    I worked at First Republic Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best experience I had were always being able to step aside from what you were doing to take a breather, relax and just come back to your work station and get back to what you were doing stress free.

    Cons

    Some challenges were speech monitoring where you would be criticed just by the way you spoke to a client on the phone. Also status monitoring where you would be monitored based on what status you put yourself on while working.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is if your were to take out the speech monitoring I think the stress level you put on your employees would reduce greatly and result into working more efficiently as well.
