    I worked at First Republic Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people for the most part are great, Jim H. built an amazing culture where people were valued. The company funded café is a really nice benefit.

    Cons

    The great culture has unfortunately not been fostered with many of the new leaders and working there, particularly in IT has been increasingly difficult. IT management does not value their people.

    Advice to Management

    Really look hard at the leadership in IT.

    Pros

    The company is growing and has good benefits. They spend time on building teams and relationships between employees by sponsoring activities

    Needs to get IT system together.

    Lots of different projects, growing company, great learning opportunities. Benefits are great: fitness stipend, commuter benefits, student loan assistance, subsidized cafe if you work in SF.

    Better planning for projects. Better communication amongst different departments and between associates and managers. Also, middle management could perhaps use more training.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Student loan pay down program, 401k match

    Cons

    Terrible management that doesn't do anything other than text on their phone the whole day. Bad attitudes. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Interesting that Grow is one of the company's value but having applied to numerous positions in different departments to do something else within the bank...good luck! The bank likes to hire outsiders or contractors rather than to train and promote from within. You're just stuck in your current position.
