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.

    I worked at First Republic Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent exec. management, compensation plan is generous, smart people, flat management, strong sales and service culture.

    Cons

    The management is so flat that top producers are promoted to management jobs who have no training or insight on how to motivate employees. Can't really tell the truth to anyone about observations since no one really wants to hear it - tend to react with fear and panic which is pushed down. Management assumes comp. plan is the only thing that keeps people happy.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in experienced managers who are rewarded for growth of the area they manage as opposed to being focused on their own business.
