Pros

The pros vary upon what it is that you seek from an employer. If you like someone else giving you objectives and rewarding you for reaching them, this employer (just like many other corporate structures) offers an environment for such. This could be considered an ideal corporate banking position if you really are looking for "stability" as far as corporate banks are concerned.

Cons

Just like many corporate or publicly traded companies, the structure is highly geared toward quarterly performance. Therefore, you are obligated to make an effort to reach your objectives. Unfortunately, the bar will be raised each year or quarter along with any incentive plans meaning you could potentially face a crossroad where the interest of the customer could be squandered because of the pressure to meet your quarterly thresholds.

Advice to Management

Be cautious of what you share with not only your team, but other members of management. Everybody has their own reasons for working at a corporate bank. It is important to respect those members who wholeheartedly believe in the company and it is more important to decipher them from those who have other motives. It is important that you can comfortably surround yourself with people who best complement your work ethic so when the pressure is really on, you have a team or friend to support you.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Starting from the top, you can tell that the Executive committee at US Bank has their finger on the pulse of the Financial industry, allowing them to much more proactive than their peers when it comes to making decisions. I have nothing but full confidence that they know how to lead one of the largest financial institutions in America. Their salary is competitive within the industry. They also make a serious commitment to their employers growth within the company and their careers. Financial products offered to their customers are competitive.

    Cons

    Despite recent attempts to upgrade all the I.T. services at every location, they still seem to be technologically behind regarding software and systems. It would have been nice if they had upgraded their phones during the I.T. upgrade. Also, many facilities they occupy and furniture at locations are both majorly outdated and there doesn't seem to be much of a commitment to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade phone systems and put a bit more reasonably amount of money into furniture and buildings in order to improve the customer experience. I'm not talking about 5 star accommodations, just some newer furniture and carpet/tile would go a long way.
