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

Pros

Great team work and support. Positive and welcoming work environment. Knowledgeable co-workers. Even though I was only a temp, I felt like I was part of the team. Everyone was great.

Cons

I was only at First Republic for a short time. I wish the floor plan of the cubicles was more open so certain departments weren't so compartmentalized, but that's more of an architecture con than a company con.

    "Some nice people, but management is very reactionary, prone to panic, or nonexistent"

    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.
