    I have been working at First Republic Bank full-time

    Pros

    Unique culture with an emphasis on relationships, compensation is good.

    Cons

    There is a real lack of diversity with management. Leadership roles are occupied by white males with old school mentality. This bank operates as an old school bank with outdated technology that cannot keep up with it's own growth.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the diversity. There should be more females and minorities in leadership positions.

    Pros

    Very informal culture. Everyone is encouraged to take risks and take opportunities. There is a fantastic mentorship program that allows you connect with senior executives. General culture is not to look at hierarchy before talking to someone.

    Cons

    Its still small and growing so it may not be as organized as the bigger players. But they have a fantastic team everywhere that goes above and beyond to get things done.
