I have been working at FHLBank San Francisco full-time for more than a year

Pros

Lots of technology and plenty of opportunity to learn new things if you are willing to go at it on your own. Need to be motivated to go and learn on your own, but they have many things that can touch in the technology world

Cons

Lots of work to be done. They are pretty lean, which means you'll work a lot of hours. Lots of process for the size of the environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your employees more. You hired them to do a job, let them do their job. Trust in your decision that he/she is the correct person for the job you hired them for.

    I worked at FHLBank San Francisco

    Pros

    great benefits, solid company, no travel, pretty standard hours

    Cons

    Gee, where do I start?
    - horribly stressful for such a small company
    - process to the point of being just plain stupid
    - they follow ITIL to the pont of idiocy
    - management is not open and honest about direction
    - department heads (VP and SVP) often don't get along
    - for a 250 person company, the politics and process are stiffling and overwrought

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go away, you're not helping...
