I worked at First Republic Bank full-time

Pros

- great learning experience on how to do things on your own
- great company culture
- invests in employees (schooling)
- great benefits/salary

Cons

- leadership is lacking and no clear direction of where the company wants to go.
- the HR department is ineffective, lots of learning to do.
- teams do not feel supported, as long as the manager is an "earner" can get away with anything.
- learn by trial and error, senior staff does not teach or show you the FRB way.
-can be difficult to manage a work/life balance.

Advice to Management

Keep your eyes open to potential problems in teams and keep company values for employees as well, not just the customers. If you find good, intelligent people, make sure to keep them around - look at the larger picture of what a person is capable of instead of a shortsightedness of what is currently beneficial.
