Proud to say I work at US Bank.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 10 years

ProsRichard Davis is an excellent leader. US Bank remains true to serving their customers and supporting their communities. Good solid company to work for. 401k matching contribution is a nice perk.

ConsWould like to see more promoting from within the business lines rather than bringing in outside business line employees or outside of US Bank for leadership roles. Employees who have been here for many years are often overlooked for promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek out and reward existing hard-working, loyal employees who have been with the bank for a long time (10 years or more) through promotions within the business lines.

Good work-home balance, usually. In-store is not as accomdating unless working from 9am to 7:15 pm 1-3 days/week is ok.

In-store Banker II (Current Employee)
Bend, OR (US)

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat vacation set up. 2 weeks after 90 days plus 'float' days for holidays on which we are open (approx 5 days/year, which is an extra week of vacation). They also let you purchase an extra week as well. I have a total of 4 weeks/year.

ConsIn my district, they are somewhat hypocritical. They refuse to advance you into management, even if you have superior leadership and motivational skills, unless you are a top-tier sales person. Each sales person that met the requirements thus far has failed as a manger, letting their responsibilities go and letting the branch and employees fall a part. Whereas a banker who shows excellent skill at conducting management responsibilities and duties is basically spit on because they havent yet become an "assisant banker" but has been employed with the company for several years and meets or exceeds expectations.
In addition to this, outsiders have been hired for management positions with no prior banking experience. So instead of getting support and help, subordinates are training managers on rules/regs etc and are not getting assitance with their needs.
Also, pay is not that great. My base pay is $24k a year and my bonuses only gave me an extra $3k. Im considered a top banker in my district and my annual performance raise was only .43 cents.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to give your employees more credit for the areas in which they accel. Pay better salaries.

US Bank is a great company to work for and I look forward to many years working here.

Credit Portfolio Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe company is very conservative and there is very little worry of layoffs that do occur at many of our other large competitors. Job security is great, and the people are generally easy to work with and will to help.

ConsThe internal processes/systems used are outdated and the company has not indicated that they are working to improve this.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the training processes. Given the con noted above that the systems are outdated, it would be beneficial to have a better training systems for new hires.

Best in class corporate management, atrocious human capital management

Performance Analyst (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN (US)

I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery strong leadership makes US Bank a very stable place to work with excellent long term prospects. They have been very accommodating of my needs outside the job as I managed the care of a special needs child at home.

ConsPay is below average for comparable jobs in region. Very little interest in career development. Benefits getting worse each year. Despite 2 promotions and 5 raises in 7 years, real wage growth adjusted for inflation has been virtually non-existent.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing and retaining talent or the advantages that have been realized through prudent financial management decisions will be short lived.
