Best in class corporate management, atrocious human capital management

Performance Analyst (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

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

ProsVery strong leadership makes US Bank a very stable place to work with excellent long term prospects. They have been very accommodating of my needs outside the job as I managed the care of a special needs child at home.

ConsPay is below average for comparable jobs in region. Very little interest in career development. Benefits getting worse each year. Despite 2 promotions and 5 raises in 7 years, real wage growth adjusted for inflation has been virtually non-existent.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing and retaining talent or the advantages that have been realized through prudent financial management decisions will be short lived.

audit manager

Audit Manager (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time

ProsBank'a executive leadership is excellent. Richard Davis, CEO, seems to want to do the right thing. All in all, USB is a great bank to work for.

ConsTechnologically, we are not the best in the industry. However, there's effort to upgrade our workstations to bring us more current with the rest of the industry.

Positive environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 10 years

ProsEmployees feel valued and respected. There is opportunity to move within the bank which offers with a wide variety of jobs. A very good accidental career.

ConsLimited upward mobility opportunity, especially if one stays in the same business line. There are high expectations of staff: can be as much a pro as con.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent Company with a Slower-Paced Environment

Database Marketing Analyst (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat work life balance, relaxed atmosphere, comp is good and the company makes good effort to develop its employees in ways other than promotion. People are very nice and the culture is positive and collaborative.

ConsCompany is very flat so "moving up" is improbable unless you're a superstar or you get pretty lucky. A substantial amount of bureaucracy involved in daily life (though not more than usual for a larger bank).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

S.M.A.R.T. place to work

Quantitative Risk Analyst (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsVery organized, responsive, pleasant, constructive, pro-active, engaged company to work. It will depend on your manager but USB is very much into onboarding, engaging, coaching, and developing their employees. The salary is competitive, the bonuses are great, and the company is solvent.

ConsI am told that USB is "cheap" compared to other banks but have not observed this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work Richard Davis; you ROCK!

Solid company with job security

Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

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

ProsGood leadership with vision for the future
Decent work atmosphere
Above average benefits: Health, Dental, Life Insurance, etc.

ConsPoor pay structure - rewards those who do not work hard and punishes those who do
Lack of opportunity for advancement

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure that lower level managers are actually following your advice and direction. Leadership has great vision, however, this is rarely employed downwards to the employee levels

Great Stable Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStability, Pension and 410k benefits. Many locations throughout country. Many various entry and lower level opportunities. Bonuses are offered at most levels.

ConsCompensation levels are lower than other industries. Health and Life insurance offered are good, but not great. Once a certain level of your career is reached, opportunities are limited. Not technically on the leading edge, but uses proven methods.

Advice to Senior ManagementVacation policies should be revisited, as after 25 years of service no additional days or weeks are offered. Senior employees could be shown that their experience is appreciated in a meaningful way that would not essentially be a direct cost to the Company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
