    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are above average (but are NOT worth coming to work here for.)

    Most hourly employees seem satisfied

    Cons

    (The below has been written from the viewpoint of someone that worked in what's known as the "Treasury" part of this place.)

    Cons:

    Having to work with a bunch of miserable lifers that never went to college, and thus think of this place as being "the big time" even though they simultaneously are miserable. These people spend the entirety of their one-dimensional lives coming into the same job every single day for decades. It's no wonder they're miserable. It's just too bad they can't keep it to themselves.

    Every part of the metro area has its own unique culture. This place has a lot of people that commute from the north metro. If you strongly identify with north metro "culture", then you may really like it here. Especially if you never completed college and have a chip on your shoulder for those that have.

    That's not to say that everyone here that went to college is nice, great, etc. There certainly are some that are equally grizzled and miserable.. The rate of occurrence just isn't quite as high.

    As a salaried employee, you'll spend your business hours doing an incoherent set of grunt tasks at a fever pitch (despite having a professional job title), and be expected to work weekends as well. The whip never stops cracking for salaried employees.

    Every day you walk into the "beautiful building" (as if that's important) you go back in time a few decades, and not in a nice nostalgic way.

    I could write a book about why this is a horrible place to work, but I'll close things off with a couple things you might find...peculiar...:

    - Charging your cell phone at your desk makes you subject to termination.
    - Every day or every week, someone walks around yanking on your desk drawers to make sure they're all locked. If they're not, you could be fired the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realistically, nothing. Chances are pretty good that you've only worked at this place and have no real idea how other organizations are run.

    Doesn't Recommend
