Great work culture and has a vast amount of opportunities in different locations of the world
Slow on innovation and promotion of its employees

Opportunities were available and career progress was there for those inclined. The team I worked with was excellent and helped make the environment a positive and productive one.
Branches felt distanced from executive management. At times this could cause an awkward relationship between local branches culture and corporate culture.

One of the few companies that still offers a pension plan. Lots of resources for skill development and career advancement. Both are encouraged by upper management, as well as technical innovation and research (however…)
…TOO MANY MEETINGS. The engineering team culture is that every problem can be solved with a meeting or a call. I can rarely get a long stretch of time to write code, much less invest any time into career development, innovation or research. High percentage of contractors and offshore team members. Time difference makes it difficult to collaborate with offshore teams. Codebases are generally difficult to reason about. Getting permissions and software needed for everyday work can be frustrating when first starting. Slow PTO accrual.1

Bank has lots of resources. Current state of attempting to move, culturally from a "regional" mindset to a "money center" mindset will likely be appealing to mid and sr. level managers at other money centers who may be a bit stymied in their current companies who might like a good promotional opportunity.
A Bank that had a wonderful and very collegial culture has decided to 'do it by the numbers' in the style of JPMorgan. The fact is that the management team with a lot of McKinzey retreads who have little experience with and even less understanding of banking are doing a poor of the changeover, losing extremely valuable talent would help in the transition and offering very little in the way or reward to those who are sticking around...means to say that they won't be sticking around for long. Acquisition strategy is not a real winner either.3

Recent purchase of Union Bank should bring opportunity for those in California. The bank invests a lot in digital solutions for clients. Footprint accross the country is also a pro.
Over the last few years the times have changed drastically and the current culture is toxic. Well that is provided you’re not part of the “in crowd” and have worked for certain executives in the past as an in-store branch manager. Don’t expect to be promoted due to the politics involved at every level in management all the way to the top. There’s a major company wide reorganization happening and this place is letting go of everyone by position regardless of tenure, production, or even for those have been deemed the most prestigious of employees “Legends”. This place could care less, you’re just a number. No communication about layoffs and the leaders being named are inexperienced -but well connected - clowns who know that as long as they overuse famch key company words at all times (centrality, agile, holistic, etc.) they’ll sound more intelligent than they really are.7

The work culture of US Bank provides a great work/life balance; I've never worked somewhere that encouraged the worker to take time off. The professional culture is very ethical and grounded; it makes me proud to work here.
Not being considered a major competitor to the larger institutions.1

Benefits in this country you are obligated to work for a company you dispise to obtain needed health insurance.
Corporate culture overly consumed with sales pushing clients into products they did not need or understood. Competition between sales associates as we were not bankers we were product pushers everyone for themselves as bonus compensation determined by how many 'points' had been earned at the expense of customer service. Stretch goals unrealistic fostered product slamming and deceitful practices.1

Worked with this great company for a year and loved it. The environment is relaxed despite obvious deadlines and daily tasks, even with management. Communication with upper management was well above average, when compared to other indirect experiences, which deserves to be stated. The pay was below average but the culture and balance within US Bank made it tolerable. This was the first time I've worked directly with upper management on a daily basis and it was actually quite enjoyable. Definitely recommend this company to anyone.
Nothing out of the ordinary, usual corporate issues.

The company is really serious about creating the right culture and values in the workplace. It constantly listens to employees to make the work environment better and to create more opportunity for career growth.
Salary and benefit may not be as competitive as other banks.
