    I worked at U.S. Bank as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice team to work with. Lots of opportunities to learn about development of high performance distributed enterprise systems. Feels empowered by any new releases of very useful product.

    Cons

    Better project organization would improve with much less time on testing and deployment. Physical separation of team members led to misunderstanding time-to-time.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time

    Pros

    U.S. Bank's core values align with my personal values. I am supported and encouraged to develop at my own pace. Depending on the position that you have- this company is progressive in it's policies on remote and flexible work options.

    Cons

    Salaries are low, but the trade off is work-life balance and an inclusive, fair and positive culture.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Fargo, ND (US)

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with the bank for about 7 months now and so far everything has been great. What you do at this position is helping corporate and government customers with their credit card questions, inquiries and other questions that they might have. I'm not sure if I have just been lucky but the managers that I have are really great. They are there for any questions that I may have and are always willing to help, talk to you and find out the answer if they don't know it. Benefits are good in my opinion. I got a bonus and a raise after my sixth month, I thought that was great. Also when I started I had to work every other weekend, but after five months that changed and now my schedule is M-F 8:30-5:00 which is awesome.

    Cons

    After some time the job can get boring. Don't get too comfy in your cube cause you might have to change it multiple times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more access to the internet to the customer service people, it can get really boring on a slow days. At least to news websites.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are my extended family. The employees and customers are what what makes it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management does not have a clue about branch life. They are to far removed. The branches are under staffed for the type of business they want to run. The intentions are good, just not well planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the branches and work as a teller, banker, Manager for a week once a year to keep you humble to what your employees go through on a daily basis. This may change the way we look at the bottom line.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank

    Pros

    Great management, opportunities for cash bonuses based on referrals, management really focuses on employee development and feels like you are really being supported and looked out for, hire within first so its nice that employees looking to advance have a better chance, best banking package given to employees

    Cons

    somewhat archaic way of doing things, operations is a pain in the butt and they really focus in on making sure you are doing everything procedurally correct and its a big issue if your not, audit season is a headache and huge stress factor, customer service is rated and can be a pain in the butt because of the all or nothing mentality of scoring, referrals get annoying, can be high stress due to nature of customer service industries, hard to get a promotion or raise it seems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise upper management to focus on not only recognizing but REWARDING employees for their hard work; banking is a tough and demanding (mentally and emotionally) job; good employees don't get enough credit and compensation for that. Also, the bank brand is weak.
