    I have been working at First Republic Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company that knows who it is and is very disciplined about sticking to what they know. Great culture and the client is definitely the focal point of everything.

    Cons

    There seem to be a number of quirky people in executive roles and there is a very tight circle of who is "in" and who is "out".

    I have been working at First Republic Bank full-time

    Pros

    Has grown tremendously in the past 10 years and yet, for the most part, has retained it’s culture. Just enough depart,ents to get things done quickly. Fantastic customer service levels nd wide product range. Creative and operates with spontaneity.

    At times there is too much focus on the bottom line to keep Wall Street happy and stock price up. But overall, a great organization with strong support of employees for the most part.

    Keep the communication channels open in all directions...up, down, and sideways to make all employees feel connected and part of the team.
