    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent health insurance. Good people. Good opportunities to learn. 3 weeks vacation as manager or 5 years of serivce.

    Cons

    Old technology. The company will sacrifice its employees to save money. Very difficult to move within company, but not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    You have to understand that you need to spend money to make money. Working your employees to death instead of hiring when needed is unacceptable.

    Pros

    Great team environment. Great at providing solutions to client needs.

    Cons

    Technology continues to lack. Roll out of new software, especially something simple like Microsoft Outlook has been a struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing to harbor growth and development. Stay up on technology as best as possible.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pension, Stock Bonus, Decent pay/bonus, Good leadership

    Cons

    Medical benefits are horrible, they nickle and dime on all benefits. They lose all of their talent because they focus so much on financial ratios and not enough on paying for top talent. Their stock performance does pretty good, but there's other companies that have equal stock performance that pay extremely well. Those companies may be out of the few companies in their peer group, but still in the banking sector.

    Advice to Management

    See my cons, invest in good employees. Invest in benefits, I've seen countless top people leave because they can't afford their families' medical bills on the poor health insurance.

    Pros

    Promotional Opportunities seem to be pretty decent here. However, that depends on which department you are in. Retail banking's scope can be limited.

    Cons

    The pay at the bank could be higher. The pay scale makes no sense with the way they do pay grades. Basically, it's impossible to get past the midpoint.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the beauracracies within certain departments. Let trainers have a bigger impact on what needs to be trained and how we train.
