Fund but stressful work place
Senior Document Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 27, 2018
When new management took over our Department with little knowledge of what our goals everything change from employee relation to customer relations. It impacted most of the employees which 50% left voluntarily.
Pros
lack of team work
Cons
short breaks

SF Compliance Analyst (Former Employee) –  SF, CASeptember 17, 2018
I felt they really didn't listen to someone who has experience in certain experience in the job. A new supervisor did not give me an opportunity to give feedback on why I was unhappy with the position.

First Republic Bank has been the best place I have had the pleasure of working at.
Client Service Associate II (Current Employee) –  Century City, CASeptember 10, 2018
Management is great. Every day you learn something new. There are two reasons as to why this is a challenging job: (1) depending on your shift, you may spend a great deal of the day just in traffic--both on the way to and from work; and (2), although you do not deal with irritated clients on a daily basis (maybe 2-3 per month), it is still a mentally draining job.
Pros
Gradifi - Makes payments towards your student loans
Cons
Very likely you will have one weekend off as well as a day during the week.

OK place to work
Scrum Master (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 24, 2018
Work culture is Ok. Management is very traditional. Too many meetings in a day without arriving a desired solution They are very conservative and does not believe in new technologies. They treat contractors as slaves.

If you are willing to work hard.....
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 4, 2018
There is really no work life balance - but if you work hard... you will be compensated. Upper management does NOT really care and they say they value family but really make you feel ad if you have to take time off for your kids or if you call in sick.
Pros
The Cafeteria
Cons
No work life balance

Contractor heavy. Middle Management is suffocating.
Project Manager (Contractor) (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 1, 2018
This bank is strange. People are polite in large groups but are extremely aggressive and me to juniors behind closed doors.

It is very heavily dependant on Contractors.
Middle Management really likes talking down to people.

nice team
ETL Developer Contingent (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 19, 2018
the tech team is large and they are all really nice and helpful. once you deliver your first piece they give you a lot of freedom. they like to take parametrization out to the Nth degree.

some tools are well standardized (like infa) and other tools like SSIS they don't really know what to do with.

you get assigned to a project where there's either a BA, DA, or a business person and those can vary from pleasant and rational to moody and cranky. it just depends on your luck.

the cafeteria is excelent! very tasty sandwiches!

the upper management is straight out of downton abbey: they like to wear ties and bow ties and fancy shoes and suits are always smiling graciously and hosting friday afternoon parties with wines and liquors and so on. very quaint! but they're nice though.
Pros
nice tech team and tasty sandwiches
Cons
occasional stress from cranky biz people

CORPORATE SECURITY ANALYST (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 9, 2018
The contractors have to suffer with low earnings and not enough hours to make a living. The managers are strict and have not empathy. Meanwhile the actual bank employees are treated like gold.

Company is growing too fast and can't keep up with growth. Teams are un organized and they don't have proper processes in place yet for the marketing team.

Great boutique bank!
Electronics Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 8, 2018
A great starting point of my career jsut having moved to San Francisco. The bank was small in size and throughout my tenure in my role, I contributed to its growth in that time. The workplace was exciting and it was something fresh everyday.

The professional mobility within the bank was bountiful, expansion was the vision of the bank. Additional bank were increased in new states in the west coast and a whole new presence occupied the east.
Pros
Great advancement opportunities
Cons

Fast-paced, well-balanced workplace; professional and attentive to internal as well as external customer relationships. My work was primarily remote with trips to San Francisco for 3-5 days each month. Cannot laud the wonderful traits of this company enough.
