    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Convivial work atmosphere
    Frequent opportunities for casual dress
    Hire from within when possible
    Offers paid volunteer days (2 after 5 yrs)
    Emphasis on going green
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Salary compression for longer term employees
    Bonuses aren't transparent - no guidelines on how to earn one or increase it - can seem random
    Stock options not offered to most employees
    Awards are capricious - more luck (right spot, right time, right manager) than anything
    Strongly discouraged from using sick time and can't use vacation days instead
    Going out on maternity leave can interfere with raises and bonuses - gender equity problems

    Advice to Management

    Better pay leads to happier more productive employees. You should take a lesson from Costco or Trader Joe's business models. Employees are an investment in the satisfaction of your clients, not a cost to keep as low as possible.

    Short-term profit doesn't equate to long-term success. So think beyond the next quarter and act as if your employees are just as important as your shareholders.

    Make bonuses and how to achieve them apparent to everyone.

    Take a hard look at your pay across gender and for equity issues caused by length of service.

    It's a large conservative bank with a great culture. Great place to work and a lot of oppopportunity for growth without the cut-throat environment at other firms.

    Cons

    Technology is a little behind but it gets the job done. Need to spend some money to improve branches.

    Advice to Management

    Update technology to improve efficiency and client experience
