I worked at First Republic Bank full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people working there overall tend to be nice and capable. I saw very little dead weight. The gender, racial, and age diversity are also all very good.

Cons

There's definitely a split between management and line workers. I have also never heard of anyone being promoted to a management position. I saw very talented people leave for better opportunities. You are only visible when someone has panicked. Otherwise, everyone tends to shrug off meetings and emails.

Advice to Management

Manage. Your workers need leadership and management. They do not need to be completely ignored. That is not helpful.
