic people. Also, the U.S. Bank name says a lot on your resume. The brand is strong and a successful run at USB will get people's attention.

    Cons

    Slow to identify talent and advance people's careers. Harder to open doors inside the bank than it should be. Bank is so risk averse that it is afraid to fire people who need to be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify talent & create more opportunities for you best people.

    Pros

    Solid company with good prospects in the future, solid ceo

    Cons

    Be careful if you join the bank and have certifications, the wealth management group will not give me money to maintain certifications let alone enhance your current knowledge base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open minded to keing existing employees further knowledge growth

    Current Employee - Senior Applications Developer in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at U.S. Bank as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were educated, interesting, good people to work with.
    Downtown Minneapolis office very conveniently located.

    Cons

    On the job training was nonexistent.
    Decisions were not made by experts, but by management for political reasons.
    Technology being used by employees was outdated, due to long expense cycles. Software very outdated due to underpowered IT.
    Even the development team I was on lacked important tools which would have made work flow better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people when they're experts in their field.
    This should have been the reason you hired them.

    Current Employee - Paralegal III  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Current Employee - Paralegal III in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible Hours in certain departments, good work-life balance and solid training opportunities throughout the company, mid management/low level management is very helpful and willing to find an answer to any work related questions (however large or small). Great colleagues some of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    Low pay, its a bank so that's not too surprising but the company has a reputation even in the industry for paying its employees less to do more than competitors. Senior management is very limited in providing specifics to employees when it comes to what steps will help employees advance, advancement opportunities vary widely from department to department but are typically hard to come by, health insurance is a joke. Upper management tries to set up action plans based on employee feedback but the problems are usually the same, ever increasing workload with no compensation.

    Pros

    Great benefits along with plenty of opportunities for promotions. Veteran friendly company.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn in the first year. The tools are very specific to banking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new on boarding process was a great help. Continue to put resources there. A key for me going forward is the education benefit. I plan to be with the company for several years to come.
