    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Fed has an important mission and has been a major force for economic stabilization over the past few years. It can be a great organization to do well by doing good, especially as a young person. Most employees are passionate and excited about the work they're doing. The pension, benefits, and work-life balance are excellent.

    Cons

    The Board seems to prioritize giving management roles to those who are talented at their group's work rather than emphasizing leadership/management potential or skill. We have a lot of gifted practitioners who seem to flounder when forced to manage and set strategy. On the other hand, young people interested in moving into management don't have a clear path to do so. Those willing to do the most work may quickly find themselves overwhelmed and unable to get management buy-in to delegate/rebalance their work. Also, the superstar premium is modest. Unlike at some private sector employers, taking on more work and hitting it out of the park may result in a raise and bonus only moderately larger than that received by those who are barely skating along. Since the upside is limited but the added workload and resultant stress can be substantial, employees are loath to take on new responsibilities. Getting rid of bad employees seems to be excessively difficult. Certain problem employees and managers are worked around rather than removed or demoted.

    Advice to Management

    Encouraging more churn would shake out a lot of the petty politics and fiefdoms, helping to break the siloed mindset. The rotational programs that are currently happening within the research divisions are a step in the right direction. The Board would be well served to build a pipeline of young management trainees and give them opportunities for project management roles and other development prior to becoming group or section managers. Talented young people interested in management frequently leave because they worry it will take years or even decades to have a chance at a management position.
