Team Lead - Operations Control (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 30, 2018
I worked at First Republic Bank for 7 years. I found the company to be a good fit for me. They are the top company for customer service and are growing really fast. I would recommend the company as a great company to work for.

Worst place I ever worked in my entire professional career.
Banker (Former Employee) –  Palm Beach, FLNovember 29, 2018
Worst management on the planet. No people skills and employees are encouraged to rat on each other. Cut throat environment. Employees are miserable but stay for the benefits and salary.
Pros

Terrible management

Preferred Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Los Altos, CANovember 8, 2018
First Republic takes pride in ensuring the clients are always happy, and they don't just stop there. You have opportunity to do what is best for your clients, and grow from there. There are so many resources at your finger tip, and while the company is growing you still feel like a family.

Management needs to retire
Chief of Staff (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 4, 2018
The bank's management team is TOO hierarchical and there are a LOT of managers sitting around waiting to retire and adding NO value. There is literally no sense of fun, the environment is stiff and stale. They are operating like 1950.
I came for the culture and opportunity and I am leaving because its a horrible place.
Pros
Subsidized lunches, good benefits
Cons
The place kills creativity

Underwriting Manager/Senior Loan Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 12, 2018
The people are wonderful to work with. I worked with company 14 years starting with a 700 employees growing to over 4000. With the growth a lot of politics and the culture was lost.

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
