I worked at First Republic Bank as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Great culture with accessible middle/upper management.
Ethical business practices and a customer focus in all departments and divisions.
First Republic really puts the corporate spin on boutique banking in a great way.

Cons

Little focus on innovation or keeping up with industry standards.
Relationship managers can be very egocentric in interactions with line staff.

Advice to Management

Work to be more inclusive with all employees and across all departments.

    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.
